F W Burgess Challenge Cup

In 1961 this became the first Cup Competition which the Club entered.

This cup was given by the Burgess family (of Burgess Bakery) for competition by clubs in the Borough of Newcastle. It was run as a handicap competition and was initially administered by the Borough Council but, shortly after their formation, the Newcastle League took on this role.

From 2002, only clubs playing in the Newcastle League Division 1 were able to enter the Burgess Cup and the competition ceased to be an open event for teams in the Borough.
