THE BEEVOR CUP
HISTORY
THE CUP WAS DONATED TO GREAT YARMOUTH TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB BY THE BEEVOR FAMILY WHO WERE LOCAL FAMILY BUTCHERS. IT WAS DONATED AS A CHARITY CUP TO RAISE FUNDS FOR LOCAL GOOD CAUSES. THE CUP WAS COMMISSIONED BY H ATKINS SIVERSMITHS OF LONDON AND IS OF SOLID SILVER. ALTHOUGH THE CUP WAS ALWAYS PRESENTED TO THE WINNERS ON THE DAY,THE CUP ALWAYS REMAINED IN GREAT YARMOUTH’S POSSESSION
FOR THE FIRST TWO SEASONS 4 CLUBS ENTERED THE CUP AND THE TOURNAMENT WAS PLAYED IN A SEMI FINAL/FINAL FORMAT. THE BLOATERS FIRST WON THE CUP AT THE 5TH ATTEMPT IN 1903 WHEN NORWICH CITY WERE DEFEATED 1-0. THE CUP WAS FIRST SHARED IN 1908 WHEN YARMOUTH AND CEYMS PLAYED OUT A 0-0 DRAW. THE FIRST REPLAYED FINAL WAS IN 1910 WHEN THE BLOATERS BEAT THE GREENS 2-0 TWO DAYS AFTER DRAWING THE ORIGINAL GAME 1-1. THE CUP WAS NOT PLAYED FOR IN SEASON 1911-12 AND OF COURSE THERE WAS NO FOOTBALL DURING THE FIVE SEASONS THROUGHOUT THE FIRST WORLD WAR.
