MEMORABILIA PAGES

18.jpg (242293 bytes) LLWYNYPIA FC 1897-8 RUGBY HONOURS CAP - A navy blue velvet honours cap for the Rhondda club Llwynypia. In the late 1800s Llwynypia were one of the strongest sides in Wales boasting international players in their ranks such as Willie Llewellyn, Percy Bush and Dick Hellings. The cap is generally in good condition but does have a tear to the peak and one above the braiding just to the right of L.F.C.

WALES v FRANCE 1974 EMBROIDERED FLAG - This embroidered flag is identical to the touch judges flag from the Wales v France 1974 match and is from the collection of Ron Lewis, the Welsh international referee (7 tests 1970-1974) who run the line in this martch. We have previously sold his actual touch judges flag (illustrated bottom) which was double sided so can't be sure why exactly this additional flag was in Ron's possession. It is probable that it was a test piece for the original used in the match. The flag is generally in good condition and is sold together with the official programme and a used ticket from the match.

Summary includes a round-up of both codes as if they are one game. A small second hand hardback book without a dust wrapper, generally there is light wear to the book with minor surface damage to the advertisements at the beginning and end of the book, overall it is in good condition.

THE GENERALS OF THE RUGBY WORLD CUP - SIGNED BY THE WINNING No 10s WILKINSON, STRANSKY, FOX ETC

This limited edition book celebrates the 25th anniversary of the RWC and covers the history of each tournament. It contains the original signatures of the first five-eighths / fly halves / outside halves / No 10s  of each winning country. The great names roll off the tongue – Grant Fox, Michael Lynagh, Joel Stransky, Stephen Larkham, Jonny Wilkinson, ‘Butch’ James, Aaron Cruden and Stephen Donald.

Generals’ is also a special record of the Rugby World Cup – a comprehensive appraisal and coverage of every tournament (up to and including 2011), superbly illustrated and with full results (scores, scorers, teams, officials etc) of EVERY game played over the 25 years since 1987. The first five-eighths of the victorious teams provide extra wonderful input with their analysis and stories and strategies. No other group of players has been more influential. They’re the ‘generals’ who move their players around rugby’s ‘chessboard’ – and the masterminds who share their coaches’ thinking and act as his eyes and ears on-field.

The book is contained in a special printed presentation box and is one of a limited edition of 590.

A quaint look at ball sports during the mid 19th century. Nearly half the book is dedicated to cricket with a nice observation of the current chaos within the various codes of football at the time "There are hardly two schools or clubs in England who agree as to how Foot-ball should be played..." Overall the condition is good with some light creasing to the covers and a small piece missing from the inside cover. A rare publication.

This booklet forms the original notes of the club secretary William Evans and possibly others from September 1880 to February 1885. It contains team line up and notes relating to matches played by the Cork team and Munster. Included in the booklet are newspaper cutting relating mainly to matches played by Munster.

Included amongst the newspaper cuttings is the great Munster victory by one try to nil over Leinster on 4th December 1880. This allowed the Munstermen 6 committee members on the IRFU main committee. It is interesting to note that the booklet contradicts recorded Irish history. Charles Mulqueen in his 1983 Munster history states after the 1880 victory over Leinster that.......

"the Munstermen, flushed with success, sent a team under William Goulding to Wales. Edmund van Esbeck records in One Hundred Years of Irish Rugby. 'They played three matches, one against Newport, which they lost, one against a South Wales XV, which they also lost, and they ended their campaign on a successful note by defeating Neath"

The booklet records that the Irish Wanderers lost to Newport, however it states that they beat the South Wales XV by a try and and touch in goal to nothing. It then states that they beat a Cardiff XV (not Neath) by a try. This last result is confirmed by C. S. Arthur in his 1907 Cardiff history.

There are some great observations on the style of play and matches, there looks to have been a change of author in 1883-84 as a different hand records a visit by the Yorkshire giants Wakefield Trinity.

"Thursday 22nd (November 1883) Cork v Wakefield trinity in the Park. Backs of W T was magnificent, Bartram dropping two goals from the field"

The booklet has two roles, to the front are the club secretary's accounts, mainly stationary purchases, while the notes are recorded when the at the back when the booklet is reversed. In total 35 pages have either notes or cutting attached.

The Cork Football Club was first formed in 1868 (from a web blog by David Toms in 2016 - CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO. ) A notice in the Cork Examiner dated 14 November 1868 invited future players for the first practice at the City Park on the following Monday.
