Matlock's big day down Wembley way

A revised edition of a commemorative book about Matlock Town football club, written by Don Hale – editor of the Matlock Mercury – has been published.

Called “Down Wembley Way”, the book recalls the halcyon days of the “Gladiators” glory years when they travelled to Wembley to claim the FA Trophy with a 4-0 win over Scarborough.

The book is packed with photographs – some dating back 50 years. A number of copies of the book were autographed by members of the cup-winning squad when they attended a reunion dinner in Matlock a couple of months ago.

The revised copies of the book cost £5.99. For more information, e-mail the newspaper.
