The Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup in the 19th Century

 April 1877
The Sheffield Football Association

The Sheffield Football Association was founded in 1867, but until 1877 the clubs played the Sheffield Rules variant of the game. In 1877 Sheffield adopted the Association rules, or rather the last differences were ironed out, the FA having already adopted several Sheffield innovations and reciprocal compromises having being reached (after the use of hands and touchdowns had disappeared from both sets of rules, offsides and throw ins had been the main sticking point).


The clubs of the Sheffield F.A. of 1877 were: 
Albion

Artillery and Hallamshire Rifles
Attercliffe
Brightside
Brincliffe
Broomhall
Crookes
Exchange
 Exchange Brewery
Fir Vale
Gleadless
Hallam
Heeley
Kimberworth
Millhouses
Norfolk
Norfolk Works
Owlerton

On March 19th 1877 Hyde Park Sheffield hosted a tournament for 'non association' clubs. The teams  played for a prize of 3 footballs. The donor of the prize was unknown, but the local press carried reassurances that there was no move afoot to start a rival association.  
The teams taking part were:  

       Talbot Street,

   Attercliffe Zion,  Huttons Wanderers,  Perseverence*,  Alliance*, and Adalene.

* later members of the New Association.

Sheffield New Association

In 1877 a rival association given the name Sheffield New Association was established in protest at the Sheffield FA's decision not to allow any club under two years old to become a member.

The original members of the New Association were:


Alliance
Buckingham
  Friends
Nether
Newfield
Owlerton Broughton
Park Friendly
Park Wanderers
Perseverence
Pye Bank
Rising Star
St Jude’s
St Phillip’s
Saxons
Sheaf United

In 1883 the New Association changed its name to The Hallamshire Football Association
