Renfrewshire Victoria Cup

 

The Victoria Cup was first played for in 1897 between the minor county clubs.
As clubs began to disappear from the senior game, several top clubs began to enter the competition and Saints first competed in 1910/11.

They fell at the first hurdle during that debut campaign, but it was to be just two years till they got their hands on the trophy, defeating Arthurlie in 1912-13.

They won the competition a further two times in 1925/26 and 1928/29.

 

As the years passed, the top senior sides fell away from the competition and it became an amateur competition.

Today it is competed for by just four clubs, Carlton YMCA, Gourock Thistle, Moorcroft and Viewfield Rovers.

The two finalists qualify for the Renfrewshire Cup and a game with either Morton or St Mirren in the semi final.
