East Fife and Berwick Rangers have met regularly on League and League Cup business since the first league match between the sides in 1958. For the first Scottish Cup encounter between East Fife and Berwick we must go back to January 1923 when East Fife beat their non-league opponents 7-1 in front of a 3,500 crowd at Bayview. This was not, however, the first ever meeting between the sides. On 20 February 1909 East Fife made the long trip south to play Berwick in the fourth round of the Consolation Cup. The match finished 2-2 and the following Saturday East Fife won the replay at Bayview by one goal to nil. The home side were rather disappointed that the gate receipts for the replayed match had amounted to only 30. The reason for the poor takings was put down to "the absence of a couple of stretches of wire and two policemen"!
