Football League Election Brochure 1964

Before promotion and relegation there was a vote by the Football League on teams that could be “elected”.

This is a 16 page brochure on the merits of why Chelmsford City FC should be granted  Football League status. 

A very interesting read – back then we averaged 5,100 per game.
