Antiques Roadshow collector reveals tragic story behind valuable football memorabilia stash

AN Antiques Roadshow collector has revealed a tragic story behind a stash of valuable football memorabilia.

Last night’s episode of the BBC programme had been filmed in Newby Hall and host Fiona Bruce and the team were back valuing treasured and beloved items.

An antiques roadshow guest told a tragic story behind a stash of football memorabilia

A guest brought along the objects which belonged to her great grandfather, footballer Ned Liddle, who played for the likes of Southampton and Arsenal.

The lady shared: “He was born in Sunderland in 1878 and he played for Sunderland where he started off.

“Then he moved to Southampton, Clapton Orient, Southend and then finally Arsenal. He played from 1914 to 1920.”

“My uncle passed away recently and we’ve been clearing the house out and we found a lot of the photos there.”

After he hung up his football boots, Ned stayed in and around the game as he was a manager in the 1930’s and also a football scout.

The guest added: “He scouted for most of the major clubs. Tottenham Hotspurs in particular who kept him on until he retired when he was 87.”

Expert Wayne Colquhoun was very impressed with the items and explained how much they would be worth in today’s market.

He said: “From what we see on the table here, a tray hallmark silver, I can estimate it to be seven or 800 pounds. His medals, £500 each on those solid gold medals.

“The contract that’s a hard one. That’s got to be in a museum. That could be worth 800 to a thousand pounds in auction.”

The expert added: “So what we are looking at on the table here today is two or two and a half thousand pounds.”

Expecting the memorabilia would be in high demand, Wayne predicts the footy items could be put on show in a museum.

“There’s a lot of people really interested in this and I’d like to think it could go to a museum.”
