The James Beattie Trophy was presented to the Club by James Beattie in 1960.
James Beattie (Senior) opened a drapery shop on Wolverhampton's Victoria Street in 1877. Over the next decade the store grew into a thriving business. A fire in 1896 destroyed Beattie's shop but Beattie was determined to rebuild his business. Beattie relocated across the street, and this store proved still more successful than the original store. After James Beattie's death in 1934 his grandson, the younger James Beattie, was appointed Company Secretary. In 1961 James Beattie became Managing Director and Chairman.
It is during this period that James Beattie presented this Trophy to the Club. Up until 2005 when Beattie's was taken over by the House of Fraser a monetary gift was also presented with this trophy.
