Southern Counties FA Alba Cup 18-19

The Southern Counties FA Alba Cup is contested by the ten clubs in the Southern Counties FA who are not full members of the Scottish Football Association.

Now in its third season, it is similar to the established Alex Jack Cup operated by the East of Scotland FA.  The winners play off for a Scottish Cup place against the Alex Jack Cup winners in the South & East Cup Winners Shield. The format is straight knockout.

Mid Annandale won the cup last season but were defeated by Tynecastle in the Shield match.
