History

The Manchester Premier Cup, then known as the Manchester County FA Shield, was first competed for in the 1934-35 season, when Manchester North End beat Hurst 5-2, in the final to become the inaugural champions[1] 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. After World War II it became known as the Manchester Premier Cup.[citation needed]

The clubs that have won the Manchester Premier Cup the most times are:

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.

The 2011 winners were Droylsden F.C. who beat Ashton United F.C. by four goals to three after extra time in one of the best finals of recent years. The underdogs from Ashton were handed a major blow below when The Manchester FA gave Droylsden clearance to play four players who were ineligible under normal tournament rules. Former Ashton player Ciaran Kilheeney gave Droylsden an early lead but Ashton hit back to equalise almost immediately through Matty O' Neill. In the second half Kilheeney completed a hat-trick with a penalty and a header before a storming fightback from Ashton saw goals from Craig Robinson and Jonathon Bathurst level things up. Extra time saw both teams create chances but a second penalty to Droylsden proved decisive with ace marksman Kilheeney winning the tie.
