Dates of existence
The Training College Football Club was funded by membership subscription and managed by two committees: the juniors and the seniors. Traditionally, the junior and senior teams faced each other in a yearly match, whilst both also played competitive league matches each Saturday afternoon during the season. Initially the exclusive preserve of men of the Scottish School of Physical Education, from 1959 this extremely popular club began to attract men from the wider student and graduate bodies. In the 1950s, the college football team achieved one of its greatest success: winning the Amateur Scottish Cup.
