Liverpool Senior Cup

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.

Competition history[edit]

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.

The Cup was suspended during most of the First World War, but continued during the Second World War, largely in the form of exhibition matches between Liverpool and Everton wartime teams.
