The Gloucestershire Cup was a football competition held on 99 occasions from the 1887–88 season until 1996.

It was originally a knockout tournament open to teams in Gloucestershire, but from 1907–08 became an annual match between the first teams of Bristol Rovers and Bristol City.[1]

Creation[edit]

The Gloucestershire cup was created by Charles Lacy-Sweet from Clifton Association F.C. after a meeting in September 1887. Present at the meeting were representatives from Clifton Association, Eastville Rovers (later to become Bristol Rovers), Globe (a team made up of Old Elizabethans), Southville, and church teams St Agnes, St George and St Simon.
