Summer Cup 1941-1945

 

Because running costs for First Division clubs were getting higher, it was decided to bring back the Summer Cup, a tournament that hadn’t been played for since 1945. Celtic and Rangers declined to take part in either of the two seasons it was played, while Morton who ran way with the 1963-64 Second Division championship replaced East Stirlingshire.
