Arsenal On This Day, 14th February 1970

Reserve team football seems to place Premier League clubs in a quandry. Goodness alone knows why since it all used to work pretty well with the Football Combination for Southern clubs whilst their Midlands and Northern peers had the Central League.

Were it to exist today in a similar spirit, this match report from 1970 might not be such a curio. As it is, few other reserve matches received such fulsome attention from the national press.
