Sierra Leone 1962

National FA Cup

For the first time, a national FA Cup competition was held in 1962.  The trophy was donated by the Governor-General,
Sir Henry Lightfoot Boston.  The format was that one team from each of the four regions of Sierra Leone would
qualify for national semi-finals; the three Provinces each held inter-district knockout matches, while in the
Western Area the top eight clubs from Division 1 played knockout matches.  In this sense the competition was a
hybrid comprised of clubs (Western Area) and district representative teams (Provinces).
