Soccer magazine - Club Curiosities (02)


1940's
Club Curiosities
Soccer magazine
22 cut-outs

Richard Small has provided information about these cuttings coming from Soccer magazine, the official journal of the Football Players' Union. I originally included a post a few years ago that was labelled as an unknown issuer and Richard's e-mail proves that they were printed in Soccer magazine. The first issue of the magazine was issued in December 1947 and there are four months in 1948 with no issue (close season May-August). Richard also points out that these also include acknowledgements to the Sporting Record and it's possible they originally appeared in that publication. Obviously, more research is required.

UPDATE (21-02-2020 13:54):  Richard Small has provided information about four of these - numbers 7, 18, 19 and 20.
UPDATE (16-05-2020 09:51):  It is possible that the March 1950 issue was the last ever magazine.
