SOUTH NANTS & DORSET JUNIOR CHALLENGE CUP MEDAL 1884/85,
awarded to Ernest Collier Duchesne of Bournemouth Arabs, the obverse with central football in relief within a crowned laurel wreath border, the reverse inscribed 'SOUTH HANTS & DORSET JUNIOUR CHALLENGE CUP, FINAL TIE 1884-5 WINNERS BOURNEMOUTH ARABS E.C. DUCHESNE', in bronze, 5.4cm high including bale
Note: Bournemouth Arabs were founded in the late 19th century, and would later amalgamate with local side Bournemouth F.C., who still compete to this day. This medal is an early piece relating to the Arabs, and appears to have been awarded to their first captain, Duchesne, in their first year of play.
