The London FA had three senior cups being the London Challenge Cup, the London Senior Amateur Cup (known also as the London Amateur Cup) and the London Charity Cup. The only time a club reached the final of all three competitions in the same season was 1959–60. Tooting & Mitcham won the London Senior Amateur Cup beating Bromley 5–0 in the final played at The Den (home of Millwall). Tooting & Mitcham were losing finalists in the other two competitions after being beaten 2–1 by Barnet in the final of the London Charity Cup and 2–1 by Chelsea in the final of the London Challenge Cup. both finals were played on the winning side's home ground. The original trophy was donated by the Rt. Hon. Reginald Harrison.

Former winners include Cheshunt (1973–74), Wimbledon (1935–36; 1949–50; 1951–52), among others. The competition was discontinued in 1975.
