Erskine Hospital Charity Cup

Recommended Posts

Just had a request from the Maryhill Burgh Halls about the Erskine Hospital Charity Cup which they have in their possession. They are looking for information about it's origin etc. I know it was played for by various junior sides up until the 90's. I know their has been a forum on this a few years ago but any new information would be helpful.Erskine%20Charity%20Cup.jpeg

Pretty sure Pollok won this in circa 1960 played at Yoker , Tommy Dryden possibly was Manager, they played 2 finals on same day at the end of a season. Maybe Pollok,s jamie Wire can confirm.

The winners of the Erskine Cup would play the winners of the Maryhill Charity Cup for the McGregor Cup.  After winning the 1991 Erskine Cup, we won the 1991 McGregor Cup beating Maryhill 4-3 at Tinto Park.

Here we were after the 1991 and 1994 win, the last one.

According to this https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjkn7Dlw_vkAhVPUBUIHcHOBGkQFjACegQIAxAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.rangers-mad.co.uk%2Fshowthread.php%3F962909-The-Erskine-Hospital-Cup&usg=AOvVaw2VzL_HVDXssEL8N4x8ks6Y 

the trophy was at the hospital in 2013 when it was borrowed by a Rangers supporters group  for a tournament they were organising.

Still no answer how it ended up at Maryhill.

I think it was the David Elder Hospital Cup first. The Erskine Cup was played at the end of the season  I seen Benburb win 2 nil against Clydebank in 1962 at Tinto Park in a final. Jim McDonald scored both goals. In the pre penalty shootout days the games were decided on corners if the teams were level.
