Academy League Knockout Cup

The 1995 Academy League Knockout Cup was the 28th edition of the Knockout Cup for tier two teams.[3]

It was only the tier two competition because the Division 1 & 2 had merged, this meant that the newly formed Academy League was tier two of British speedway at the time. Berwick Bandits were awarded the Cup following a first leg final victory, Stoke did not hold the second leg.
