I am sorting out my collection of football programmes to sell and I came across this article in a magazine called Football League Review, which used to be given away as an insert in most clubs' match programmes. By chance, I opened one which is exactly 50 years old this month and features Dave Russell. Dave was our first successful post war manager and is remembered fondly by fans of my age. He changed our colours from the old blue to a distinctive white (in homage to Real Madrid), oversaw the modernisation of the ground and managed our first promotion out of the fourth tier. Let's hope that's an omen!
