An important piece of SBWFA history was recently unearthed with the rediscovery of the Sangster Cup.
The old trophy was the property of the original Boat of Garten FC, and first competed for back in the 1934/35 season when we played Winter football.
It’s been gathering dust in Kingussie’s Star Hotel ever since it was scooped by the town’s team in 2002 till Grantown United’s Andrew Paterson stumbled upon it.
The list of winners engraved upon it is:
1935/36 Boat of Garten
1937/38 Boat of Garten
1938/39 Boat of Garten
1962 Dulian Bridge
1991 Boat of Garten
2000 Grantown United
Does anyone else know the location of long-lost trophies like this? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
