‘Tic Toons – Jimmy Quinn. Cup Final Hat-Trick Hero, 1904 (Part 1)

'Tic Toons - Jimmy Quinn.  Cup Final Hat-Trick Hero, 1904 (Part 1)

The legend of The Mighty Quinn started here. The 1904 Scottish Cup Final against Rangers; Celtic two down after only 11 minutes. The stuff of nightmares.

Or the stuff of dreams for Jimmy Quinn from Croy. A magnificent solo effort pulled one back for the Bhoys in 37 minutes. Four minutes later he smashed home a cross to equalise the final before the half-time break.

Ten minutes from the end he again charged the Rangers defence, one paper saying he ‘ploughed with the ball into the net and Rangers were left in the lonely furrow of humiliation and defeat.’

Quinn 3, Rangers 2.

This cartoon illustration of key moments in the match, including the point where Quinn was mobbed by his team-mates, was published in the Glasgow Observer. The Baillie Cartoon Supplement follows . . .
