South Western Counties Cup

In 1932 the Football Associations of Renfrewshire and Ayrshire got together to formulate a four team competition involving St.Mirren, Morton, Kilmarnock and Ayr United.
It was to take the form of a semi final and then a final. 

 Semi Final

St Mirren 2 Kilmarnock 0
Knox2                               

 Final

St Mirren 7 Ayr United 1
McCrae3, Knox2,                     
               Rankin, Miller.
                             

Saints played the same team for both matches: -

Fotheringham, Baird, Hay, Gebbie, Walker, Miller, Knox, Workman, McCrae, Rankin and Farmer

The score line in the final suggests that it was a very poor Ayr team but, newspaper reports of the day give credit to saints for an outstanding performance that Ayr could not match.

Following a year off in 1932-33 the competition resumed in 1933-34, however Saints withdrew shortly before they were due to play Ayr United.

The following year they did enter but were defeated in the semi final by Kilmarnock.
This match doubled up as a benefit match for Saints defender John Miller.

In season 1935-36 they defeated Ayr United 4-2, before going down 5-4 on aggregate to Morton in the final.

This was to be the last year of the competition.
