SO Long Our Home, the Club’s history of Knowsley Road, has been updated and expanded in a special limited hardback edition now available exclusively from the Saints Superstore.
The first edition of So Long Our Home was a sell-out.
This new edition has more stunning pictures and reports from those sad but splendid last days of the Grand Old Lady, including all the drama and high emotion of the final games and all the poignancy of its dismantlement and disappearance.
There is also extensive coverage of the birth and early life of Langtree Park, now acknowledged as the finest club rugby stadium in the world, right up to its triumphant christening in July when the Wigan Warriors were dispatched in thrilling and traditional Saints style in front of a rollicking, rocking full house.
Chairman Eamonn McManus wanted the final and complete record that Knowsley Road so richly deserved, and this is it, once again written by Charles Nevin and researched by Saints historian, Alex Service, with photographs by club photographer Bernard Platt.
What better Christmas present for the Saints fan that has everything?
Fun, joy, sadness, and rich memories – plus the chance to find out exactly what the great Tom van Vollenhoven was thinking as he walked out to open our new home.
