London Minor Cup or London Youth Cup

From - The Chelsea Football Club Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Between 1947/48, when the Chelsea Youth team was formed, and until 1971/72 the club entered the London ‘Youth’ Cup. It would seem that this may have had two different names, but would appear to have been the same competition.
Between 1947/48 and 1962/63, plus the 1969/70 and 1970/71 seasons the competition was called ‘’’The London Minor Cup’’’; however, between 1963/64 and 1968/69, together with the 1971/72 season the competition was called ‘The London Youth Cup’’’.
For ease, I am going to refer to the competition, in both forms, as ‘’’London Youth Cup’’’.
Chelsea were to win the competition on eight occasions, including a hat-trick between 1952/53 and 1954/55. They were also losing finalists on a further five occasions.
Unfortunately little information is known about line-ups up to 1954/55, just a few being known, but here are all of the details known about matches in this competition.
