The third in the club’s history and the first for 28 years, St.Mirren’s Scottish Cup win of 1987 brought a stirring conclusion to a season that had been a modest one in League terms. That Cup run gradually gathered momentum as victories over Caledonian FC, Greenock Morton, Raith Rovers and Hearts took the Buddies all the way to the Final.
Dundee United were their Hampden opponents and a goal in extra time by Ian Ferguson settled a closely fought match. That winning St. Mirren team retains the distinction of being the last to win the Cup fielding an all-Scottish line-up.
The very next day the squad travelled to Singapore to compete in a four team invitational tournament and draws against Universidad Autonoma and Southampton and victory over Perth Azzurri took Saints into another Final. Just 11 days after their Scottish Cup success, St.Mirren were lifting silverware once again thanks to a penalty shoot-out victory.
