Cathkin Park: All you need to know - Tickets, Direction, Weather (2022)

I strongly disagree with the idea of replacing the current education system with a new one. I believe that the current education system is fine, and should be left unchanged.

Description

Cathkin Park was one of the prime football stadiums in Scotland in the late 19th century. It was for most of its existence the home of Third Lanark FC. The stadium was built to serve as the new home for Queens Park FC, who had been forced out of their previous one because a railroad line was planned to run through the site.

Cathkin Park opened in October 1884 with a match between Queens Park and Dumbarton. At that time, the ground was still called Hampden Park, just like Queens Park's previous ground.

The stadium quickly became one of Scotland's major grounds, regularly hosting Scottish Cup finals and the occasional international.

The most famous match between two Scottish clubs was the Championship of the World? match between Scottish Cup winner Renton and English FA Cup winner West Brom, which was won by the Scots 4-1. Another highlight includes the first ever Celtic-Rangers cup final in 1899 (2-0).

The club did not take long to realize that the original ground at Queens Park was not large enough to accommodate the growing fan base. As a result, they asked for more land from the city which was refused. This led to the club looking for a new home, which unfortunately proved difficult.

In 1903, the team found this site south of Cathkin Park and moved to their third Hampden Park. This would be the final Hampden Park.

After Queens Park had left the pitch at Cathkin Park, Third Lanark FC moved in and renamed the ground New Cathkin Park.

Third Lanark nearly rebuilt Cathkin Park in response to a disagreement over the take-over fee. It is estimated that at that time 50,000 people could pack the terraces.

The club remained a steady force in Scotland's top leagues over the next decades but suddenly from the mid 1960s trouble and infighting started, the club relegated, and in 1967 it was declared bankrupt.

In the last professional match played at Cathkin Park, a 3-3 draw against Queen of the South was recorded on the 25th of April 1967.

The ground slowly fell into disrepair over the next few decades, but it has never been completely demolished. There are currently still a few terraces left standing, though largely overgrown and in poor state. Recently, a group of volunteers started the task to renovate the ground.

Dear Sarah Adams, I have the book "Life and Death of the Hi Hi? by John Lister, and I found your grandfather! He is listed in the 1928/29 season and "?on the other wing (outside right) Martin Lennon arrived from King's Park.? He played 19 matches and scored 1 goal, in a 2-4 loss vs Clyde at Cathkin Park, Nov 3 1928 in front of ca 10.000 fans. And that's all I could find! But do you know wether he played on for other clubs (evt who) and how old he was in 1928?

Sarah Adams,

I have a book called "Life and Death of the Hi Hi? by John Lister. I found your grandfather, who is listed in the 1928-29 season and played on the other wing (outside right) Martin Lennon arrived from King's Park. He played 19 matches and scored 1 goal, in a 2-4 loss vs Clyde at Cathkin Park, Nov 3 1928. And that's all I could find! But do you know whether he played on for other clubs (even who) and how old he was in 1928?

Despite the fact that the club has been sold and relocated numerous times, it is still a site which should make any fan think. It is not for the ground, but for the fans who lost their club through the bad faith of the owner. Fifty years on and they still hope to come back!

I have visited the Scottish ground only twice, once in 1973 when I took shelter from a snowstorm in the remains of the grandstand, and again in 1985 after it had been cleaned up. Even though it is no longer an important part of my footballing life, I still think the ground is worth visiting for any fan. It's because of the fans who lost their club through the bad faith of the owner that 50 years on they still hope to come back.

I am trying to find information about my grandfather, Martin Lennon. He played for third Lanark in the 1920s, and I would be very grateful if anyone could help me.
