Cathkin Park Third Lanark AC

third lanark

Third Lanark Athletic Club was a professional Scottish football club based in Glasgow. Founded in 1872 as an offshoot of the 3rd Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers.

They were founder members of the Scottish Football Association (SFA) in 1872 and the Scottish Football League (SFL) in 1890.

Third Lanark went out of business in 1967 as a result of mismanagement, six years after having finished in third place in the SFL. Their former ground, Cathkin Park in Crosshill, is still partially standing and used for minor football.
