 Dial Square to Woolwich Arsenal

Dial Square to Woolwich Arsenal

The oft-repeated story of Arsenal FC starting out in life on a mud-heap of a pitch bounded by an open sewer on the Isle of Dogs, may not be true, new research has found.

Although the story has been reprinted in every Arsenal history throughout the last 100 years, research by a group of Arsenal fans has raised serious doubts about whether the match took place.

A groundbreaking booklet outlines the important events during the early years of Arsenal's history. Revealed for the first time is new information about some of the key moments in the Club's early history, as the booklet reveals that some of the key 'facts' that have become established over the years turn out not to be wholly accurate.
Authors, Andy Kelly and Tony Attwood have discovered new information about many of the key events during the Club's early existence, at the same time blowing away many existing myths and inaccuracies.
This booklet, the first in a new series from the Arsenal Independent Supporters' Association, paints a fascinating picture of the events that shaped Arsenal Football Club and highlights the role of previously unknown figures who played a key role in Arsenal's early formation and development.

To purchase the booklet send a cheque for £5 to AISA, PO Box 65011, London N5 9AX (add £1 for delivery to mainland Europe, £2 to rest of the world).
