About this document
The Texaco Cup was sponsored by the petrol company and involved the top English, Scottish and Irish (Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland) clubs who hadn't qualified for Europe. Texaco withdrew their sponsorship in 1975 and it was replaced by the Anglo-Scottish Cup.
On two occasions the Irish teams played a separate Texaco Cup.
Finals played over two legs except 1973-74, aggregate score given 1971 Wolverhampton Wanderers 3 Heart Of Midlothian 2 1972 Derby County 2 Airdrieonians 1 1973 Ipswich Town 4 Norwich City 2 1974 Newcastle United 2 Burnley 1 1975 Newcastle United 3 Southampton 1
Following the demise of the Texaco Cup, the Anglo-Scottish Cup was introduced. This had a similar format to its predecessor but involved clubs from England and Scotland only. Over the years English entrants were increasingly drawn from the lower divisions and in 1981 the Scottish clubs withdrew as the public showed little interest in the competition . The competition continued with English clubs only as the Football League Group Cup.
