Club adverts in the Scottish press, 23 October 1888

Advertisements for cup ties and exhibition matches (the Scottish Football League wasn't formed until 1890). The Rangers versus Celtic Glasgow Cup Tie is one of several matches offering free entry to women. The growth of professionalism in the game south of the border is represented by an advert from a "leading Lancashire Association Club" for "a First-Class Centre and Right Wing Player".

Included in 'The Scottish Umpire', 23 Oct 1888, from the National Cycle Archive; document reference: MSS.328/C/5/SCU, vol.7-9
