Hallam FC was mentioned as part of a feature on Sunday night’s Antiques Roadshow on BBC1.

The Crosspool football club was featured as the TV programme looked at a mid-Victorian jug that turns out to probably be the oldest football trophy in the world. It is also known as the Youdan Cup.

Club historian Phil Farnsworth explained more about the 1866 trophy – and found out that its £50,000 insurance is not enough to cover the cup’s real value.
