County Championship Trophy Presentations
The Lord’s Taverners ECB Trophy is the official name of the silverware awarded to the winners of the men’s County Championship, and the women’s One-Day champions receive the Lady Taverners ECB Trophy.
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.
He realised that until that time, the champions had never received a physical trophy so decided to introduce one. Hampshire were the winners on that occasion in 1973 and a reception has taken place for every county champion since.
Watch below as 2019 men’s champions Essex and 2019 women’s champions Kent received their trophies and medals at a ceremony at the House of Lord’s.
