Partick Thistle had two goalless draws with Hibernian - the first at Easter Road and the second at Firhill in front of 25,000 fans, before a single goal from MacFarlane, who played no part in the final, saw off the Hibs in the 2nd replay. The second replay on Tuesday 21 February 1921 at Parkhead, Glasgow had an attendance of over 20,000 on a wet and stormy day. MacFarlane's second half goal was a header scored from a free-kick. Shortly afterwards the centre forward had a penalty saved by Hibs goalie Harper.
Partick Thistle beat East Stirlingshire 2-0 with Jimmy Kinloch scoring both goals.

The match was dubbed the 'Boycott Final' after the Scottish Football Association raised the admission price from one shilling to two shillings. It was also played in the midst of a miners' strike.
