20 August 1908


The link between Rangers FC and the Freemasons has often been commented upon, but going back 100 years in time the Ibrox club was not the only senior outfit with links to the Masons. On 20 August 1908 a Masonic Sports event took place at Shawfield, the proceedings including a football match between Clyde and Partick Thistle, won 3-2 by the visitors. The match was in aid of the Temple fund of Lodge Union & Crown.

Also on this day Third Lanark announced the appointment of a new manager, Eddie Tarbat, a schoolteacher and former Airdrieonians player.
