Anyone recognise this trophy?

The venue is Easter Road and the player is Hugh Howie I think. Looks from the sequence (see https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 600&type=3) that it is a presentation before a match, so it may just be a player award or something.

Just trying to date the photos - must be post 50/51 as the East Terrace has been enlarged already. The fact that the policemen are not wearing helmets may also be significant - all I can find on that is that they were phased out in the early 50s as the use of police cars increased.

At the risk of being cruel, I think I can safely name one which it isn't.

Any chance it might be the trophy awarded to the winners of the annual charity match played in the 40's & 50's when an Edinburgh Select would play against glamour opposition at Easter Road one year, Tynecastle the next? Think it was known as the Allinson Trophy?
