Blast from the past

q1Andrew Bubien continues his look back at BSFC handbooks from the 60s and 70s with a peek at the 1970/1 edition.

At the end of the 1969/70 season Blues won the Athenian League Premier Division title and the handbook for the following season covered this fine achievement. George Wilson, the club President, once again wrote a foreword and in gratitude for his 40 years loyal and dedicated service to the Football Club, the ground at Rhodes Avenue was named “ The George Wilson Stadium”.
A couple of the photographs from the handbook have been reproduced and also a summary of attendance figures for the previous 10 years which make interesting reading and reflects the success of the club during this period in league and cup matches.
