Mark Metcalf on the origins of the Football League

Author Mark Metcalf joined the WAGU boys in August 2013, on the eve of a very special weekend in the Football League. To celebrate the league’s 125th anniversary, Mark talks to us about his most recent book, called β€˜The Origins of the Football League: The First Season 1888/89’.

He explains how the competition was born and tells us who REALLY scored the first ever Football League goal.
