Unlike the previous year, the weather was forecast to be good but this preview in the ‘Scottish Referee’ was a bit on the gloomy side. Talk about ‘faint praise’?
There was a brief review of the sports with interesting notes on some of the participants before the actual results were printed.
But what of the schools championship? Not printed in either the ‘Glasgow Herald’ or ‘Scotsman’ nor even in the ‘Referee’. A bried view of the individual champions is below.
