Medal - Cardiff FC Junior Challenge Cup 1896/97

Object Id: 
Silver medal awarded to the winners of the cup.
In 1896/97, the Cardiff club introduced an annual cup competition for under-seventeen year old players to foster junior rugby in the area. Sixteen teams entered and silver medals were presented to the winners. This medal was therefore awarded to a member of the Canton Crescents team who beat Roath Crescents by 3 tries to 2 tries in the final held at Cardiff Arms Park on 1st May 1897.
Cardiff continued to organise the competition until 1906/07, when it was taken over by the Cardiff and District Rugby Union.
