The archives include the original plans submitted when Meadow Lane was first built and a photograph of the first ever stand in construction.
There are also rare pictures of Tommy Lawton meeting club officials on his signing and a team photo of the squad in Barcelona in 1922, extracted from a collection donated by one of the clubs former directors. It also contains his match ticket for a game against Orient in the early 1900’s.
The display case has been put together to mark the importance of the club to this city and help us look ahead to a brighter future.
It is housed in the entrance to the council archives on Wilford Street (next to the Evening Post building) and will remain there until Christmas. All Pies fans are invited to pop in and view the items.
Nick Clark who located and selected the items said: “ County are not just a local institution but a team with international significance as the worlds oldest league club. Its right we commemorate them and show support at this crucial time in their history”
I know the Council took some persuading to put these items on display, so please show them it was worthwhile by popping in and having a look at these archives, again, show this city just what this club means to us!
