ArticlesMatch report from The Scotsman, February 27th 1922
[...] Hamilton Academicals upset the popular fancy by beating the Celtic at Parkhead, Glasgow. On the run of the game the Celtic were, perhaps, a trifle unfortunate to be beaten, but the visitors deserve every credit for the fine show they put up. A strong wind troubled the players, but the Academicals, who had its assistance in the first half, were full of running, and shot at every opportunity. The Celtic defence were kept continually on the move, but after 22 minutes Cottingham took a pass from Hanlon, and drove the ball into the net. After that the visitors played with great confidence, and Cottingham performed a great day's work by getting the better of Shaw twice, thus performing the "hat trick".The Celtic went all out to improve their position after the interval, but they were beaten by a great set of defenders, in which White, Hall, and Thomson excelled. Dodds scored for Celtic from a penalty kick. The attendance was about 30,000.
