Harry Thomas was the County Captain, President and loyal servant of the game for 60 years. Following the premature death of his son, David in 1997, he introduced the David Thomas Memorial Trophy. The competition is contested between schools from Sunderland, Durham and Cleveland playing in 3 age groups. David’s company Multisol were keen to show their support and have sponsored the competition since it started. Hilary Banner from Multisol and David's widow Jean Thomas attend the Final's Day whenever possible.
Multisol's support provides top class facilities for Finals Day plus £100 prize money for each winning school.
