  1. What a fantastic archive this is - I was a regular buyer of Soccer Action back in the 80's - it was a great little paper and invaluable in the pre-internet days as a way of keeping up with the local scene and the international stuff. You've gone to a lot of effort putting these up and just wanted to let you know someone appreciates it - maybe I'll even find those letters I got published.

  2. Thanks for the kind words. At the current rate I'd expect everything that I have for 1976 and 1982 to be up by the end of the year. While I seek out filling in the gaps I have in those years, I'll start on 1977 and 1983.

  7. Ah yes - October 30 1985 - there's one of my letters though I can't even recall writing that one I must say - not surprising I suppose considering it was 31 years ago!

  8. This is great stuff. Keep it up.

    Just one query. Was there another soccer newspaper after this? I can't remember what it was called, maybe Soccer Star? It was from Melbourne. I had heaps of issues because it had junior results from when I played, but my dad threw them all out many years ago. Shame, would have been nice to look back on.

    1. It would have been around 1988, 1989?

    2. Yes Les Shorrock started up Soccer Star when Soccer Action ceased. You can find some issues of it on the My World Is Round site here: https://www.facebook.com/myworldisround/

  9. Terrific work Mark. I was actually offered a job at this paper by the great Laurie Schwab after he published some of my articles. You are bringing back some special memories. Thanks
