It was a pleasure to meet Jim Stewart, the publisher of Football Weekends at the recent Stanchion Books book fair in London. I had been aware of the site and the magazine for some time but had never seen a physical copy of the magazine.

I was hugely impressed both by the quality of the writing and the breadth of experiences. In the latest magazine there were in depth guides to Notts County and Newry City, interesting articles about the Barcelona penyas and Italy and much, much more. To be honest what caught my eye was a report by David Powell from Stockholm which is a city I know well and from where I have recently returned. I read it with interest and was genuinely impressed. He saw two games in one weekend _ Hammarby and Djurgarden. The descriptions of the game were interesting and entertaining but I was equally keen to read what he said about Stockholm. It was accurate and fair.

The A4 high-quality gloss magazine is now up to almost 100 editions and a quick scan showed that they have covered pretty much every European country (particularly strong Germany, Spain, Italy) and thirty other countries throughout the world.

The website is equally professional and you can both subscribe and obtain back issues.
I wish Jim and his team continued success.
