Victory Shield
(U16 Boys)

The Victory Shield was presented to the International Board in 1923 by Lord Invernairn.  Originally a trophy for senior international charity matches immediately after WW1, it is currently contested for by U16 Boys selects representing the Associations within the United Kingdom and Ireland.  The Football Association took over the team from the ESFA in 1997 and withdrew the U16 England team from the competition in 2015.
