Website MCCA Knockout Trophy

The Minor Counties Cricket Association Knockout Cup was started in 1983 as a knockout one-day competition for the Minor Counties in English cricket. At first it was known as the English Industrial Estates Cup, before being called the Minor Counties Knock Out Competition from 1986 to 1987, the Holt Cup from 1988 to 1992, the MCC Trophy from 1993 to 1998, the ECB 38-County Cup from 1999 to 2002, the MCCA Knockout Trophy from 2003 to 2005. It has been called the MCCA Trophy since 2006.

From 1998 to 2002, the competition was contested by 38 teams. The traditional Minor counties, plus Huntingdonshire and the "cricket boards" of the 18 first-class counties, as well as a Channel Islands team. The 2002 competition, which was won by the Warwickshire Cricket Board, remains the only time a non-Minor county has won the competition. This format was discontinued after 2002 and the competition is again a purely Minor counties affair.

The most successful county is Norfolk, who have won the competition 5 times. The current champion is Berkshire who defeated Shropshire in the 2013 final by 128 runs at Wormsley Park, Ibstone.
