Dundee Charity Cup

In 1892, the formation of the Dundee Charity FA took over responsibility of the Burns Charity Cup from the Forfarshire FA and this saw a new trophy in the shape of a shield being awarded. The Burns Cup trophy was then mothballed before being awarded to the juniors for their charity competition. In 1897 the first non-city clubs entered and the title of the tournament was altered to the Dundee & District Charity Cup. Only a few years later the competition was scrapped.
