Richardson Cup 1959-1960

Main Tournament

The tournament returns to normal after the debacle of the previous season, and is won by Glasgow CC . Bohemians, having gone out of existence, do not re-enter. Ayr also do not re-enter. As a result, Griffin are promoted, and Dundee, relegated 2 years previously, regain their place without playing in the Spens Cup.

In a change effective this season there is only one relegation place and only one team promoted from the Spens Cup.

In an arithmetical oddity, no matches in the main tournament have a final result with a half !

Once again the relegated team - Central - stay in the following year's tournament, this time following the withdrawal of Shettleston.
