World’s oldest football club ‘safe for another 150 years’ as the first ever rulebook sells for £881,250

THE uncertain future of the world’s oldest football club is secure after an 1859 rulebook belonging to Sheffield FC sold at auction yesterday for £881,000.

The windfall means the club, founded two years before the rulebook was printed, can continue free of financial headaches.

Club director Bob Dyson said: “The proceeds will allow Sheffield FC to thrive in the future, and continue spreading the gospel of football.”

The money - a record amount paid for football memorabilia - will help pay off debts, improve facilities and, crucially, partially fund plans for a new stadium.

Nick Clegg, Sheffield Hallam MP, told The Star: “Whether you’re an Owl, a Blade or an FC fan, everyone in the city can be proud of our footballing heritage.

“Sheffield FC has been around for more than 150 years and I hope it’ll be around for the next 150 years too.”

See today’s Star for reaction to this story.
