Barclay Cup

This competition was open to East Fife junior clubs. The first competition in season 1938-39, over-ran, and by the time the finalists were determined, the war had put a halt to football and It appears that the final was never played. The draw for the 1939-40 competition was made in early August, but like similar East Fife cups, this edition was also abandoned.
