Summer Cup

Biggest Win: 5 - 1 vs. St Johnstone (A) on May 15th, 1965

Total Players Used: 32

When the competition was first introduced in 1940 it was organized by the war-time Southern League. It was one of two cup competitions run by the Southern League, along with the Southern League Cup. The competition ran from May to June when the league season had already finished. United's involvement began when the Summer Cup was reintroduced in 1963 as a national cup competition for Scottish Football League Division One clubs. Running costs for clubs in the top division had grown increasingly expensive and the idea of a localised cup competition in the summer months was proposed. Both Celtic and Rangers declined to take part in either season the competition was played, leaving the trophy open largely to teams outside the Central belt. Most notably, United reached the final of the 1965 competition, losing out to Motherwell over two legs. This was also the last year the competition ran.
