Subbuteo - Squads (1995-96)

300 player cards

When I compiled this information it was all just for my own use, I never dreamed I would end up sharing this with other collectors. Unfortunately I didn't record any of the instruction, training or 'how to play' cards, though I did keep a couple and what little information I have about them is listed below. I would be happy to hear from collectors who can provide further information.
UPDATE (07-01-2017 15:28): Another training card added (Header), thanks to Sean DeLoughry.
UPDATE (10-08-2018 17:10):  Nigel Taylor has provided photos allowing me to update the missing information on the 'How to Play' cards numbered from 1 to 11.
UPDATE (07-01-2020 23:56):  Another Incident card added - Off-Side, thanks to David Stuart, who also provided the scan.

  1. Blister Pack 1 has a typo iddlesbrough and that puts it wrong position in the list. I am just going through my older sets.

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for letting me know, just about to correct it.



  2. Foil Packs 2, slight typo...…………...Schumacher should of course be Schmeichel

  3. Hi Alan,

    There isn't a 'Header' training card in this collection.

    It's classed as a Skill and information of this is found on the paper inserts of the 1996/1997 collection. That's where the confusion could have came in. Cheers.

    1. Hi Tom,
      Just checking, should I delete it from the list?

    2. Hi Alan,

      Yes. It should be deleted.

      Nice one.


  4. The 5 Squads Training Cards were issued with the Foil Packs 1

    1. Thank you, I've just added this information to the checklist.
