Book Title

The title of my new book is taken from a announcement that Bob Oakes, the Yorkshire County Secretary, made  to the Yorkshire Post newspaper on the 13th September 1939.

'At the moment there is little that can be done officially, but if thirty people can find a football and a field then let them play by all means'

This positive announcement must have encouraged a number of clubs to re-start as by the end of November 1939 more than half the clubs in membership of the Yorkshire Rugby Football Union had begun to play regular fixtures.
