The Football Supporter
The Football Supporter was the magazine for the National Federation of Supporters Clubs.
Published by Pall Mall ,London SW1.
Launch Editor was Tony Pullein who would end up editing "Football" for IPC in the 1980's.
Interestingly for a football magazine they had Diane Roberts and Gilliane Philips as Fashion Editor and Beauty Editor respectively.
Monthly -Launched in November 1967.
The Football Supporter ran from November 1967 until April 1970 (Volume 3 No 4) when it became the Football Pictorial, which in turn was to marry up with the Football Digest (the last incarnation of the famous Charles Buchans Football Monthly) and turn into "Football" in June 1974. So you can now understand how Tony Pullen ended up moving from one publication to another.
The National Federation of Suporters Clubs in 1994 became The Football Supporters' Federation (FSF) which is the current national supporters' organisation for all football fans comprising over 142,000 individual fans and members of local supporters' organisations from every club in the professional structure and many from the pyramid.
The FSF relaunched Football Supporter magazine on a quarterly basis.
