Trophy: Lazenby Cup Item
1960sThis item is referred to as the “Lazenby Cup”, however it should be noted that there are several competitions that bear this name. The Cups were the gift of Arthur Thompson Lazenby, who at one time was a member of the board of the Leeds Cricket, Football and Athletic Co., Ltd. However, Mr Lazenby had an interest in junior Rugby League football for many years, and gave many trophies to senior and junior Rugby League football.
The Lazenby Cups were gifts of Mr Lazenby for the encouragement of junior Rugby League football. The Cups were played for annually by Leeds and Hunslet, Dewsbury and Wakefield Trinity, and Keighley and Bradford Northern. The first Lazenby Cup was reportedly played by Dewsbury and Wakefield Trinity on 17 April 1920.
Mr Lazenby died in 1946, aged 73.
