Scottish Cup Final!

For some reason, there’s been a lot of talk recently about the Scottish Cup Final!  In 1984, the Sentinel featured a report on a Scottish Cup Final, but this was a cup for basketball not football.  During the 1980’s, there were regular articles about the success of WHEC basketball teams and in 1984 the Under 14s team made it all the way to the Scottish Cup final in Grangemouth.  Their winning semi final match is featured in the report here.

Sadly, they missed out that time round, being beaten in the final by Cumnock 60-54.  WHEC basketball teams continued to feature on the Sentinel pages and can be seen in this article about the success of sport at the WHEC.
