Accies in the Quarter Final

Despite us having been around since the very earliest years of the Scottish Cup competition (from it’s second season), and also being the only team to have reached two or more finals, yet never won it, this Saturday’s game at Ibrox is only the 14th quarter final appearance by Accies in our history in the Scottish Cup.

Here are our previous last-eight appearances –

ACCIES SCOTTISH CUP QUARTER FINAL APPEARANCES

Saturday sees Accies in the last eight (quarter final stage) of the Scottish Cup for only the 14th time in our history. It would be fair to say that our record in this competition over the years hasn’t been the best, given our general standing in the game over that period. Our best period was obviously between the wars, whilst we failed to reach the quarter finals at all between 1967 and 2006.

Here we go with our quarter final games over the years:-
