As football fans and journalists, we are always looking forward. The next game, goal or victory. But it is also important not to lose sight of history, too.
The matches of yesteryear which live on in the memory, or that wonder-goal which made you forget everything else important in the world for those glorious, euphoric seconds.
We know that Sheffield’s football history rivals any other so this week, we launch Sports Retro - a four-page pull out, placed fittingly inside our existing Full Time sports pages - charting historic moments and memories from our local clubs.
This week, clashes between Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest are in the spotlight plus in our Flashback section, we’ll take a look back at United’s 4-1 win over Leyton orient in January 14 1961. Our back page feature includes both the pursuit and then sale of Sheffield United hero Brian Deane, almost a year apart to the day. So enjoy a weekly trip down memory lane with us as we continue to focus on the future, while celebrating our region’s rich history.
See inside The Star this and every Monday.
