Bradford City 1911 FA Cup medal goes on display
7:30am Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
More than 100 years ago, Bradford City won the FA Cup in Manchester, beating Newcastle United 1-0.
Now one of the medals from that victory in 1911 is going back to the city to feature in an exhibition marking the 125th anniversary of the Football League.
It’s the medal awarded to Jimmy Speirs, the captain of the side and the man who scored the only goal in the match played at Manchester United’s new ground, Old Trafford. Speirs was one of nine City players killed in the First World War.
Game Changers: 125 Years Of The Football League is a free exhibition now on at National Football Museum in Manchester.
It runs until April next year. September to April was the length of the first season of The Football League in 1888/89.
Greg Clarke, chairman of The Football League, said: “This new exhibition at the National Football Museum captures the essence of The Football League and what it means to millions of people throughout the country.”
