Stirling Charity Cup

Charity invitation competition originally for senior clubs in Stirling and district.
The Stirling Charity Cup was regularly competed for in the late 19th century, but fell from the calendar in 1898. It was revived in the 1920s. However by this time the original trophy had been donated to the local amateur FA so there had been no specific cup awarded to the winners of the annual match, with any cup to hand being used for the presentation, and then being returned to the owners.
