About The Young Trophy
The event was first held in 1933 when a joint team from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers challenged The Institute of Electric and Electronic Engineers (now part of the IET) to “show their worth and prove their skill at the noble game of cricket and other manly sports. ” The gauntlet had been thrown and battle commenced on 1st July 1933, with the IEE eventually proving victorious.

Mr Young, Vice President of the IEE, was so impressed by the sporting spirit displayed on that occasion that he presented a trophy to be competed for annually by all three Institutions. This trophy was called The ‘Young Trophy’ in his honour.
