Unimportant Cup Competitions

With the Asia Trophy coming up, I was wondering how many strange cup competitions/friendlies we have entered over the years.

One that stands out was the Philips Cup in 2003 against PSV.

Anyone have any recollections of any other unimportant cup competitions through the years?

I think we've played in all of these minor competitions:

Southern Professional Floodlit Cup
Anglo-Italian Cup
Texaco Cup
Football League Group Cup
Mercantile Credit Centenary Festival
Third Division South Cup
Full Members Cup (Zenith Data Systems etc.)

But sadly never qualified for or accepted invites to such greats as:

Debenhams Cup
Watney Cup
Anglo-Scottish Cup
Anglo-Franco-Scottish Friendship Cup
Anglo-Italian League Cup
Mercantile Credit Centenary Trophy
Football League Supercup

Nice one WE. Just looked a few of them up. Cheers for the info.

Never knew about the Texaco Cup, Football League Group cup or the Southern Professional Floodlit Cup.

I guess the Surrey Cup should get an honourable mention too.

There was also a London 6-a-side in the 1970s Televised, I think. Have a picture in my mind of John Sewell panting away

There were London 6-a-sides around 1993-95. The weird thing was that despite it being a London tournament and all London teams were present no London side ever won it - Wycombe and Watford split the trophy wins IIRC

We were in a four team tournament in summer 1990. Palace, Sampdoria, Fiorentina and one other Serie A team.

Lost 2-1 to Fiorentina and then beat Sampdoria on penalties to claim 3rd place.

Always remember Capital Radio the next day describing the game as one of Palace's 'most famous wins'

WTF!? We won a FRIENDLY on penalties and that was one of our most famous wins!!?? (Christ, we were barely 100 days past beating Liverpool 4-3 not quite sure this was in the same class as that!!)

Recall us taking part in a pre season tournament circa mid 70s alongside Charlton, Millwall and Gillingham. Was played on a group basis (I think) and was called something along the lines of The Kent Challenge Cup/Trophy?

Kent Cup played August 1975.
Lost at home to Charlton 0-1 then drew away at Gillingham and Millwall, both 1-1 draws. Did not qualify for further progress.

We entered Quiz Ball one year and did quite well. Similar to Quesion of Sport. Remember vaguely Gerry Queen and Jacko being pretty good. I was at the age where I was absolutely gutted when we got beaten. My father just laughed and told me that Gerry Queen had told him a month previously that they had lost.

Route One David..... I think it was David Vine...... There were four routes to goal:
4 easy questions,
3 medium questions,
2 difficult questions
and 1 hard question.
You could be tackled if you took the easy route the other team were allowed to buzz in usually on the last question.
The team the other two I am struggling with, and one might of been a guest not a player. Anyway as you were was gutted we lost even more so I think we were robbed , it was a question on name a spacecraft they wanted something like Apollo 11 we gave the name it was known as when flying Columbia....sure the FA fixed it.
I dont recall who we lost too either....might of been Arsenal

Your getting old......

Don't know if you've already dug this up Ian but here goes.

Quiz Ball refereed by David Vine (later Stuart Hall)

After winning the opening kick off question the player chose a route to goal and answered the questions. The opposing team had one chance to tackle the player going to goal by pressing a buzzer prior to the player answering their last question.If they get it right they've won possession but if it was wrong the challenge was unsuccessful and a goal is scored. The route one question was not subject to a tackle.

Quiz ball started in 66-67 and finished in 71-72. Their was no series in 68-69 and two in 70.

66-67 Palace never entered. Arsenal beat Dumferline 7-3 in final. Two of our most lovable ex- managers Mullery and Vegtables represented Spurs.

67-68 No Palace entry. Gerry Queen played for Kilmarnock and Willie Wallace Celtic. Alan Leather ( did he become our secretary ??? ) was on the Coventry team , he was their secretary. West Brom beat Forest 2-1 in final.

69-70. lost in the first round 2-1 to West Brom. Queen scoring for us and Osborne getting two for W.B.A.
Palace team. Jackson - Queen - Pinkney- and guest Alfie Bass.
Celtic and Hearts competed for final.

1970 no Palace entry. Celtic beat Everton in final. Charlie Cooke in Chelsea team.

1970-71 Palace beat Blackpool 3-2 in first round. team Bert Head - Jacko- Queen- guest Richard Wattis.

semi final we beat Leeds after extra time. team John Sewell replaced Bert Head.
final . lost to Derby 2-4 team John Sewell - John McCormick - John Jackson and Richard Wattis.

71-72 no palace entry. Dumferline won, and big Roger Hynd competed for Birmingham City.


I can only say by 1970/71 I had discovered girls and beer because I have no recollection of making the Final but digging around Google Richard Wattis scored both our goals in the final.
