Late Tackle Football Magazine - - RECORD WIN -

That year, Ar­broath went on to slaugh­ter lo­cal ri­vals For­far Ath­letic 9-1 in the next round, Dundee East End 7-1 in the third, be­fore fi­nally bow­ing out of the com­pe­ti­tion in a keenly fought 5-3 loss to Hiber­nian in the fourth round. As for Bon Ac­cord, the records show that they en­tered the Scot­tish Cup twice in sub­se­quent years (1891-92 and 1903-04). In the for­mer, they beat Stone­haven 8-0 away be­fore los­ing to Aberdeen 5-2 at home.

Whether these teams were the same club can­not be as­cer­tained.

What is for cer­tain is that Bon Ac­cord will al­ways be re­mem­bered in Scot­tish and Bri­tish foot­balling folk­lore for the David vs Go­liath match that quite didn’t go to plan.
