Is the Melville Cup in YOUR cupboard?

THE hunt is on for a golf trophy whose history stretches back to 1939. The J W Melville Cup was contested in an annual team match between railway staff golf societies, the BR Scottish Region Head Offices Golf Club and, initially, Belfast's N.C.C. staff club. The war suspended the match until 1947 when it recommenced as match against the Ulster Transport Golfing Society. This lasted until 1980 but Ulster Transport reorganised and contact faded. In 1982 Sealing, staff golfers revived the contest and it enjoyed another decade of competition. The Sealink team won the last encounter and held the cup but again contact has been lost and the cup's whereabouts are a mystery. John Galloway is asking readers if they have any information about the cup. He says: "Can any readers assist and perhaps unearth the J W Melville so it can be restored to competition rather than being locked away in some dusty recess? "If so pease contact me on 07799 963593, or email jafg12@jafg12.plus.com"
