One of the good things about the Blue Mail & the Argus was they printed a huge amount of local sport news including football. when I was playing I used to buy both just to see if there was a report or notes about my team.
They printed results from nearly all or if not all the amateur leagues in Birmingham.

Hi my uncle appeared on the front cover of the sports argus for the 1956 cup final. He was photographed at Snow Hill station waiting to catch the train. He was wearing a hand knitted jumper with the names of all the players knitted into it!  Would anyone have a copy of this they could let us have a photocopy of?
