Richardson Cup 1967-1968
Glasgow University Union CC after being the runners up for 2 successive seasons, finally win the cup, and begin their own purple patch - winning the cup 4 times in 5 years. The first new name on the trophy in 16 years, and only the eighth club to win it.
In January 1968, Glasgow's 5 year reign as champions is finally ended after a record run of 16 matches undefeated in the competition since losing to Bon Accord in January 1962, at the hands of Civil Service.
Two new faces appear in the shape of Parkglen - an offshoot of Cathcart and Allan Glen's school - and the third of Scotland's ancient universities in Edinburgh. Both win their opening matches and remain in the tournament.
