The 1955 Scottish League Cup Final was played on 22 October 1955, at Hampden Park in Glasgow and was the final of the 10th Scottish League Cup competition. The final was contested by Aberdeen and St. Mirren. Aberdeen won the match 2–1, thanks to a goal by Graham Leggat and an own goal by Jim Mallan.[1] The winning goal, scored 11 minutes from the end, was a "wind-assisted cross".[1] Aberdeen manager Davie Shaw later admitted that they had been "damn lucky" to win the Cup.[1] The match proved to be St. Mirren's last appearance in a Scottish League Cup Final until 2010.[1]
