BACKPASS ISSUE 67
BACKPASS 67, the winter issue, has been mailed to subscribers. However we appear to have been badly let down by Royal Mail with first-class post still not delivered after SIX days! … (the latest news is that they believe a bag of 48 copies has gone missing). If you haven’t received your copy by Thursday, November 14, please contact the BACKPASS office and we will send out a replacement. Equally there have again been printing problems so if you have received a damaged copy (or the middle pages have come away) please let us know and we will post out a replacement. Issue 67 includes interviews with Allan Clarke, Gordon Milne, Glenn Cockerill, Ted Farmer, David Lee and referee Alan Seville, Dundee from 1945 to 1970, Norman Giller’s Penalty Kings, the Daily Express Five-a-Side Championships, the legacy of Ivan Sharpe plus footballing record covers, Craig Brown on Bobby Brown, Midland Soccer and Sports Scene magazine, Everton’s sponsored kit of 1979, the 1982-83 FA Cup competition won by Manchester United, What Happened To? … Swansea City’s 1981-82 side who topped the Division One table, the opening day of the Alliance Premier League (now the National League) in 1979 and the obituaries of, amongst others, Mike Ferguson, Peter Downsborough and Joe Mason. And much, much more.
BACKPASS 68 will be published in early January. There will be no Christmas issue of the magazine this year.
