Falkirk’s Betfred Cup record over the last 10 years

With the new season upon us and the Betfred Cup games beginning this weekend, we take a look back over the last 10 years to see how the Bairns have fared.

With quarter-final and semi-final appearances and some drubbings too, it’s been a mixed bag for the club over the past decade.

After beating arch rivals Dunfermline 2-1 in the second round,  Falkirk were brought crashing back down to earth by Aberdeen who hammered the Bairns 5-0 with Scott Vernon netting a hat-trick.
