Wemyss Cup

Senior cup competition open to Fife clubs. The trophy was awarded in December 1897 to the Fifeshire FA by RGE Wemyss, the Unionist candidate at the forthcoming General Election. He also gave a similar one for the juniors, although this competition only lasted a single season. It ran by the Wemyss FA, an organizing body set up by the FFA to oversee the competition. During the early years it was seen as one of the more important local competitions, but as the various clubs looked beyond their borders and joined other national and regional groups, it gradually lost its importance. After WWII the Wemyss Cup competition was discontinued and the FFA concentrated on the Fifeshire Cup.

Generally organized as a knockout competition, it was, for a number of seasons (1905-06 and 1907-1913), ran on league lines (the Wemyss League).
