A replica of the trophy, known as the first world cup, is on display in Durham this weekend.

The Sir Thomas Lipton trophy was won by West Auckland at a football tournament in Turin in 1909. The competition also included sides from Italy, Germany and Switzerland.

The trophy was stolen in 1994 and was never recovered. A replica was created, which is on display at West Auckland Workingmen's Club.

Today (17th November), the trophy is at Grey College in Durham as part of a talk by the world cup interpreter, George Scanlan.

The free talk is taking place at 2:15pm at Holgate House.
