Although Nelsonís time in the
Football League lasted for just ten seasons, one of those seasons saw them win
the Championship of the Third Division (North).
Their single season in Division Two coincided with one of Manchester
Unitedís visits to that division, so Nelsonís 1-0 win at Old Trafford in
March 1924 can be counted as one of the clubís greatest victories.
Garth Dykes has looked into the playing careers of the nearly 200 men who played
for Nelson in the Football League and has written a detailed account of their
careers. Full line-ups and scorers
grids are included. The book is
well illustrated with player photographs and team groups.
