Description

RARE Victorian Cambridge University 9CT Gold Football Medal. The medal is engraved: "Inter Collegiate Football Association Challenge Cup, won by Trinity Rest, A H Tompson, 1900."

Football in Cambridge was being played on Parker's Piece as far back as the 1830s. However it was not until 1855 that the University had a formal football club, Cambridge University Association Football Club, making it one of the oldest clubs in the world. Collegiate football helped spread the game in the 1870s, and the first competition for these teams was held in 1882–1883. The format was a knockout tournament based on the FA Challenge Cup, which had been created in 1871. The first entrants included nine colleges (Caius, St. John's, Clare, St. Catharine's, Pembroke, Sidney, Jesus, King's and Trinity Hall) and three old boys sides (Old Harrovians, Trinity Etonians and Trinity Rest). It is likely that the university, quick to follow The FA in hosting a cup competition, also soon followed the idea of William McGregor, the founder of The Football League, by creating the Cambridge University Association Football League.


The medal is hallmarked with "9" and ".375" for 9 carat gold alongside the maker's mark "M&B" for Marples & Beasley (Jewellers & medallists, Albion Street, Birmingham), Birmingham assay mark and date letter "Z" for 1899/1900.
