Big Match magazine - Big Match Soccer Super Album Superstar Stickpix

Big Match Soccer Super Album Superstar Stickpix
Big Match magazine
180+ cut-outs

Gerard Scully has provided all the scans shown here relating to a collection I've never come across before. To be honest I didn't even know of the existence of the magazine.
Big Match was published monthly (except July) by Hadrian Publications Ltd., 3 New Burlington Street, London W1, and distributed by Angus Distribution Ltd., Paul Street, London EC2. Gerard thinks the magazine started out as a poster magazine, probably in 1975 before becoming a proper magazine at some point. 
The July 1976 issue of Big Match magazine (Vol. 2/ No. 20) announced the forthcoming Big Match Soccer Super Album collection. Gerard has provided scans of all the relevant pages that he has in his collection and thinks the magazine ceased publication before the collection was completed. I've had a look at the British Library website and I can't find any reference to this publication.
The number of photos per club varies quite considerably, this list includes 13 Leeds United players  but only 4 from Bristol City and Sunderland, while some of the Scottish teams only have 1 player.
