Notes
"A dream of 50 years has been realised by Heart of Midlothian. At last the Scottish Cup has been won, to erase the sufferings of half a century, and if the search has been long.""There is no shadow of doubt that victory in Saturday’s final at Hampden Stadium, Glasgow went to the better side."
