We are pleased to announce the return of the annual WSC writers' competition, in memory of contributor David Wangerin. Entrants are invited to submit an article of between 800 and 1,500 words, about any aspect of the 2017-18 football season. The award was David's idea and he requested that it should only be open to amateur writers, ie those who don't make their living from writing. The closing date for submissions is Monday, May 21 2018.
