Great to see such a good attendance and so many eclectic,thought-provoking and informative presentations. Many congratulations to Sam Oldfeld, Dave Day, Mark and the rest of the MMU gang for ensuring it ran so well. Great to see leading historians of sport such as Jeff Hill or Wray Vamplew alongside people from all stages of research, with quite a number of collaborative colleagues from the rest of Europe who did really well to speak so clearly in what is a second or third language. Wish I could do anywhere near so well. Old friends and some new folk with fascinating areas of research all mixing in together. If you didn’t go to this year’s symposium then it is a great two days with some great craik in the evening.
