Tyke Travels II – 2000/01

Tyke Travels I had included just a few pictures of programme covers but the second edition pushed the boat out with action pictures on the cover and two Photo File sections inside.
Emley’s Charlie Bradshaw and Rob Hanby, of Frickley Athletic, were front cover guys, while the back featured images of Sheffield FC’s grounds at the Coach and Horses and the Don Valley Stadium.
There was also a star on page three with a picture of Armthorpe lad-made-good Kevin Keegan. The England manager provided the foreword.
The introduction mourned the failure of Grimethorpe Miners Welfare and South Bank to make it into the new century, but welcomed new clubs Dinnington Town, Fryston MW and congratulated recently re-formed Goole and Bridlington Town on their debut successes.
Other new boys on the block were the Humber Premier League – bridging the gap between the East Riding’s two district leagues and the Northern Counties East League – and the Non-League Paper.
A new feature was a graphic of how the Yorkshire Pyramid worked, while the rapid expansion of the internet saw a full page offering a multitude of website at all levels of the game.
Reviews of the first edition from various regions and national publications provided plenty of nice words to complete things.
