Woolwich Arsenal: the club that changed football

There are about 40 copies of this book left, after which there won’t be any more new copies available: the book will not be reprinted.

This book offers the only complete and comprehensive story of Arsenal’s years in the Football League from 1893 to 1915 when it played first at Plumstead and then at Highbury, under the name Woolwich Arsenal FC.

This volume contains previously lost revelations about the split within the club that nearly destroyed Arsenal, the inside story of the rescue of the club by Henry Norris, the instigation of mass away support, and the creation of the first ever football ground designed for the supporter who lived some miles from the stadium, rather than just for the fans who lived close by.  It also includes details of players, shareholders and directors from the era.

The price is £14.95 plus £2 delivery in the UK.

Making the Arsenal

This is the story of Arsenal in 1910 – the year the modern Arsenal club was born – told through the eyes of a fictional young journalist who is given the task of covering Arsenal for the daily paper.   With the club effectively bankrupt and having no way to continue into the new season an extraordinary plan was put forward – to merge Woolwich Arsenal with Fulham.

And that plan nearly came to pass and although the merger never happened  questions remain about what was going on in 1910 that made the merger of these long-established clubs seem a viable idea.

“Making the Arsenal” is the first novel about Arsenal since the “Arsenal Stadium Mystery” and it not only tells the tale of Arsenal in that year, but of everything that was going on around them. 

The price of the book is £12.99.   Delivery within the UK is £2.00.

Please note that the price remains at £2.00 irrespective of whether you order one or both books, and remains the same irrespective of how many copies are ordered.
