THE JW HUNT CUP

The JW Hunt Cup Charity football competition was formed in 1926 to raise funds for the sole benefit of the local blind.
It is named in memory of John William Hunt, a local business man and benefactor.
JW Hunt founded the local Chillington Tool Company and was a supporter of local charities. 
The firms trademark was the "crocodile", and the crocodile is incorporated into the trophy handles

It has been run every season since 1926/27 season.
The inaugural winners being Short Heath United who beat Cannon Iron at Molineux, Wolverhampton in April 1927.
Over £330,000 has been raised since!.


Season 2015/16 was the JW Hunt Cups 90th Anniversary and a special appeal helped us to donate £12000 to the Beacon Centre. 

Teams compete from the Birmingham, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire Football Associations.

In January 2013 JW Hunt Cup President Alex Hamil was presented with the MBE by HRH Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace. Alex received the award for services to football and the visually impaired (Photo above).

Hi Everyone. I'm a football collector & recently had the privilege of speaking with Alex Hamil. He suggested that I post on here, asking if anybody had any footballs from the 50's - 1990's. If so, I'd love to hear from you - even if you don't wish to part with any, it'd be great to see some photos as it's difficult to research older balls. 
Many thanks, Rob
