Paisley Charity Cup

The Paisley Charity Cup was first competed for in 1882-83, when St.Mirren reached the final only to lose 0-6 to Paisley Athletic.

By the turn of the century, St.Mirren and Abercorn were the only senior clubs remaining in the town, so Arthurlie and Johnstone were invited to compete in the competition. The late 1890s saw the competition in abeyance although it was played for on 1900-01 by Junior clubs and between 1908 and 1911 it was competed as a 5-a-side tournament. With the demise of Abercorn in 1920, it was decided that the competition should be played as a one off match between St Mirren and invited opposition. Over the years teams such as Third Lanark, Clyde, Partick Thistle, Morton, Kilmarnock and East Fife along with English teams like Manchester City, Leicester City, Barnsley and Preston North End have provided the opposition.

The final year of competition was in 1967 and the trophy now resides in the St Mirren's boardroom.
