In late November 1921, the football season was well underway. Reports of the matches in the Tiverton and District Association League Charity Cup appeared regularly in the Gazette. This describes the match between Tiverton Athletic and Silverton:

‘a large crowd saw a game which, if it lacked some of the finer elements, was productive of a strenuous fight, attended by no little excitement’ The result was Tiverton 1, Silverton 0.

At the end of this season Tiverton Athletic merged with Uffculme St Peters to become Tiverton AFC.

A medal on a chain

We have a medal from the 1920-21 season in the Museum’s collection as well as very many photos and programmes. This photo shows the Junior team of 1921-22 who were probably members of the then East Devon Junior League, perhaps they won it that season?
