A Football Association international trial cap awarded to 'Fanny' Walden whilst playing for Tottenham Hotspur in season 1913-14, purple & white quarters with F.A. monogram.

Fanny Walden was a winger who played for Tottenham Hotspur between 1913 and 1924. He joined Spurs from Northampton Town for a then record signing fee of £1,700 and made over 300 appearances. He missed the 1921 F.A. Cup final through injury. What is being offered here is a trial cap during which he impressed enough to win a full England international cap in 1914, and won a second in 1922. During the summer months played first-class cricket for Northamptonshire CCC. He was an all-rounder who scored over 7,000 career runs and took over 100 wickets and later became an umpire and stood in Test Matches.

Fanny Walden was my Grandad, unfortunately the cap was sold many years ago by a member of my family which didnt know about, My Son is 40 in July and a big fan of his great Grandad I would love to give him special gift.
