Note of Interest: Yonkers FC was listed as being the “present cup holder”!

This is because the Dewar Cup had been originally created in 1913 for a different tournament, the A.A.F.A. Cup Tie Competition (which was only held that one year). Yonkers FC won that tournament, but those games are not officially counted as part of U.S. Open Cup history.
