Sheffield united football & cricket club bling

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

An odd request here.

 

Ive just stumbled upon 2 late 1800/early 1900 solid gold chains and medallions here Down Under with a link to the club. The first is engraved with the following:

 

PRESENTED TO

S. HAGUE

BY THE SHEFFIELD  UNITED F & C CLUB AND GATEMEN IN RECOGNITION OF HIS 50 YEARS OF SERVICE AS A GATEMAN.

NOV. 1924.

 

And the second:

 

N & O. C. L

DIV. III. SECT. A.

A.T. HAGUE

1913

 

Any Sheffield FC history buffs in the house? 

Im assuming the former (S. HAGUE) was collecting coin at the gates for entry, but the latter has me stumped. Who was A. T. HAIG, (a player??), and what could N & O C L stand for?

 

Not sure what to do with these but thought Id throw it out to the Sheffield FC brains trust!

 

Cheers,

Jim

On the first one, F & C definitely stands for Football and Cricket. 

For the second one, just guessing, the C L could stand for Cricket League but the N & O has me stumped, if you'll excuse the pun.

Yes Id thought perhaps "League", but hadnt considered cricket.

Hello Jim  in Perth . Is there a chance the inscription on the  cricket medal is N and D  CL, rather than N and O CL.  If so it may be from the now defunct Norton and District Cricket league.

Would they be at the pavilion end?
