Season 1898/99

Queen's Park's first competitive matches of season 1898/99 came, as usual, in the Glasgow Cup. After wins over Partick Thistle and Third Lanark, Queen's once again had to face Rangers in the final of the competition. Despite a brave effort, the Spiders suffered a 1-0 defeat at Cathkin Park. In the Scottish Cup, Queen's Park had comfortable victories in the first two rounds before going down 2-1 to Celtic in the semi-finals. The Parkhead side also put an end to the Spiders' Glasgow Charity Cup hopes at the end of the season.

The Glasgow League had been enlarged to include Partick Thistle. Queen's Park finished in third place with four wins, two draws and four defeats.

Queen's Park received a request to play for the Sheriff of London Charity Shield, the predecessor of the modern-day FA Community Shield. The match was normally contested between the leading English amateur club and the leading English professional club. On this occasion, however, Queen's Park were invited to face English league champions Aston Villa. The match at Crystal Palace ended in a scoreless draw. Aston Villa held the trophy for the first six months and Queen's Park for the following six months.

Although not all the results are available, it is known that the Queen's Park Strollers finished in fourth place in the Scottish Combination.
