I wanted to let NSCers know that I've started a blog called The Goldstone Wrap at www.thegoldstonewrap.com.

The blog will feature Brighton & Hove Albion-related magazine cuttings, photos, football stickers and cards, excerpts from match programmes, leisure wear, fixture cards, and other bits and pieces from yesteryear. The articles will be succinct. I will let the images evoke your memories rather than write essays.

Please have a look. If you are interested, please click the 'Follow' button to subscribe to updates of the site. I endeavour to have new, short entries on a daily basis.

Also, if you have any Albion-related stuff, I would be grateful if you could post it on here or PM me.

Thanks!

Also, if you do a blog relating to BHAFC, please let me know the link... and if anyone has advice on how to grow a blog so it is widely known and doesn't lose its momentum, that'd be welcome too!

Was that a page torn out of Match magazine? Brings back memories as it was on my Bedroom wall in the 80s.

Certainly was! Plenty of other items from Match from those times coming up in the blog... you might recognise a few of them. Were you more Match or Shoot! or both?

I was originally into Match as I bought the first issues which came with quizzes on free floppy 45 records. Love to know what happened to them, I had them for years before they disappeared.

Good start! I used to get Match delivered. Felt that they gave greater exposure to the 'lesser' clubs than Shoot that just mainly concentrated on the top clubs and players. That was from the mid 80s onwards...
