    Yes, I heard about it a couple of days after it occurred. There has been much debate as to whether the referee should have abandoned the game and/or sent off players deliberately trying to lose under the grounds of unsportsmanlike behaviour, but apparently the referee was correct to allow the game to continue.

    I have been unable to ascertain whether the result has been ratified (still looking) but it seems logical to me to strike it (the scoreline) from the records as cheating to lose is still cheating.

    As far as I am concerned, Arbroath are still the kings (36-0 victors over Bon Acord, Scottish Cup)
