Texaco Cup

After Texaco had decided to withdraw their sponsorship of the International League Board competition (aka the Texaco Cup) , the Management Committees of the English and Scottish Leagues decided that the tournament should continue as the Anglo-Scottish Cup. The same format was used, that is only clubs not qualifying for European competitions could be entered as well as the highest scoring clubs from the lower divisions. Again as with the Texaco Cup, the English sides dominated, winning all bar one of the competitions. St Mirren were the only Scottish success, but in 1981, the Scottish League decided to withdraw from the tournament as it was felt that the bigger English sides were snubbing it.
