FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Very Rare Arsenal FC Charity Shield Winners Medal belonging to Archie MacCauley from 1947-48 Season goes up for auction at Cameo.

Lot 100 is a 15 carat gold medal awarded to Archie MacCauley who was an almost ever present player for Arsenal between 1947 and 1950, making a total of 108 appearances for the club, as well as seven appearances in the Scotland side.

In 1957 he succeeded Tom Parker as manager of Norwich City, where he led the Third Division side to the FA Cup semi-finals in 1959 in one of the most famous FA Cup runs of all time, and promotion to the Second Division the following year. In 1961 he moved on to West Bromwich Albion, though the Baggies did little under his two-year reign, instead enjoying mid-table obscurity.

Macaulay finished his managerial career at Brighton & Hove Albion between 1963 and 1968, leading the club to promotion from the Fourth Division in 1965. After that, he left football management completely. He died in June 1993, aged 77.

This piece has an estimate price of between £2,500 and £3,500, and is appearing in the sale at Cameo Auctioneers of Midgham near Reading in the UK on the 9th June 2009 at 11.00am GMT.

A spokesperson at Cameo confirms that this rare piece has been placed at auction by a member of the family.
