Unpublished Guardian letter regarding Rebel Road project

Mark Metcalf

The Guardian was recently good enough to carry a massive piece on my co-authored football book at https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/jul/28/forgotten-story-fred-spiksley-simon-burnton

I hope you may include this in the letters page.

Regards the recent letters on the need to remember events at Peterloo in 1819,  Stoke in 1842 and Featherstone in 1893 then readers may be interested in the Unite Education Rebel Road website that contains a wealth of information on trade union and labour movement heroes and events that are publicly commemorated. The site has inspired a number of commemorative events including two extremely well attended occasions this year in Halifax to honour the six people killed by the military in the town in 1842 and for which plans to mount a plaque are advancing.
