Aberdeenshire Charity Cups

Page created: 5 June 2020

Updated: 20 August 2020

 

The Aberdeen Charity Cup was instituted in 1888 and open to the city's clubs. It was renamed the Aberdeenshire Charity Cup in 1893 after Peterhead and Fraserburgh entered. This was replaced in 1900 as the principal charity competition by the Lord Provost Sir John Fleming Charity Shield. The Aberdeenshire Charity Cup was resuscitated in 1908 by the area's non-league clubs. Both competitions fell out of favour in the late 1920s but the Shield trophy was re-used much later, from 1990, and awarded to the winners of the Aberdeenshire Shield competition.
