Something to play for! (Not really)


Recommended Posts

There used to be similar thing in local football….the away win “belt”, a team winning away took the belt, until such time as they were beaten at home, the winning away team holding it until they lost at home, and so on.

I was not aware of it until we (Brislington) took it off of someone (who I forget).

I believe its origins were following the death of a player on the way to a game, and used to commemorate his passing.  Might’ve been an Exeter Utd player???

Anyone have any more info / heard of it?
