Podcast 174: Winning At Dominoes 5 – Accrington & Colne, Touched By The Hand of Burnley

by | Aug 20, 2019

It’s Tuesday morning, so it must be time for another edition of Winning At Dominoes, our weekly podcast in which I pull a story – or, in this case, two stories – from the history of the game and retell it. Lancashire is one of the ancestral homes of football in England, but its clubs have a long history of financial struggle, going all the way back to the nineteenth century. This week we have the story of two football clubs fourteen miles apart, who both collapsed financially under very different circumstances and were reborn – Accrington Stanley and Colne Dynamoes. Both clubs had dealings with one of the bigger clubs in the area when they were close to death, but even that club was a very different beast when one collapsed to when the other did. 

There’s a bunch of different ways in which you can subscribe to the 200% podcast, of course. You can do so through Spotify, which you can find right here, and you can download this week’s to listen to at your leisure by right-clicking and saving here, whilst the podcast RSS feed is here and you can subscribe through Itunes here. Please rate and review if you appreciate what we do!

And if you’re wondering about any other ways in which you can prevent us from wasting away and ultimately starving to death, we also still have our Redbubble shop, for the sartorially minded amongst you, and you can get more 200% podcasts on a variety of different subjects by joining us on Patreon. We even now have a Kofi button, so do feel free to feed me stimulants in order to keep me cracking on in a caffeine-fuelled state of delirium until four o’clock every morning, and many thank yous to those of you who have already been generous enough to donate.
