Goal-Post is a new anthology collecting the very best Victorian football writing, covering the birth and development of the world's greatest game, and written by those who were there to witness it. This is a collection of contemporary articles and extracts featuring some of the players, officials, clubs and matches that helped shape and define football. In making these valuable, informative and entertaining pieces of writing accessible and available to the modern reader, Goal-Post aims to provide a flavour of what it must have been like to have enjoyed football in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Included in this volume are: CW Alcock on football tactics; Interviews with England captains Tinsley Lindley and GO Smith; Montague Shearman's history of football; Frank Brettell and the making of Tottenham Hotspur; The first international football match, Scotland vs England; David Drummond Bone on football in Scotland; The Newton Heath libel scandal; Calcio, or football in Italy by Helen Zimmern; Football by electric light; The 1888 FA Cup Final, West Bromwich Albion vs Preston North End; Henry Leach on life as a travelling football reporter; And much more.
