It’s been a wonderful year in the world of BackPageFootball and we really couldn’t have done it without our strong team of writers, readers and listeners.
At the beginning of 2011 we launched our ‘Top 50 Players in the World’ feature that, to our surprise, became extremely popular, and it coincided nicely with a slick new design which we unveiled in February.
As the year went on, we welcomed on board the good folk at Setanta Sports as our major sponsor for both the website and our Hold the BackPage podcast which made its refreshed and revamped return.
The quantity and quality of our articles has also improved massively over the past 12 months as we continue to diversify into all areas of the game.
In the last week or so we managed to crack the 10,000 follower mark on Twitter which is a massive achievement for what is still an independent, non-profit making blog.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed, whether that was through a 5000 word article, a ‘Like’ on Facebook, or a simple retweet; we appreciate all the support.
We’re looking forward to 2012 already!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Kevin, Neil, Ollie and all at BackPageFootball
