graphite & putty eraser/30x21cm
Post number 900 here on TOoT, & this latest subject features the re-mediated features of Leslaw Cmikiewicz, who was represented in both the FKS & Panini World Cup ’74 sticker albums that provide & subsequently selected for inclusion in the official Poland squad for the tournament, during which he entered the fray as a second-half substitute in 6 of the Poles’ 7 matches, missing only a run-out against Sweden in the first of the Second Round group fixtures.
In contemporary footballing developments, congratulations this weekend are in order to US Hostert on the occasion of their first win of the season back in the top flight in Luxembourg, 2- 1 over FC Wiltz, the only team at the time below Hostert in the division, but those are the must-win matches.
We’re also celebrating another first league win of the season in Luxembourg, down the divisions, for our very favourites Kischpelt Welwerwolz or Wilwerwitz, a thumping 4 – 0 triumph against US Rambrouch, a most edifying result.
