Football and the First World War

I am currently writing a book on Football and the First World War based on the article of the same name on this website.

I am very keen to contact any football fans who have information about players who joined the army during the First World War.

See reviews of Rob Cavallini's The Wanderers FC, and Around The World In 95 Games.

After a narrative account of Boston United’s achievements in the competition, the book includes results, scorers and line-ups for all their FA Cup games.  Full details of the opposing team are also given.  Match reports of important games are included and a number of appendices include United’s players’ records (appearances and goals) and, for Boston’s opponents, an account of ‘where are they now’ and the leagues they were in when the clubs met in the competition.

The unusual title: "Lay on them backs, Boston" refers to advice shouted out by a Boston fan at a game in the 1950s to encourage Boston's wingers to attack. The book, which boasts a foreword by John Motson, is lavishly illustrated with action photographs, player portraits, programmes and match tickets.  Doug Lowe’s affection for the club is reflected throughout this fine publication which should be required reading for all Boston United fans.
