The Trophy was stolen from a display in the shop window of W. Shillcock in Newton Row, Birmingham, after the Final and never recovered despite a £10 reward. The cup was replaced by a copy of the original, made by Howard Vaughton, the former Aston Villa player and England international, who had opened a silversmith's business after his retirement.
