The Liverpool County Football Association Senior Cup, commonly known as the Liverpool Senior Cup, is a football knockout tournament involving teams from the city of Liverpool, England and surrounding areas.
It is the County Cup competition of the Liverpool County Football Association and involves non-league clubs as well as the three professional teams in Merseyside: Everton, Liverpool and Tranmere Rovers. However, while non-league clubs often field their first team in the competition, the professional clubs generally field their reserve teams.
The first Liverpool Senior Cup was played for in 1882-83, with Bootle F.C. becoming the inaugural winners, and the competition has taken place most seasons since then. The final of the 1892-1893 competition was the occasion of the first ever Merseyside derby- Liverpool won the game 1-0.
