Ultimate guide to Middlesbrough Football Programmes from 1920-1940

The football programme is a lasting memory of a bygone era, resurrected through the language, artistry, images, and advertisements that adorn the pages of every programme, thereby providing a unique insight into the very existence of the football club throughout the generations.

This is the second in a unique series of six books that comprehensively documents every known (and unknown) match programme and fixture played by teams at various levels representing Middlesbrough Football Club from the 1920/21 season to the 1939/40 season. This includes routine league and cup fixtures, plus many long forgotten and obscure friendly, postponed, and abandoned matches.

This A4 sized book has over 90 glossy pages featuring more than 180 images covering the second two decades of the twentieth century and includes:

  • Individual Middlesbrough fixture details including match scores.
  • Commentary on selected programmes including match details and related club and player information.
  • Images of selected programmes, teams, players, and press reports.
  • Details of other matches played at Ayresome Park. Other highlights include special articles on “The 1920/21 North Riding Senior Cup Campaign”, “The Yo-Yo Years (1923/24 to 1928/29)”, “George Camsell - 120 Goals in Two Seasons”, “The Amateur Cup at Ayresome Park During the 1920s & 1930s” and “10...9...8...”.

In addition, discover new facts which have previously never been seen before in the public domain.

The cost of the book is £15.00 (plus £4.50 postage & packing) or collection can be arranged to save on postage costs. Please email gary.bolton1@ntlworld.com to order your copy.
