Furness Shipyard Athletic Club Medal

t13986I was intrigued with the quality and potential cost of this medal, in a Collingwood Jeweller presentation box, given to my grandfather John William Hill in 1922. Furness shipyards must have provided quite an extensive social facility. As this medal was for cricket I assume all of the team received one. Any information about this period, particularly the social facilities at Furness, would be very much appreciated.
