Summer Cup

This competition was organized by the Southern League and ran from when the league season finished at the end of May until July. Unlike the other war-time competitions, no club won it more than once.
 
Winners
1940-41 Hibernian
1941-42 Rangers
1942-43 St Mirren
1943-44 Motherwell
1944-45 Partick Thistle
 
Because running costs for First Division clubs were getting higher in the 1960s, it was decided to bring back the Summer Cup. Celtic and Rangers declined to take part in either of the two seasons it was played, while Morton who ran way with the 1963-64 Second Division championship replaced East Stirlingshire.
 
Winners
1963-64 Hibernian
1964-65 Motherwell
