SOTHEBY'S OFFERS RARE GOLD 1920 FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP MEDAL

1920 Football Champoinship Medal A 1920 Football League championship medal awarded to West Bromwich Albion trainer Bill Barber may fetch up to 5,000.

The nine carat gold medal is engraved: "The Football League Champions, Division 1, West Bromwich Albion, W.Barber,1919-1920."

It will be auctioned at Sotheby's, London, next Wednesday afternoon.

The medal is rare because 1919-20 was the only time Albion won the Football League title. It was also the first year back for the league after it was suspended in 1916 because of the First World War. Bill Barber was the club's trainer for at least 15 years.
