Rosebery Charity Cup

The success in raising funds for charitable purposes in the West of Scotland of the matches played in Glasgow for the Merchants Charity Cup since the 1876-77 season led to the Edinburgh Football Association approaching Lord Rosebery, a well-known and influential sporting patron, in the hope that a similar competition could be organised for the East of Scotland.  Organised as an end of season competition, the Cup was played for every season, including during war time, from 1882-83 to 1944-45 inclusive, a total of 63 competitions. Heart of Midlothian recorded the most number of wins with 32, Hibernian coming next with 22.  Leith Athletic and St Bernardís both recorded 4 wins with Mossend Swifts winning on the only occasion the trophy went outside the capital city.  Many of the ties, especially in the early years of the competition, were played on neutral grounds.  Even before the outbreak of World War 2 though, the appeal of end of season charity matches had dwindled, although ironically enough the largest crowd recorded for a tie in the competition was the 15,252 who attended the last ever game, the final at Easter Road on 9 May 1945, between Hibernian and Heart of Midlothian, although the size of the crowd might just have been influenced by the euphoria surrounding Germanyís unconditional surrender just two days earlier.
