Which match do you want the report for? They only played Blackpool and Chelsea at home that month.I have looked at the www.11v11.com website which gives me some info i didn't have.
Really need a written match report, sports argus would have been the prime candidate
but will see if the Birmingham Post has any coverage.
Did the Sunday Mercury cover the local football matches also?
Thank you so much Eric - perfect. Just what I needed. All best,It wasn't published through the war, I recall being a paper boy for Billy Kirton's shop on Kingstanding road on the night it was returned to publication, can't be sure of the date but as I was about thirteen/fourteen at the time it must have been 48/49.
