It looks like a croquet ball on a pint glass.
It looks like something used in duty-free airport shops to sell perfume.
It looks like the headlamp of Mario Balotelli's car.
It looks like David Beckham's cricket box.
It looks like something they use to teach multiplication to the sheikh's children in Dubai.
It looks like the Sultan of Brunei's shower gel.

Etc etc.

I was under the impression that the 1986 OECS Trophy went to Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, after they trounced BVI something like 12-1 on aggregate (BVI had won the Leewards tournament, SVG had won the Windward tournament). Might be mistaken...

Also, on another note, nice to see a circumflexed W.

Yes it is the Leewards section of the OECS. Official name something like "Carib Beer Leeward Islands Tournament for the OECS Trophy", or equivalent variations of that.
As you say, SVG then won the overall OECS Trophy by thrashing BVI 11-2 on aggregate.

I didn't want to say "Leeward Islands Trophy" because it is different from the original Leewards trophy from earlier decades. I'll clarify this above.

Indeed, and if you are irritated at the poor quality of seafood available at the post-tournament banquet, you may find it ironic that Marah Halim Cup is an anagram of "Calamari, Humph!"

If there are any requests to see pictures of other obscure trophies then please send a formal letter to the Chief Secretary of Trophy Pictures, in the Administration Department at NFM24 Towers.

Which is the newspaper of the 1965 CONCACAF Championship photo? It wouldn't seem El Informador...

A photo from the book "Amateurs in Oranje; 50 jaar Nederlands amateurelftal". Apart from the Marah Halim Cup itself (the biggest one) a replica of it (the cup itself was made of 8 kg. pure gold, so too precious to be handed over), trophy for the best player of the tournament (Rob Krul), trophy for the sportiest player (Ginus Meijerink), and one unknown.
Note that if Burma had won the final, they would have been allowed to keep the trophy after three consecutive wins.

And we all know what would happen to the 8kg of gold then...

Another example for your historical trophies fetish.    From 1966:

After the 1966 edition, the Gossage Cup was replaced with the East Africa Challenge Cup.
