Senior Vase

The Senior Challenge Vase is our second highest ranked competition, formed in 1978 to accommodate the continued growth of football within our region and has ran successfully ever since.

Following a change in FA Regulation ahead of the 2016-17, it became necessary to restructure the Association's Saturday Football Competitions and as such the Step 6 teams who previously competed in this competition now compete in the Senior Cup. Further to this, the teams who currently play in a division which constitutes promotion to Step 7 (i.e. Step 8) have now been allocated to this competition rather than the Challenge Cup.
