Title: STFC history from nearly 50 years ago
Post by: ahounsell on Friday, July 10, 2020, 10:57:04
Been looking through an old set of football books, a weekly publication that formed a set of 5 volumes on the history of the game covering every club in England and Scotland as well as famous players, matches etc...
It was published in the very early 70s so almost 50 years ago. There are some STFC gems in there which I have photographed and uploaded. The pictures arent great but you can read pretty much all of the text.

First a 2 page history of STFC
