Full Results Against Arthurlie

Arthurlie Football Club are a football team from Barrhead, East Renfrewshire in Scotland. Based at Dunterlie Park, they play in the SJFA West Region Championship. They were founded in 1874 and played as a senior side until 1929. The club reached the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup in three consecutive seasons from 1880/81, with their 1883 tie with Kilmarnock Athletic taking four games to settle.

A notable early result was a 4-2 defeat of Celtic in the first round of the 1896/97 Scottish Cup. Celtic avenged this defeat with a 7-0 victory in Barrhead at the same stage the following season and the two clubs met again in Arthurlie’s last ever Scottish Cup tie to date in 1929, with the Glasgow side winning 5-1 at Celtic Park.

With regard to league football, the club became a founder member of the Scottish Football Federation in 1891, winning that competition in its first year before joining the Scottish Football Alliance in 1893. Arthurlie obtained membership of the Scottish Football League in 1901 and achieved modest results in Division 2, with a highest finish of joint second in 1906/07.

That division ceased in 1915, during the First World War, but Arthurlie did not immediately rejoin the league after the war ended.

They instead waited until 1923 to apply for membership of the newly created Third Division. Arthurlie immediately won the Third Division championship, and four reasonably successful seasons in the Second Division followed. Financial problems forced the club to resign its membership of the league with six games of the 1928/29 season to play.

As the club had played all the promotion-chasing clubs, their results were allowed to stand.

They played against Ayr United on twelve occasions, all in the 2nd Division during which period the Honest Men lost only once.
