Each year the County runs an Invitation Event in the following categories:

  • Lillian Rymill Cup (Junior Girls) - started year 2000;
  • Keith Jackson Cup (Cadet Boys) - started year 2002;

  • Seaman Cup (Senior Men) - started year 1959;
  • Nicholls Cup (Senior Women) - started year 1960;

The full list can be seen in the report below. As can be seen there are some gaps when the event has not been held for a variety of reasons such as venue issues or not sufficient attendees.
