Wemyss Junior Cup

The trophy was awarded in December 1897 to the Fife junior clubs by RGE Wemyss, the Unionist candidate at the forthcoming General Election. He also gave a similar one for the seniors, and although the latter competition ran until 1939, the junior version only lasted only a single season.
