Challenge Cup

The Challenge Cup is our second oldest competition, formed 14 years after the Senior Challenge Cup in 1895 to accommodate the continued growth of football within our region. It served as the second level of competition within the County until 1978 when the Vase Competition was introduced, and has remained the third level of competition ever since. In 2012, the competition increased in size following the disbanding of the lower ranked Presidents Cup.
