The Glasgow Herald, Aug 25, 1919
At Hamilton Celtic had an uphill fight made very difficult by Mason, whose saving of a penalty kick from McLean was merely one item in a masterly display of goalkeeping. A little more care on the part of Hakefost would have involved the champions in a two goal deficit at the interval. McInally was not so successful as usual; only once did he evade McNamee, and long range shooting was lost upon Mason. A veteran took up where the recruit left off, and the last and best goal of the game was scored by McMenemy, the outstanding forward on either side.
