History
Written by Brian Stephenson   

In its early years (from the inaugural event in 1979-1980 to 1990-1991), this competition was sponsored by Lloyds Bank. They were succeeded for three years (1991-1992 to 1993-1994) by East West Consultants Ltd., and then the years up to 2002-2003 were unsponsored. Then, in 2003-2004 Winton Capital Management started the current sponsorship.

Over the years the format of the competition has changed to take account of changing circumstances. The first controller of the competition was John Rice, who was succeeded by Brian Stephenson when the sponsorship passed to East West Consultants Ltd in 1991. He ran the competition for 25 years until 2016.

A new controller has yet to be appointed.
