Nostalgia: Glossop’s glory days

We have a rather faded photograph of what could be the Glossop FC team that finished runners-up to Manchester City and were promoted to the Second Division of the Football League at the end of the 1988-89 season.

We believe the photograph was taken ‘around about’ 1898 in front of what appears to be the former pavilion at North Road, which at the time the football club shared with the town’s cricket club.

It was a memorable time for Glossop FC, who, in 1899 started their one and only season in the First Division with the likes of Chelsea, Preston North End, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers visiting Glossop.
