War Fund Shield

Page created: 19 July 2020



Two war-time competitions to help raise funds for footballers and their families who fought in the Great War, the entrants being all Scottish League clubs. For the latter competition, no trophy was awarded as it wasn't ready. It was intended to be an annual tournament, but the war ended later that year.
