The Manchester Premier Cup (also known as the Robinsons Brewery Premier Cup for sponsorship reasons) is an annual English football knockout tournament involving teams from Greater Manchester, England. It is a County Cup competition of the Manchester Football Association and involves Non-league football clubs, although at least one Football League club has entered the competition.

Trafford are the current holders, after defeating Hyde 4–2 on penalties after a 2–2 draw after regulation to win the Cup for the first time.[1]

History[edit]

The Manchester Premier Cup, originally known as the Manchester County FA Shield,[2] was first competed for in the 1934–35 season, when Manchester North End beat Hurst[a] 5–2, in the final to become the inaugural champions at their Charles Street Ground in Blackley in front of crowd of 2,400. The gate receipts of £59 were distributed 50% to the FA and 25% to each of the finalists.[citation needed] For the 1955–56 season the name was changed to the Manchester Intermediate Cup and was again changed for the 1979–80 season to the present name.[3]

The Competition has been dominated by the teams in the Tameside borough of Manchester who together have won the contest 55 times. Central Manchester teams have won it 5 times, teams from Bury winning 4 times and Salford and Wigan twice. A team from outside the Greater Manchester Borders has only ever won the trophy Once.
