Fleetway Publications / Lion - The Lion Collection of Famous Football Teams

The Lion Collection of Famous Football Teams (cut from comic)
Fleetway Publications / Lion
22 cut-outs

Another collection of collectable cut-outs, this time coming from the Lion comic. I don’t know when they started publishing these, or when they stopped. I presume there are a lot more to discover, as there aren’t many First Division teams in this list.
UPDATE (11-12-2018 20:14):  Bury added and the date for the York City discovered, thanks to a comment added today.
