The event continued to grow with the 23 participating schools of 1920 becoming 24 in 1921. No list has been found but among the first three in every event we find 16 schools, named below, sharing in the spoils. They came from Glasgow, Edinburgh Dollar (now Dollar Academy after starting out as Dollar Institution and few years when both designations were used) and Dunfermline. They were – Allan Glen’s, Ayr Academy, Battlefield, Bellahouston Academy, Bell Baxter HS, Dollar Academy, Dumbarton Academy, Dunfermline HS, Heriots, Hillhead HS, Leith Academy, Perth Academy, Royal High School, Stewart’, Trinity and Whitehill. It was a healthy scene with numbers growing, records being eclipsed at every meeting and a spread of the rewards among all sorts of schools.
