The Story of the Cigarette Card

In 1936 the Ardath Tobacco Company (later to be subsumed to Imperial Tobacco) ran a series of “cigarette cards” (for the younger readers these were the forerunners of today’s “famous” Panini stickers). Series A of these cards contained “Lancashire Football Teams”, which in the main they were but the list contains a number of oddities such as Barrow RLFC and New Brighton  RUFC which are neither Association Football Teams nor in Lancashire. But pride of place goes to card no.107 which is the MRUFC team of 1936/7 and celebrates the clubs winning of the Crewe Sevens two years on the trot.
