A4-sized paperback, illustrated

This book is the first “complete record” of Fulham FC, before it joined the Football League.  Formed initially as the St Andrew’s Church team, the early years were not reported on, meaning that it is 1883 before the club became more widely known.  Local cup and friendly games followed, and a change of name to Fulham St Andrews in 1886, then to Fulham FC in 1889.  The club joined West London League in 1892 and opened Craven Cottage in 1896 before joining the Southern League, and turning professional, in 1898.

The book includes a narrative account of these early years, biographies of all the players that played between 1896 and 1907, full season-by-season results and line-up grids for these seasons, a complete list of friendly games with line-ups whenever possible, and many match reports from newspapers of the time.  The author acknowledges the contribution of Morgan Phillips to a section on other important people connected to the club’s early development.

 Alex White is a well-known author on Fulham FC topics, with many books on the history of the club. He has been gathering together the material for this book for the last 30 years and is pleased to see it in print at last.

 The book is a large-sized sized paperback book of 160 pages with b/w illustrations and a full colour cover.  The price is £16.  Copies are available from sports booksellers and by post from Tony Brown.  If ordering by post, please send a cheque or postal order for £18 (which includes £2 for UK postage and packing), payable to Tony Brown, to 4 Adrian Close, Toton, Nottingham NG9 6FL.  Trade copies are available from Gardners and Bertrams.
