Here’s one I’m very surprised that the young David Evans hasn’t murdered me for neglecting – I’ve this for ages (since last Christmas, in fact) but not found time to assemble it and prep it for the blog, but now seems like as good a time as any – and it’s a cracking bit of Walsall Wood history.
I have pleasure in sharing the Walsall Wood Football Club Golden Jubilee Brochure, from the 1977-1978 season – and in-between then and now as League Champions. the club went through some very tough times so it’s remarkable they survived.
I believe the history of the club actually goes a lot further back than 1928, but is largely lost in the mists of time: However in 1978 it was acknowledged to be 50 years old and the brochure is a thing of wonder, with lots of details and photos of team lineups, the youth team and more.

I have no idea where David found this gem but it’s really wonderful – and sure to bring back lots of memories. My thanks to David for being so very patient and for sharing a really great thing, as ever. Our shared history would be much the poorer were it not for David. And of course his patience with my tardiness…
