Can anyone shed some light on this metal detector find? I believe it says, ‘S & D.C.L Challenge Cup 1928?, M’bro St. Georges’.

One thought on “S & D.C.L Challenge Cup Medal

  1. I believe that the initials on this medal stand for Stockton and District Church League. The League comprised about 12 football clubs representing churches from Haverton Hill, Wolviston, Norton, Stockton and Middlesbrough. In addition to their usual league games the clubs also played for the S. & D. C. L. Challenge Cup in a knock-out competition. This medal was awarded to one of the players in the winning team which appears to have been Middlesbrough St. Georges Rovers.
