An exhibition on the 125th anniversary of the Northern League was launched yesterday at the National Football Museum in Manchester.

Both the exhibition and the museum are excellent.

I've written about it here, especially about the interesting football people I met;

My latest website post.

This is a 'brief guide' post in the Cricket Annual section on The Athletic News Cricket Annual (1888-1955).

The sister publication to The Athletic News Football Annual which is still going today, launched in 1887/88 and now published as The Nationwide Football Annual after years as the The News of the World Football Annual;

Just posted this on the Facebook page for Goals and Wickets;

THE SATURDAY MAN GETS IN TOUCH - Out of the blue, I was contacted this evening by Peter Robinson, the photographer of the Football League Review magazine from 1966/67 onwards. Peter told me the fascinating story of how he got involved with the magazine in its' early days, not as a photographer but as a driver for editor Harry Brown, who needed someone to deliver the new football magazine to the clubs who had agreed to insert it into their match day programmes. I've update the 'brief guide' post on the Goals and Wickets website telling the story of the Football League Review magazine, to include Peter's tale (see link below). It was a privilege to talk to Peter and I've also included a link at the bottom of the post to Peter's website where there are some quite stunning football photographs from his body of work stretching back to the 1960's. It's called, very appropriately, I reckon, The Saturday Man; http://www.goalsandwickets.co......agazine-2/

The Goals and Wickets FB page is here.

Any LIKES would be much appreciated;

Superb guide to these wonderful annuals Mark.

I have collected these on and off for many years and your article has made me want to dig them all out again.

You've cleared up a couple of queries as well. Thumbs Up

Thanks very much.

It's always an issue for me as to what level of detail to go into.

With some titles, categories of memorabilia, I have to create the 'story' literally by looking at the items and that means I'm a bit limited.

On the other hand, maybe too much detail and the posts get too long and are too much for readers to consume?

If the post has triggered some new enthusiasm, then regardless of it's length and level of detail, I hope that's a good effect.

By the way, in my Ebay Shop, there are just of few of these at the moment but over the next week, I've got about 25 of them to put on going back to the Sunday Chronicles of the late 40's and early 1950's.

I think that for articles such as this, which cover a number of variations over a long period of time, the more detail the better.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks, will do.

I've got another one nearly ready on GOAL magazine.

Just hit 1,000 LIKES on the Facebook page for Goals and Wickets.

Thanks to anyone on here who is on that list but also a thank you to those who have visited the site and had a read.

Your support is much appreciated.

Easy

The Facebook page is a good way to follow what's on the site as I put a link to every new post written on the site on there.

But there are also a few other posts on there which may not warrant a full website post but which fit the Goals and Wickets approach nontheless;

My latest 'brief guide' website post, this time on the cricket programmes of the Sunday League which began being issued in 1976.

This was quite a change for cricket and cricket watchers as scorecards had always been the thing that assisted those watching the game;

http://www.goalsandwickets.co......y-league/.

For the football only fans on here, I hope they will be patient with a post about cricket.

I am writing these posts at a ratio of 3 to 1 in favour of football as quite simply, there is way more to cover on the football side of things.

So the next 3 will be football topics.

Coming soon will be that brief guide post on GOAL magazine I mentioned before and which is nearly finished.

Thanks again for any visits to the site.

It was a very pleasant surprise to find the website quoted in an article on Cricket and Blogs in the new 2014 Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, launched yesterday;

The latest brief guide article on the Goals and Wickets website looks at the very popular Charles Buchan's Soccer Gift Book, an annual whose publishers claimed it was the 'World's Greatest Football Annual'.

Following comments above, I've included more detail (especially club / player information) in this post and this has made it much longer than the others I've written on the old football annuals.

But you'll see that it can be read by section as well as in its' entirety.

Any comments / feedback on this adjusted style would be much appreciated;

For those interested in the Football League Review, with the help of 2 collectors, Neil Dickinson and John Wells, I've now added a section to the brief guide to the magazine with details and visuals of all the different cover versions (especially the back covers in 67/8, 68/9 and 73/4), many of which previously, I had no idea existed, even though I sell lots of them and have them all over the house!

Any errors or corrections or additions to this new section which is towards the bottom of the post and is called Collecting the magazine / The different versions and variants would be much appreciated.

I will probably add a Grand Total tally of all numbers / versions as for a pure complete set, the number is actually greater than the 366 editions based on the numbers alone.

However, there are still gaps in the information even with the gentlemen above who know way more about the subject than me, so coming up with such a pure total has a degree of speculation attached to it.

Thanks for any views;

Brilliant stuff as usual. Thumbs Up

Must dig out the boxes of Reviews to check the back covers.

Thanks very much.

Once you start checking, I bet you won't be able to stop!

It's opened up a whole new world for me with the magazine both as a collector and in my listings on Ebay where I'm now going to sell the different versions, a decision which has entailed taking 3 days to adjust all the listings to try and make the information clear without writing a book in the item description Shocked

Great article John.

For 69-70 Liverpool v Man City midweek Tue 12-8-69 (second game of the season) I have this recorded as including FLR 40.A

Also 69-70 Shrewsbury v Bristol R included FLR 40.D, Monday March 30.

Hope that's some help
