There have been many long standing trophies at Orkney. In 1940, the first Pollak Cup was played for by two teams form Western Reefs gold mine. It was actually first played for at Pollak Park before it was moved to Orkney. The trophy is still played for every year, as are the Directors and Haggard cups, which also date from the early forties.
