Obscure Falkirk Matches - FFC Veterans v ESFC Veterans


Falkirk Veterans 2 East Stirlingshire Veterans 2

Played at Brockville Park, Falkirk on 17th March 1894

This match was played to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first Stirlingshire Cup Final between these two teams. It was endeavoured to regather the actual players who played in that match, but inevitably several players were unavailable so substitutes of the time filled their places.
