Athletic: Historic treble is the perfect silver lining.Byline: Tim Johnson
FOR THE first time in the history of English football The History of English football is a long and detailed one, as it is not only the national sport but England was where the game was developed and codified. The modern global game of Football was first codified in 1863 in London. , the three major knockout trophies in their respective categories, the FA Cup, the FA Youth Cup and the English Schools Trophy, have been won by teams from one area.
Liverpool FC memorably followed up their Youth Cup triumph with victory in the FA Cup final, while Liverpool Boys won the competition unofficially known as the "FA Cup for schools".

"The three trophies look fantastic together, we were delighted to be able to put them in the same cabinet," said LFC Museum curator, Stephen Done.
The oldest of the competitions is the FA Cup, which began in 1872. The English Schools Trophy came into existence in 1905 and the Youth Cup is the relative newcomer, being only 53 years old.
When Liverpool Boys won the English Schools Trophy this year they were presented with a replica of the famous old trophy.
The real thing was retired to the Football Museum in Preston, after years of service in 2004.
However, team manager Tom Wyatt felt that he wanted his players to have the traditional photograph taken with the Trophy, so with the permission of the ESFA ESFA European Food Safety Authority
ESFA England School Football Association he went and claimed it from the museum. He also wanted to put it on display to the Liverpool public, possibly for a final time.
"We wanted to find somewhere it could be securely displayed and it was fantastic when after contacting Liverpool FC they agreed to help us. I did not really expect it to be put alongside the FA and Youth Cups," he said.
"Twice before, teams from the same city have won the FA Cup and English Trophy: 1928 Sheffield Boys and Sheffield United' 1934 Manchester Boys and Man City. In 1977 South London South London (known colloquially as South of the River) is the area of London south of the River Thames. Some neighbourhoods north of the Thames have South London postal codes (SW), but these neighbourhoods are classified as West or Central London. Boys and Crystal Palace lifted the Schools and Youth Cups, but never before can a single area claim all three in one season."
