The earliest Manchester United medal ever to be auctioned off has today sold for over £24,000.<br />
<br />
The Manchester Senior Cup winner's medal was presented to Thomas Fitzsimmons in 1893 when the club was known at Newton Heath.<br />
<br />
They beat Bolton Wanderers 2-1 in the final at Hyde Road, the original ground of their rivals Manchester City.<br />
<br />
His medal was sold 128 years later by a private collector with London-based auctioneers Graham Budd.
