Greenock & District Charity Cup

Entry to the Greenock & District Charity Cup was as usual by invitation only, and the competition also attracted strong clubs from outwith the area including Dumbarton and St Mirren. Port-Glasgow Athletic only entered twice, in 1884-85 and 1887-88, as they appeared to fall out with the organisers. Morton won the last Senior competition in 1894, although the tournament lasted through the rest of the 1890s amongst the Junior clubs.
