Cumbria Shield

The Cumbria Shield is an annual rugby union knock-out club competition organized by the Cumbria Rugby Union. It was introduced during the 1888-89 season, when it was known as the Cumberland Challenge Shield, the inaugural winners were Millom, it was open only to junior club sides in Cumberland but in 1974, as a result of the 1972 Local Government Act, Cumberland and Furness merged to form what we now know as Cumbria, the competition would be renamed as the Cumbria Shield. It is the third most important cup competition in Cumbria, behind the Cumbria Cup and Cumbria League Cup; the Shield was a knock-out cup played by the 1st teams of junior clubs, along with the 2nd teams of senior clubs, before becoming a 2nd team competition. In years the format switched back and forth between a knock-out cup and league cup-hybrid, but has most switched to being awarded to the winners of the Cumbria Shield League - a regional league for 2nd and 3rd teams in Cumbria. A secondary competition known as the Cumbria Vase was introduced in 2007 for sides knocked out of the early rounds of the Shield competition, although in recent years it seems to have become a stand-alone cup competition for 2nd teams in the region.
