Surinam - Lewis Cup (Moengo-Paramaribo)


The Lewis Cup was a silver cup donated by H. Lewis, vice president of the Surinaamsche Bauxiet Maatschappij which operated bauxite mines around the town of Moengo in eastern Surinam. It was contested between selections of Moengo and the capital city Paramaribo, and to be kept by the side to win it three times. However, it appears to have only been played for on four occasions, with both towns winning twice - and never as hosts.
