Guess it was presented to us before the 2-2 game to commemorate CP's centenary. How did you get you come across it?

A mud lark. Sounds like someone wasn't impressed with it and lobbed it in.

Could they have been given to the players? Surely something like that being presented to the club would be placed in the trophy cabinet?

 

Incidentally, buy/sell section. What do you want for it?

Doing a bit of beach combing on the Thames and found it washed up on the shore.

 

Christ!

I'd be interested if you're selling and didn't post it accidentally.

Back off. I want more backstory before this goes any further.

So we need to look at players who played in that game who then moved to a London club? Or are we assuming it's been bobbing around in the thames for 11 years?

I am interested in selling but as for price, I have no idea.... my first thoughts were that a player had had a bad game and lobbed it in the Thames.

It does say "presented to Southampton FC" although I guess each player could have had one. Bloody strange how it got there.

I have decided to put the sale on hold.. I have contacted Southampton FC, I asked if it was lost or stolen.. Message from them- Dear Vincent,Thank you for your E Mail.

It’s fantastic to hear you have what sounds like an official Southampton Football Club Trophy!

Could we ask that you send us a picture of the trophy, so we can communicate with our club historians and club secretary, and advise what would be the best course of action.

Your help is much appreciated.

Kind Regards

A response already.... Hello Vincent,

Thank you for providing us with the attached photographs.

The trophy in question was more than likely one given to all Premier League clubs by crystal palace during their centenary year.

Therefore as the trophy is not significant to our past results, you are more than welcome to keep it.

We thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Kind Regards

Daniel
