Clarets fans have the chance to own one of the rarest Burnley mementoes of all time.

The 15-carat gold 1914 FA Cup winners medal presented to Eddie Mosscrop when he helped the Clarets win the cup for the first and so far only time in the club's 129 year history is set to fetch up to £7,000 at an auction next month.

It is expected to sell for between £5,000 and £7,000 at Bonhams in Chester on February 2.

Mosscrop's 1914 FA Cup final shirt is set to fetch between £1,000 and £1,500 at the same auction, while the 9-carat gold Hunter fobwatch he received from Burnley after helping the club win the Football League championship in 1921 could sell for up to £5,000.

Edwin 'Eddie' Mosscrop played on the left wing for Burnley in the FA Cup final against Liverpool at the Crystal Palace, London, on April 25,1914, the year the First World War started.

It was the first FA Cup final for both clubs and it was also the first time that a reigning monarch, King George V, had watched an FA Cup final. Burnley won 1-0 thanks to a goal from centre forward Bert Freeman.

Mosscrop, who was born at Southport on June 16,1892, joined Burnley in 1912 - the year the Titanic sank with the loss of more than 1500 lives - and went on to make 198 appearances for the Clarets in all competitions.

In their book, Burnley: A Complete Record,1882-1991, authors Edward Lee and Ray Simpson said Mosscrop was "at his brilliant best in the successful FA Cup run of 1914 and his outstanding form brought him two England caps in the Home Championship that year. After the war,in which Mosscrop saw active service in Salonika, he was still the club's regular left winger until losing his place to Walt Weaver."

Mosscrop eventually quit football in 1922 and became a schoolteacher.

He was 87 when he died on March 14, 1980.

A Burnley FC spokesman said: "The club will get advice whether it is worth placing a bid for these items."
