THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

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 2015-16 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 has been extended to May 31, 2016.

The judging panel will be made up of WSC editor Andy Lyons, co-founder Mike Ticher and news editor Tom Hocking. There will be a cash prize of £250 for the winner and the winning article will be published in the magazine over summer.
