about

In July 2011, DB Publishing produced a £25, 688 page, colour history of Halifax Town Football Club. Written by Johnny Maynell, the book tells you everything you need to know about the club right up to the end of season 2010-2011.

For the purposes of the electronic version, the editorial sections of the book have been broken down into three distinct sections so that the reader can pick and choose the individual part of the book that most attracts their interest. These three sections are:1 - The History (including History of the Grounds)2 - The Players and Managers3 - The Matches to Remember

The book also includes 400 pages of statistics, with every team line up, result, attendance and scorers. However the limitations of the current e-book readers means that these cannot be recreated electronically. If you want to see this information then unfortunately it is only available in the hardback format.

Each of the three e-books include the Forewords and the Introduction from the author from the original publication.

Halifax Town was formed in 1911 following a letter by E.A. Jones which appeared in the pages of the Halifax Courier and two subsequent public meetings at the now long since defunct Saddle Hotel. The intention was to build up the club and take it to the higher echelons of the Football League. Instead, the club found itself floundering for much of the time amid poor attendances, poor results and dire financial straits. Some folk might argue the club was not worth the bother. But for those who embraced it over the years, they could not or would not live without it.

Over the years Halifax Town have written themselves into the record books, though not always for the right reasons. The supporters have suffered more than most, for if the yearly struggles were not hard enough to take, then what of the clubs liquidation in 2008? Major successes over 97 years could be counted on two fingers promotion in 1969 and the Conference title in 1998 though the back-to-back promotions the reformed club has achieved under Neil Aspin must not be overlooked.
