Northern Football Alliance
A little piece of Hexham football history returned home recently when local writer & Northern Alliance press officer Jon Tait contacted us about a winner’s medal he bought on the internet. It was an original champion’s medal from the 1935-36 season when Hexham won the Northern Football Alliance.
It was made by “Vaughtons Ltd “Goldsmiths & Silversmiths of Birmingham. He asked would we like to have it back into the clubs possession, we asked how much he paid for the memorabilia but he immediately refused any recompense and he requested we give a donation to charity. So today a personal cheque was given to Tynedale Hospice at Home and the charity were very grateful.
Soon we hope to have a secure cabinet at Dukeshouse where our little piece of history will be displayed.
Many thanks Jon
