F.A. News / Football News           

 

F.A. News was first published as long ago as 1946 (initially as "F.A. Bulletin", changing its title to F.A. News in 1951), and has appeared in various formats down the years.  We have recently sold many of the later colour A4 format issues from between 1972 and 1976, but can now offer a number of the smaller sized issues from the 1950's and 1960's. 

 

Where applicable, the listings against each date refer to colour pictures on the front cover/centre/back cover/other page, other page etc, on the later issues, while details of the black & white cover pictures are listed on the earlier issues.

 

ALL MAGAZINES IN THIS SECTION FROM THE 1950's & 1960's ARE PRICED AT £5 EACH, WHILE THE REMAINING LATER 1970'S A4 FORMAT ISSSUES ARE PRICED AT £3 EACH.
