ArticlesMatch report from The Scotsman, 6th December 1920
[...] There was a great crowd at Brockville Park to witness what proved to be a stirring encounter between Falkirk and Celtic. The verdict rested with the visitors, who scored thrice to Falkirk's once, but on the general run of the game a draw would have been quite a fair result. The Celtic came within an ace [?] of scoring in the opening minutesm but Ferguson brought off a remarkably clever save from a great shot by McFarlane. this narrow escape set the Falkirk team on edge, the half-backs in particular rising to the occasion, with the resuilt that the Celts failed to get properly set, and progress, they found, was difficult to make. So well did Falkirk play in the first half of the game that it seemed odds on them taking the leadbefore the interval, but a surprise shot from McLean beat Ferguson all the way, and the situation was reversed. Falkirk put up a great fight in the second half, and their persistent attack was rewarded by a fine goal from the foot of Hamilton. Thereafter the Celtic goal had many wonderful escapes from downfall, but in the last five minutes McInally gave the vistors the points with two smartly taken goals. The outstanding feature of a hard game was the brilliant play of Townsley at centre-half for falkirk. The attendance was estimated at 15,000.
