Description

Sid Douthwaite (right), secretary of West Auckland Football Club, with the 'World Cup' in the bar of the Eden Arms, West Auckland, County Durham. The Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy, sometimes referred to as the First World Cup, was won outright by West Auckland FC who beat FC Winterthur at Turin in 1909. Because of financial problems, the club later pawned the trophy to the landlady of the local hotel. In 1960 an appeal succeeded in returning the cup to the club. The cup was stolen in 1994 and was never found.
