As awarded to Special Constable J. Duxbury, Accrington Police Special Constabulary, who played football for the Accrington Schools Football Association. His brother, Tom Duxbury, was also a well regarded footballer, and played for Preston North End between 1919 and 1924, and was an FA Cup finalist in 1922. He played for Leeds United between 1924 and 1926, and later Fleetwood. The family appears to have had a connection with the beautiful game through to later years, with another family member, Mike Duxbury, also born in Accrington, having played for Manchester United, Blackburn Roberts, Bradford City and then Golden, as well as for England between 1983 and 1984.
