1936 National Soccer League

After eleven years of trying the Atholstan Cup finally returned to Montreal. Carsteel beat Ulster 6-3 on total goals over the two finals to win their first Atholstan Trophy since 1925.

This was a time that saw a revival in the investments various companies made in sports. For an example British Consols and Falconbridge Falcons not only ran soccer teams but also had hockey teams. Indeed when Red Earley was transferred from the Falcons to the Consolmen in September 1936 this had as much to do with his abilities as a hockey player as well as soccer.

Hamilton Thistles won the Western Division title, the first Hamilton team to do so.
