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.
