3. Dundee Harp 35-0 Aberdeen Rovers (1885)
Dundee Harp’s most notable result was a 35–0 victory against Aberdeen Rovers in a game played on 12 September 1885. Remarkably, this occurred on the same day that Arbroath beat Bon Accord 36–0, the second-largest margin of victory in senior football history.
Although the referee in the Harp-Aberdeen Rovers game had noted 37 goals, Harp’s secretary suggested a miscount must have occurred as he had recorded only 35. The match official, acknowledging that it was difficult for him to keep accurate details during such a deluge of goals, accepted the lower tally and wired the official score of 35–0 to the Scottish Football Association (SFA) headquarters
2. Arbroath 36-0 Bon Accord (1885)
