Description

The Scottish Cup was first played for in season 1873/74, and is the trophy which has the longest continued existence in the sporting world. Giant-killings, replays, last-minute goals and refereeing decisions have all been part of the tournament. Every year's competition is analysed in an enthralling account of Scotland's longest-lasting tournament.
