Notes When it became clear that Queen's Park FC would have to move from the original Hampden Park, an approach was made to the landowner to see if they were willing to let the club have this land. He was willing to rent his land, at a cost to the club 100 per annum with a five year lease, but Queen's were canny negotiators and reduced the rent for the first two years to 80. Not only that, but the railway company who were the cause of their moving would pay for drainage and levelling of Queen's new pitch, while the landlord would pay for the turfing of the pitch.  In 1889 Queen's secured a second five year lease, and a further five year extension in 1894, although by now the rent was 150 per annum.  Further attempts were made by the club to buy the ground outright, but these were futile and the another search began for a piece of land the club could purchase and own outright. The search was of course successful, but it would be some time before it was ready.   Eventually it was time to move on, and the last game at the second Hampden was a 1 - 1 draw with Partick Thistle on 17/10/1903, a fortnight before the new stadium was opened.  After Queen's departed the second Hampden Park, the ground was taken over by Third Lanark, who had been playing at a ground about five hundred yards further south on Cathcart Road. Unfortunately no agreement could be reached between Queen's and Third Lanark regarding the pavilion, and it was removed by Queen's. The second Hampden was renamed Cathkin Park, and was used by Thirds until their demise in 1967. There has been virtually no development of the ground since then, and a public football pitch still occupies the ground. Indeed visitors to Cathkin today can still see large sections of terracing complete with barriers that have stood empty for over 35 years.   QPFC.com
