Sauchie Band Charity Badge

In 1886-87, the Sauchie Colliery Band organized a successful charity badge competition. Because of their superiority over the other local clubs, Alloa Athletic were to enter their 2nd XI.
Spurred by the competition’s success, clubs in the county formed the Clackmannanshire Charity FA in 1887 to run a Charity Cup.
