I will be brief for a change on this momentus day, 24th October which is the 155th birthday of SHEFFIELD FC. where FOOTBALL KICKED OFF.
Look at the new, re-designed www.sheffieldfc.com web site and follow the trail of Sir Nathaniel Crestwick and William Prest, founders of the first club. You have the cahnce to look at the history and to SEND A BIRTHDAY GREETING from all over the world, and please pass on the chance for all your friends, clubs, players, officials, journalists to do the same. There is still time today.
Become a member, a life member, or buy something from the club shop. Come and visit and enjoy a Pukka Pie, a cup of tea, and have a drink in the club owned COACH & HORSES Pub attached to the ground, before, half-time or after the match.
Next year is also the 150th anniversary of THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION with lots of interesting matches and events. www.thefa.com
All other associations are referred to by their country, but THE FA stands alone because it was THE FIRST.
WHAT WOULD LIFE AND THIS WORLD BE WITHOUT SHEFFIELD F.C. AND THE BEAUTIFUL GAME ?
