It might refer to these guys -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dewsbury_Rams

From 1875 to 1877 they were known as the Dewsbury Athletic and Football Club.

"1881 saw the club's first success in the Yorkshire Challenge Cup beating Huddersfield, Bradford and Halifax before an Alfred Newsome drop goal gave them victory over Wakefield Trinity in the final. "

A very interesting watch. I'm sure if you contact the club, they will probably have records from that time.

interesting that at one point the owner of this watch ( my watchmaker friend) did contact the club.  He asked if they would be interesting in purchasing it.  They replied with a "no".
