Noel Beard Trophy / Fairs Cup

Post by 50Trophies » Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:21 am

I'm self-publishing a book on the World's 50 Greatest Sporting Trophies. This naturally includes the very lovely Fairs Cup, which rather more prosaically was named after International Trade Fairs. The beautiful, slim cup is also known as the Noel Beard Trophy, but try as I might, I can't find out who he was, short of he's nothing to do with Noel "Tidybeard" Edmonds. Can anyone help?

Cheers

Jerry

Noël Béard was a Swiss industrialist from Montreux.

Found this on his company - in French, which luckily I speak!
