The JW Hunt Cup is an annual charity football competition for teams based in the West Midlands area of England.

The 2012-13 winners were Black Country Rangers, who beat Wolverhampton Casuals 4–3 on 16 May at the Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton, retaining the cup.[1]

History[edit]

The JW Hunt Cup was formed in 1926 to raise funds for the benefit of the local blind. It is named in memory of John William Hunt, a local businessman, keen supporter of charities and founder of the Chillington Tool Company.

The inaugural winners at the end of the 1926-27 season were Short Heath United, beating Cannon Iron on 14 April 1927 at Molineux.[2] Short Heath United are the joint most successful club in the competition alongside Goodyear F.C, with both clubs having won on four occasions. Other successful clubs in the competition include Richmond Swifts and Great Wyrley.

Charity[edit]

The cup aims to raise money for local blind charities, raising over £292,000 since formation in 1926.[3] On 4 October 2011, the cup committee presented a cheque worth £6000 to the Beacon Centre for the blind.[4]
