READER LETTER: Worksop Town Football Club - Last call for photos for book on Tigers

READER LETTER: Worksop Town Football Club - Last call for photos for book on Tigers

With the help of Mr Jarvis, Mr Smith, the management team of the club, Tigers supporters and the Worksop Library, I have now finished the first draft of my book on the history of Worksop Town Football Club. The club ‘biography’ from 1861-1930, is a fascinating journey, from the extensive playing fields of the old Pestalozzian School on Potter Street, via two grounds on Netherton Road, the Bridge Meadow/Newcastle Avenue ground and Central Avenue. It covers the great ‘giant-killing’ exploits of the first Tigers, who regularly beat league teams, in Worksop, in front of crowds approaching 7,000, and once held Spurs to a draw at White Hart Lane.
