On 5 April 2014 a book will be published to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the passing of the English amateur international football team, which competed from 1906 to 1974.
The term “amateur” was a way of describing non-paid footballers but amateurs and professionals (paid players) simply became “players” when both terms were abolished in 1974 and so came to and end 68 years of amateur international football in England.
The book will contain a who’s who of the near 600 footballers to have played for the team plus line-ups of every game played and host of other statistics.
If you are related to, or know someone that played for the England amateur team, please contact the author Mark Chapman.
I am happy to answer any queries you may have regarding England’s amateur international football side.
