After over 60 years, the Jimmy Miller Trophy for the Alva Hill Race comes home. It was handed to the late, great Bill Teasdale after he had won the race six times although he went on to win it nine in all.
Eight times winner Alastair Dunn spotted it up for auction last week in Cumbria so we teamed up with him to bid for it and are absolutely thrilled that our bid won. Alastair is pictured last Friday handing over the magnificent silverware to Games Secretary Craig Dunbar who happened to be in that neck of the woods for Saturday's Egremont Crab Fair Sports.
To say that we are chuffed to bits to have it back is an understatement and we will forever be in the debt of Mr Dunn for his sharp eye and quick actions in securing the return of this historic trophy.
