Just over a week ago we started a competition for a chance to win one of two copies of ‘Mild and Bitter were the days’ by Ken Barlow, here are the winners.

We set the question of:

We won our first football league game at Springfield Park on the 13th September 1978 – Which team was it against, what was the score and who scored???

Of the correct entries, two names have been drawn out of the hat and (drum roll) we’re pleased to announce that Neil Atherton and Ben Wilkinson will both have a copy of “Mild and Bitter were the days” by Ken Barlow sent to them.

Just because you didn’t win the competition prise doesn’t mean you can’t get your hands on a copy, just visit the website www.mildandbitter.co.uk for full details on how you can get yours.

Watch out for a chance to get your hands on a copy of Dave Whelan’s autobiography “Playing to Win”, both books are available from Waterstones and other good book stores (plus some bad ones).
