- FA Amateur Cup
The FA Amateur Cup was an English football competition.
The cup was launched by
The Football Associationin 1893as a response to the domination of the FA Cupby professional teams. At the time, amateur football was still very strong, although not quite as strong as the professional game. It ended in 1974when the FA abolished the distinction between professional and amateur clubs. Two new competitions, the FA Trophyand the FA Vasewere created in its place.
Almost all of the winners over the years were from either the
Isthmian Leaguearound London(29 wins) or the Northern League in North East England(21 wins), with Bishop Auckland the most successful club with 10 wins.
Bill Regan (Romford 1948-49) is believed to have been the first ever American-born individual to play in the FA Amateur Cup final which was itself the first to have been played at Wembley Stadium.
FA Amateur Cup Final results, most recent first, held:-1893-94 to 1914-15, 1919-20 to 1938-39, 1945-46 to 1973-74 (71 seasons).
