  1. are you using a WordPress blogroll widget or plugin? If so, that probably only allows you to link to other WordPress blogs! No worries anyway, I’ll still list you on ours. Keep up the great work 🙂

    Sorry to contact you via this site but could you let me have some info. It’s not something that a Southend fan wants reminding about but do you know what the attendance was at the Sheffield Wednesday v Southend match in April 1976?

    Cheers

    Belated thanks for the attendance information and congratulations on your website. At the moment me and my son travel all over the West Country taking in new non-League grounds (and eating too many pasties). When I can get at my pension I’ll probably be going further afield.

    I’m putting together a book of old interviews with former footballers. One of these spent the 1953-54 season at Southend – Tommy Lowder. I’d really like to include one or two action photos from Tommy’s time at Southend. Can you help?

    Thanks.

  4. Hi Peter,
    Have just read your excellent article in Football Weekends & am contacting you to register my interest in a future Serbian, or any other mainland Europe, Groundhop you may organise in the future.
    I know it says follow you on twitter for any news on this but I am a rare breed in that I do not use any social media at all and I have found your / this website which I thought I would try and contact you through instead!

  5. Hi Peter, we’re doing a piece on a few clubs that have disappeared in the next issue of When Saturday Comes and were wondering if you’d have any pics of Leyton FC and Horwich RMI as well as the Rossendale pics I spotted on your site?

    Many thanks,

    Joern Kroeger, Art Editor, WSC

  6. Hi Peter,
    I run a South Shields FC fansite, would I be able to use one of your images of Frenchfield Park Penrith in a match preview article on my site? I’m more than happy to credit you and link back to your site.
    Thanks,
    Lee

  7. Hi Peter,
    I’ve written a book titled All Aboard the Bradford Train – funnily enough about Bradford City and trains. Stumbled across your website and your pictures from FC Sobemai caught my eye – intriguing, interesting and amusing and would like to somehow work them into my narrative – not sure if it’ll work so not guarantees but if it does could I use your images with appropriate acknowledgement/credit.
    Thanks
    Andrew

  8. Peter, I’m a publisher of small books on things most readers aren’t interested in. My latest on the stocks is by Jack Rollin, on Chelmsford City’s brief and glorious 1938-1940 period. Your two pix of New Whittle Street would look good in the book, and (if Jack agrees of course) I’d like to include your piece about the ground and the old boy you met. Under your name of course. Regards, Tony

  9. Many thanks Peter; I’ll pass on your reply to Jack. I’m a couple of months away from publication and will send you a copy then. if you house number is 12 squared and your postcode ends in EX then I find you are on my list already. Otherwise please email me your address to soccerdata@gmail.com
