about

'Out of Our League: Defunct and ex-Football League Teams - Volume Two' is the ultimate guide for football supporters and soccer historians as it contains information about every football team that has ever graced the Football League but no longer does so. It explains why the teams left the League and gives details of their League records, FA Cup records and League Cup records. Notable players and managers are mentioned along with club records and individual player statistics.

Each team has a history section which covers their progress from being founded to their eventual demise at the loss of their Football League status. A section also mentions the rise of subsequent Phoenix Teams and follows their progress up to date. The author has toured England and Wales to record what is left of these clubs and has scoured the country for photographs of the teams, their grounds and mementos. The publication is littered with photos and each individual club has a hand-drawn map of their former and/or current grounds to indicate where they were situated. This gives aficionados an opportunity to visit the sites and to experience a journey back in time. Many followers of the game still think that football was better when it was still a working man's game, and this book allows such memories to flood back.

Volume Two includes the following teams: Leeds City, Lincoln City, Loughborough Town, Macclesfield Town, Maidstone United, Merthyr Town, Middlesbrough Ironopolis, Nelson, New Brighton, New Brighton Tower, Newport County, Northwich Victoria, Rotherham County, Rotherham Town, Rushden & Diamonds, Scarborough, South Shields, Southport, Stalybridge Celtic, Stockport County, Thames, Torquay, Wigan Borough, Wimbledon, Wrexham and Bristol Rovers.
