The Glasgow Cup was a local Cup Competition with entrants taken from members of the Glasgow FA.   

Queen's won the competition just four times, twice in the first three years of its existence, 1889 and 1890, then again in 1899, and finally in 1945, whilst finishing runners-up a further seven times.

Perhaps our finest result in the competition came in 1922/23 when Queen's, then in the Second Division, were drawn against Celtic and a hat-trick from J.B. McAlpine saw Queen's home by four goals to three.

Queen's last win in the competition came in 1945/46, when, in one of the few finals not to feature either Celtic or Rangers, Queen's beat Clyde by two goal to nil after seeing off Partick Thistle in the Semi Finals after a replay.   

Our last appearance in the final came in 1984/85, with the final held over until September 1985, but Queen's lost heavily, conceding five goals to Rangers without troubling the scorers themselves.    

The last senior competition was played in 1988/89,with Queen's first team bowing out of the competition with a single goal defeat to Partick Thistle. After a few seasons being played as an Under 18 competition, it is now played as a league, with each team's Under 17 side facing the others home and away, with the top two in the league meeting in the final.
