End of an Era as Walsall Advertiser Bids Farewell

Wednesday 28th February 2018

For around 156 years, the award winning Walsall Advertiser has kept the folk of Walsall Town and its surrounding boroughs up-to-date with all the latest news from around the local area, including excellent coverage of Walsall Football Club, formerly known as Walsall Town Swifts following the amalgamation of Walsall Town FC and Walsall Swifts FC and in its later years, for its support of the Trust with its publication of our own column throughout the football season. Sadly we have recently heard that current owners Trinity Mirror Group have decided to cease publication of the towns last remaining 'free' local weekly newspaper and that its final publication is set for this Spring.

First released in 1862 under the name of 'The Walsall Advertiser and Newspaper', shortening its name to 'The Walsall Advertiser' in 1892, the final issue of the newspaper is 'expected' to be published on Thursday 29th March 2018, though this is yet to be confirmed.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff of Walsall Advertiser for their time and coverage of our beloved football team over the years and for allowing us to publish our own column throughout the football season. We would especially like to thank Michael Beardmore for his help with the publication of the Trust column and for his excellent correspondence with the Trust Board; working with Michael is something that will certainly be missed by the members of the Board.

We wish everyone connected with The Walsall Advertiser all the very best for the future and hope that which ever path they decide to take from here on in is a great success.
