Scottish Challenge Cup

The Scottish Football League Challenge Cup, commonly known as the Scottish Challenge Cup, is a knockout football cup competition organised by the Scottish Football League. Entry is open to the 30 member clubs of the Scottish Football League and from 2011 the two highest ranked clubs of the Highland Football League are invited to compete. In June 2011 the cup was named the Ramsdens Cup for sponsorship reasons.

The competition was first held during the 1990–91 season with the winners being Dundee.

The current holders of the trophy are Falkirk, who defeated Hamilton Academical 1–0 in the 2012 final.

    English and Scottish Ballads (The Poetry Bookshelf)

    If the technology cannot shoulder the entire burden of strategic change, it nevertheless can set into motion a series of dynamics that present an important challenge to imperative control and the industrial division of labor. The more blurred the distinction between what workers know and what managers know, the more fragile and pointless any traditional relationships of domination and subordination between them will become.
    Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)

    In poorer lands
    No one touches the water of life.
    It has no taste
    And though it refreshes absolutely
    It is a cup that must also pass
    Until everybody
    Gets some advantage....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
