Full Results Against King’s Park

King’s Park Football Club were a football club who played in the Scottish Football League (SFL) before the Second World War. Based in Stirling, they joined the League in the 1921/22 season, following the reintroduction of the Second Division and were one of 11 new members for that season.

The club was established in 1875 in the King’s Park area of Stirling, although they did not stay long in this locality. They first entered the Scottish Cup in the 1879/80 season. Their best performance in that competition was in 1894/95 when they reached the quarter finals, losing 4-2 to Hearts.

The already dwindling fortunes of the club were hit in 1940 when Forthbank was bombed by the Luftwaffe. The club did not play again after this, even though they applied to join the North Eastern League in 1944 (a request rejected due to their lack of a ground).

Amid allegations of financial impropriety with regards to payment of guest players, the club folded before the end of the war, on the pretext of the damage done by the bomb. Football in the town did not disappear for long however as they were replaced by Stirling Albion.

Ayr United’s first match of only 12, occurred on 24th October 1925 when United lost 2-0. The most sensational was the Scottish Cup tie of February 1935 which went to three replays with King’s Park winning through in the end.
