history of the cup

A brief history of the Ashtons Legal Junior Cup...

What is the Ashtons Legal Junior Cup?

The Ashtons Legal Junior Cup is the second oldest County Cup that Norfolk FA run, having been established in 1889-90 when Wymondham 2nd XI beat Rudham 2-1. That Wymondham side features prominently in the early years, winning the trophy in four of the first seven seasons.

Who has won the Ashtons Legal Junior Cup?

Over the years the trophy has been lifted by an enormous number of different Clubs, many of whom are sadly no longer in existence. The Cup has also been won by sides who have subsequently moved into senior football, including Gorleston, Fakenham & Wroxham.
