The Great Mother’s Day Poster Find – No 3 Spar

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.

Today we have this ‘Facts & Figures About Football’ poster, produced by Spar circa 1974.

I had completely forgotten about this, even though it had been blu-tacked to my cupboard door for many years, so it caused me a sharp intake of recognition. Our local village shop was a Spar so I can only guess that it came from there.

Of all our obscure stuff that we have put on here this time I don’t think anyone else will remember this… unless you know differently?!

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
