Charles Buchan, 1961-74


Charles Buchan's Football Monthly continued under his name until August 1971, and was then published simply as Football Monthly for the following two years.


A smaller 'booklet' type magazine appeared as Football Monthly Digest from September 1973 until the last issue in June 1974. It was then replaced by 'Football' which eventually became the 'new' Football Monthly.

Details listed against each date refer to colour posters of front cover/centre pages/back cover/other page, other page etc.
