Meet the Leyton Orient fan, and talented engraver at the Thomas Lyte fine-silver workshops, who has the dream job of engraving his own team on the 2022/23 League Two champions trophy
Here at Thomas Lyte, we never become blasé at the sight of the sporting world’s most famous trophies residing in our London workshop.
Whether it’s the FA Cup returning for its annual restoring process, or the ICC Test Mace being readied for its latest handover, we know what these trophies mean, not just to us, but to the recipients and those watching on spellbound in the stands of Wembley, Lord’s, Wimbledon or pretty much any major global sporting venue you care to mention.
Occasionally, though, things get even more personal. Which is where Leyton Orient’s League Two title charge comes in.
Not too long ago, the O’s were struggling in the National League. Now, they’re on the brink of winning the League Two title. Which is not only great news for the club, but also a scarcely believable scenario for the man charged with engraving their name on the trophy – Barney Nash.
