The oldest trophy in English football has travelled to Alvechurch Football Club.
The FA Cup trophy was at the club ahead of its match against Hanley Town in the preliminary round of the competition on 19 August.
The club has a unique place in the competition’s historic books, winning the longest ever FA Cup fixture – an 11 hour, 6 match marathon tie in the 4th qualifying round against Oxford City, 46 years ago.
The tie was included in the Guinness Book of Records.
Current players and staff were joined at the club by former player and member of the 1971/72 record breaking squad, Derrick Davis.
On having the famous piece of silverware at his former club, Davis, who played in 5 of the 6 fixtures said:
Derrick’s grandson, Harry, is now a regular for Alvechurch under 9s.
