Halifax Town. The Complete Record 1911-2011
This is the book every loyal Shaymen fan should possess. Featuring club history, player profiles, match summaries and statistics, it is illustrated with photographs throughout, some of which have never been published before.
This book chronicles the history of Halifax Town from its humble beginnings, the highs and lows and everything in between in fascinating detail, as well as profiling all the club's managers, star players, memorable matches, and history of the grounds.
In addition, every game played by both Halifax Town and FC Halifax Town is listed, with season-by-season grids covering the major first-team matches, as are separate lists of every player to have turned out for club.
A second section also covers the formation and first three seasons of FC Halifax Town, thus encapsulating the full 100 years since the original club was formed.
Put simply, this is a book that provides everything any Town fan, and indeed any football fan, would want to know about the club. It is, as the title suggests, the complete record of Halifax Town.
