"I am an ex-Dawdon lad now living in Cornwall, but still think of Seaham as my home. My
father Arthur Dobson was a local cricketer for Seaham Harbour CC and was Captain
of Seaham Park CC many years ago. Not long before he died he gave me many of his
personal possessions one of which always made him laugh. It was a winners medal in
the Seaham Schools League of 1924-1925, he said he hated football and never thought
he would win anything in the sport. I am enclosing a photo of the medal."
