Highbury is the story of Arsenal Stadium. It is also the story of Arsenal at Highbury. Every football ground is special but in true Orwellian style some are more special than others — Highbury certainly comes into that latter category and this book provides Arsenal fans around the world with a complete keepsake of the ground the club called home for over 90 years.
Many other teams, games and sports have also graced Highbury. The first recorded cricket match under floodlights, Baseball, Rugby Union, Hockey and World Championship Boxing for starters. The stadium has been featured in films and books.
This Third Edition is updated and contains new information and, ten years asks "Was the move from Highbury worth it?”.
Highbury: The Story of Arsenal Stadium is a must for any Arsenal supporter and any football supporter who has a sense of tradition. It is packed with memories that will linger long after playing football at Highbury is a mere memory. Long may the memories live and long may we remember them.
