The Sporting Auction | Part Two: The Celtic Story

Lot 1893


with central enamel goat of arms bordered by green and white, inscribed GLASGOW CHARITY CUP, the reverse inscribed WON BY CELTIC F.C. 1905 J. HAY, in nine carat gold

Note: Jimmy Hay is amongst the greatest Celts of all time. He signed for the team in 1903, going on to become captain from 1906 until he moved to Newcastle in 1911. Nicknamed The General, he combined immense strength with subtle skill, earning his rank in Willie Maley's legendary side.

This glorious green and white medal was awarded to Hay when he helped Celtic to their 8th Glasgow Charity Cup, beating Partick 2-0 in the final.
