Initially subscribed by a number of gentlemen on 21 February 1885, the special objective to raise funds for the local hospital. The early competitions were played as tournaments (preliminary rounds and a final), but by 1914 the cup was reduced to a play off between two clubs, initially Ayr United and Queen's Park, latterly Ayr United and Kilmarnock.
