The Texaco Cup 1971

PAGECRESTSponsored by the Texaco Oil Company, this competition ran for five seasons from the start of 1970-71 and it featured invited clubs from the British Isles who were not involved in European competition. Town competed for the only time during the 1971-72 campaign and were eliminated in the second round which was probably just as well as they took place during the league season, not as a curtain-raiser or afterwards, so they effectively became a bit of a distraction anyway.

The programmes were effectively the standard ‘home’ issues for each club housed in a generic cover and can be had for about a couple of quid each on eBay.
