Charity Cup

Guest Postie Pidge

The "Durning Lawrence Cornwall Charity Cup" was donated to the CCFA by Mr Durning Lawrence of Truro City FC.

It was agreed that teams would participate for it and in the latter years ir was on an invitation basis (usually 16 SWL and for a time 15 SWL and one from the ECPL and CCL on a rotation).

I think you'll find it was first played for in 1906 - Torpoint Athletic beating Truro City 3-1. In fact between that one and the last one before the Great War interrupted the competition, these two clubs dominated a little:-

1906 Torpoint Athletic 3-1 Truro City

1907 Newquay 4-1 Looe

1908 St Austell 3-1 Newquay (after 0-0 draw)

1909 Newquay 3-2 Liskeard Athletic

1910 Torpoint Athletic 3-2 Truro City

1911 Torpoint Athletic 2-0 Truro City

1912 Truro City 1-0 Torpoint Athletic

1913 Truro City 0-0 St Austell (Trophy shared)

1914 St Austell 4-1 Truro City

The next one then was in 1920 when Truro City beat Looe 2-1 after first drawing 1-1.

Dave that's really helpful thanks.

Needed the info for Dobwalls programme as it will be the first time they have appeared in the Charity Cup on Saturday.

Quite interesting to see Looe figure a couple of times in the first years of the competition.

Looe's purple patch in this competition was in the 1920's - three times winners and three times runners-up!

1923 Looe 10-0 Porthleven

1924 Looe 3-0 Flushing

1925 Looe 2-1 Truro City (after 1-1 draw)

1920 Truro City 2-1 Looe (after 1-1 draw)

1929 Truro City 3-1 Looe

1930 Truro City 1-0 Looe

also two other occasions in the final for Looe

1954 Newquay 6-2 Looe

1972 St Austell 4-1 Looe

By the way the 10-0 scoreline above is the biggest winning margin in a final - who are you playing Saturday? :D
