Books About Penrith: True Blues: A history of Penrith Football Club 1894-1994, by John Hurst

Local history books from the 80s and 90s can often be rare as hens' teeth. They tend to have a low, one-time-only print run of a few hundred copies, sell locally over the next year or so, and end up on the shelves of people who are still alive today and therefore disinclined to let them go. As a result, if you want to get hold of, say, True Blues: A history of Penrith Football Club 1894-1994, you'll be lucky to find it. I can find one solitary copy for sale online. The Little Shop now has the second copy in the country currently for sale (and yes, it's cheaper). 

Like the best local history books, John Hurst's record of Penrith F. C.'s first century is a "category killer": it does the job so well, there's no need for anyone else to ever do it again.

  3. Formed in 1879 by members of the church on Star road, West Kensington makes Fulham the oldest club in London. It was here that schoolboys kicked a ball around to each other on ramshackle playing fields that established the English club we all know today.See more.
