Episode 98: Deportivo Prat v Lord Cochrane, handshakes in Mongolia & guest Dr Alexander Jackson

Deploying a white Crème Egg as a game-changer, magazine editor Andy Lyons, writer Harry Pearson and host Daniel Gray discuss Football in Far-Flung Places, from the Naval Frigate Captains’ Derby to the Well-Padded Hand of God via a Patagonian mystery and the Bellboys of St Helena. Magazine Deputy Editor Ffion Thomas previews WSC issue 440, Record Breakers brings us a tune from Tokyo, and we continue our sprightly feature The Final Third, in which a guest contributes a match, a player and an object to the WSC Museum of Football. Joining Dan as our visiting curator this time is an actual curator – Dr Alexander Jackson of the National Football Museum, also the author of Football’s Great War.
