  1. Lovely items! Wish my team had been around in this era; HTAFC only started in 1908, League team by 1910.

  2. There certainly were other pages Alan, covering half-backs, forwards and referees, plus similar pages featuring 'England's new Internationals' as well as Scotland's. 'The Book of Football' is, I think, the best book on the sport ever issued, with fantastic pictures that wouldn't have been available anywhere else. It was originally published in 12 weekly parts, designed to be bound into book form. I will see if I can photograph the relevant pages and send them in.

    1. Hi Chris, thanks for the information. If you send in any scans, I'll certainly include them on this website.
