History

Partick moved to Meadowside from Inchview Park in 1891. The ground was slowly developed and eventually included of a 750-seat grandstand on the northern side of the pitch and a running track around it. In 1893 Partick became founder members of Scottish Football League Division Two, and the first SFL match was played at Meadowside on 26 August 1893, with Abercorn winning 3–0. On 16 December 1899 the ground was used by Rangers for a home match against St Mirren as their new Ibrox Stadium was not ready.

The ground's probable record attendance of 16,000 was set for a Scottish Cup first round replay against Hibernian on 4 February 1905, with Partick winning 4–2. Another crowd of 16,000 attended a Glasgow Cup first round match against Celtic on 8 September 1906. The highest league attendance at Meadowside was 11,000 for a 4–1 loss to Rangers on 3 January 1905.

In 1908 the site was bought in order to expand the neighbouring shipyard, and Partick were forced to move out. Their final league match at the ground was played on 30 April 1908, a 1–1 draw with Hibernian. However, their new Firhill Park ground was not ready and Partick spent the 1908–09 season and the first few matches of the 1909–10 season playing at other grounds, including Rugby Park in Kilmarnock, Celtic Park, Hampden Park, Ibrox and Shawfield in Glasgow, Pittodrie in Aberdeen, Clune Park in Port Glasgow, Easter Road in Edinburgh and Cappielow in Greenock. The first match at Firhill was played on 2 October 1909.
