Essex lift Lord’s Taverners ECB trophy again
For the second time in three years, Essex won the County Championship after securing a draw at title rivals Somerset on the last day of the 2019 season.
This was the eighth occasion that Essex have lifted the Lord’s Taverners ECB trophy and it capped off a special week for the county as they became the first club to win the championship and the T20 Blast in the same season.
Details for the presentation of these trophy’s by representatives of the Lord’s Taverners and Lady Taverners will be confirmed in the New Year.
The Lord's Taverners ECB Trophy is the official name of the silverware awarded to the winners of the men's County Championship, while the women's One-Day champions receive the Lady Taverners ECB Trophy. This will be the 47th year that the county champions have enjoyed a reception with the Lord's Taverners since the trophy was introduced for the first time by the charity's Patron and Twelfth Man, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh in 1973.
