John Madeley's Town tribute

9 posts in this topic

Erstwhile Town chairman John Madeley wrote a poem about his team of the time. It appeared in The Courier full of predictable rhyming couplets I seem to remember. Anyone got a copy they can post here? Yes, a long shot I know! Thanks in advance!

Shaymus is probably your best bet. The library have all the old copies of the Courier if ou can be bothered training through them all.

It would give me a good excuse to visit the new library. I've remember browsing the microfiche at the old library many years ago on the trail of something or other Halifax Town related. Don't really know why I want to find it! It's just stuck in my mind over the last 30 years. I've pretty much everything from '86-'90 stuck in scrapbooks and I think the poem was just before then. Yes, I was a bit obsessional back in the day! Thanks for your reply.

Brilliant! Hope it didn't take you too long to find. It's actually better than I remembered! Thanks again!

Cringeworthy at best, I'd say.
