Some of the North East's sporting heritage is set to go on sale tomorrow (December 4th) as footballing medals and photographs go under the hammer at Newcastle's Anderson and Garland auction house.
Medals belonging to Newcastle United's Frank "Guv'nor" Watt are expected to be in high demand.
Nine medals - including some from the early 1900s and 1920s - have been valued at £6000 at Tuesday's Fine Art and Antiques Sale.
"The football medals belonging to Frank Watt are a fantastic piece of sporting history and NUFC fans will tell you how ambitious he was for the club, declaring on his arrival: 'We are going to be the best team in the country.'
For that reason and due to his success at the club, we expect the collection to sell extremely well."
