The 1889 Scottish Cup (snow) Final

Post by kjell » Fri Jun 30, 2017 11:25 pm

Hello,

In online sources, such as the Celtic wiki, it says that "John Kelly" was the Celtic goalkeeper in snow final on February 2, 1889, match was ordered to be replayed the following week.

In a sketch in the Scottish Referee for February 4, 1889 - for both Third Lanark and the Celtic - it shows a sketch of William Dunning as the Celtic goalkeeper in this final.

Does anyone know what is correct?

Hi Kjell,

John Kelly was the goalkeeper for Celtic in both these matches. See an extract below from the 'maleysbhoys' website.

"Celtic would go onto beat Dumbarton 4-1 in the semi-finals, before losing to Third Lanark 2-1 in the Scottish Cup Final (this was the second final between the teams in only a week; however, due to heavy snow, both teams agreed prior to the first match that it would only be a friendly – regardless, Third Lanark won 3-0). However, John Kelly was the Celtic goalkeeper for all of these matches, as William Dunning departed for Glasgow Hibernians just after New Year. He only played twice more for Celtic after the Scottish Cup win over East Stirlingshire, as Celtic defeated Vale of Leven in a friendly (1-2) and Clydesdale in the North Eastern Cup (1-5)."

Here is the link to Dunning's page:

Hope this helps.
