About The Match2Match Series


Each volume is dedicated to a single season, with comprehensive coverage of first team and for the first time, line-ups of the Reserve and Junior teams.

The books are written by Paul Nagel, with Tony Park providing a valuable contribution on the reserve and junior sides. The book design, by Tim Ashmore, is inspired by United's iconic match programme from the Fifties and early Sixties, and sized accordingly (148mm x 210mm).

The books follow a yearbook format; each has a soft cover and is perfect bound, with an average of 190 pages.

Each volume includes sections covering:

Publication Schedule:

The Match2Match volumes are not published in chronological order. Although our aim is to produce three or four voulmes a year this is entirely dependent on the research. The biggest problem is confirming the line-ups for the 'A' and 'B' team games, and for a handful of games it proves to be impossible. Only when every source has been exhausted do we publish.
