When the FraserValley Soccer League was officially formed the same year, Port Coquitlam refused to switch over to the Valley League.
When the Valley asked for the Cup to be returned for the 1966 competition, Port Coquitlam hid the Cup and rumored that the Pakenham, along with the Bradner Cup, had been stolen by vandals from the trophy case at the Commercial Hotel.
When the Valley League insisted on a replacement, Don March, who headed a second Port Coquitlam team in the Valley League, purchased a substitute cup which was presented annually for the next six years, 1966 to 1971, in place of the original Pakenham Cup.
