This will be the 95th time the Trophy has been competed for after the competition started way back in 1905. It has been contested every year since, except during the period of 1940-1945. The first ever winners of this competition, which was known as the Shield back then, were London Schools who overcame Sheffield Schools 3-2, with two goals from Hope and one from Holloway.
The original Shield was replaced by the Trophy in 1937-38. The last winners of the Shield were Liverpool Schools in 1936-37 after beating Blyth 1-0 with a goal from McDonald infront of 11,000 at Croft Park, Blyth.
