The Great Mother’s Day Poster Find – No 2 Admiral

As is traditional, me Mam came over on Mother’s Day for Sunday dinner.
As usual she got a bunch of flowers and a card, but on this occasion she also came bearing treasure…

After a clear out of the darkest recesses of the loft she had discovered a long lost bag full of football posters… “Are these any good?”
We’ll be sharing them with you over the next few days.

Second up is this Admiral poster.

I vaguely remember that you had to send off to an address printed in Shoot! to get your free copy and would date it somewhere between 1976-77 and 1977-78 before Admiral logos started appearing on sock turnovers.

How many players can you name out of the forty?

If your Mam threw all your stuff out then you should probably buy the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in last year’s Footy Book of the Year. Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
