Barnet FC Cartoons

Page 1 of 2

John Adkins (aka Village) has been spending his spare time scouring the local libraries' old newspapers seeking out snippets on Barnet FC.

Among the interesting items that he has found are these cartoons, which ran in the Barnet Press in the 1937-38 season. They were drawn by a certain Mr Finch, although the first cartoon points out this is nothing to do with Lester Finch, who was then the Barnet captain (and is somewhat of a legend).

The first six take us up to Christmas day 1937 (they used to play on Christmas days in those days, you know!). John has helpully written the competition and score of each game on the cartoon to put it into context.
