This period was marked by a lack of interest in the trophy. The main competition was not held in either the 1962-63 season or the 1964-65 season. In two seasons of this period, the trophy was shared after the final failed to reach a conclusion. The Senior 'A' Cup was only played for once in this timeframe, Gainsborough Trinity defeating Boston United 2-1 in a replay on 15 April 1964.
