Celtic v. Shettleston.—These teams played their Scottish Cup tie at Parkhead before a fair attendance of spectators: Owing to heavy rain the ground was in a greasy condition, Both teams were represented. The Celts winning the toss, played with a strong wind in their favour. The Shettleston at once surprised their opponents by laying siege to their goal, Dunning on several occasions having to use his smartest tactics to avoid disaster. Through a miskick by one of the bucks, the Celts gained their first point. From this till half-time play was pretty equal. The home team managed a second goal just before the whistle sounded. In the second portion the Shettleston fell away entirely while the Celts added other three points, thus getting into the second round by five goals to one.
