Unique trophy recalled as Liverpool get hands on the Premier League
After clinching their first League Championship for 30 years, Liverpool’s players will be looking forward to getting their hands on the trophy but that in itself is not always as straightforward as you might think.
Although this season’s presentation will be rather different than others of recent years due to lockdown restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, ensuring no fans will be inside Anfield, 21st century Premier League celebrations remain slick, choreographed routines.
Of course, given that the Reds record-breaking wait to finish top of the pile again has been three decades in coming, there will be a new piece of silverware on its way to the Anfield cabinet as their last success was in the pre-Premier League era and brought an old friend back into their arms in the shape of the League Championship trophy.
Successes in the previous decade also saw the Barclays and Canon League trophies presented to title-winning Liverpool sides but arguably the most unusual but also most glorious trinket collected by the club dates from the 1960s.
It might not be made from any kind of precious metal but fashioned with love by a couple of Scousers who were fanatical about the Reds, it’s worth more than its weight in gold.
