Museum marks cup-win centenary

An exhibition will mark the centenary of Bradford City’s FA Cup winning season.

When the FA Cup Came Home charts the team’s journey to FA cup success, telling the stories of the players, their part in the victory and what later became of them.

The team won it in 1911 after playing a rematch against Newcastle United.

The exhibition at Bradford Industrial Museum also includes five of the medals that were presented to each member of the victorious team.

Visitors will be able to have their photograph taken with the FA Cup when it comes to the museum on April 26 exactly 100 years after Bradford City won the trophy.

Councillor Paul Flowers, Bradford Council’s executive member responsible for culture, said: “When the FA Cup Came Home will provide a glimpse of Bradford life at the beginning of the 20th century and show how these echoes from the past still have resonance for us today.”

The exhibition will run from March 19 until June 12.
