This page records mentions of this website and work I have done.  I have included this page mainly to prove to my parents that I am doing something in retirement other than watch football and drink real ale.

Roger Wash, the Club Historian, kindly mentioned the website in the Burton Albion programme of 11th April 2015.

One of the breakthoughs in my research was contacting Peterhouse, Cambridge University about the records of J.C. and E. H. Lomax.  A wonderful man named Philip Pattenden, a Lutonian, provided me with photos (and other useful information) which helped me identify the brothers in the 1889 team photo and inspired me.  In exchange for his help, I agreed to write an article on the brothers’ lives for the Peterhouse year book.  This was published in 2016.

I helped Paul Brown in a small way on his article on the penalty kick in “When Saturday Comes” issue 363.
