20 Year Special Edition On Way
inancienttimes.co.uk, August 27, 2017

We are pleased to announce that plans are at an early stage to produce a special 20 year anniversary edition of the fanzine, to be released in April 2018.

Our fanzine was first published in March 1998 for the Stags home game with Shrewsbury Town, and has so far spanned 18 issues to date.

After a 12 year absence since retiring as editor, Michael brought back the fanzine for what was planned as a truly one off edition following the sad passing of good friend and Stags legendary supporter Chris Taylor,

‘Issue 18’ was given away FREE for the Hartlepool away game on April 2nd 2016, it has since been available online for anyone to read.

Our new Special edition will once again be FREE to anyone joining us on the last away game of the season trip to Yeovil, where our holiday makers will be given a printed version, again in full colour.

The edition will also be available online again upon our return.

We have no doubt, it will be just as bad as the previous 18 issues, we wouldn’t want it other way.

Michael told this website “The response to our return for the Hartlepool trip, was out of this world, I was very humbled to receive such praise for not only the event we put on, but also the response to the fanzine as well.”

“It was always in the back of my mind we were on the verge of our 20th year anniversary, so it can’t be ignored, like most bands getting back together, we need to do someting in our history to mark the occasion.”

“What could be better, by making our Chris Taylor 2018 event, into something truly to remember, with this special edition just another add on, to what is looking like our best idea to date.”
