Fanzine of the Year award: United We Stand

Posted 17 Dec 2019

The Football Supporters Association is the national, democratic, representative body for football supporters in England and Wales.

For the 2017-18 season,  more than 366,000 votes were cast across ten categories including Men’s Player of the Year, Writer of the Year, Podcast of the Year and more.

This month Rick Baxter, our creative director received the Fanzine of the Year award on behalf of "United We Stand" fanzine. Rick has been producing the cover artwork since 2012 when he saw a request on the fanzine forum to produce some artwork for the United We Stand Summer Special. They loved it so much that they asked him to produce another one for the new season and he has not stopped since. 

I was so pleased for everyone involved in the fanzine from contributors to the lads selling outside Old Trafford every game. We just missed out on the award last year so I had a good feeling that we’d win especially with it being the 30th anniversary of the fanzine."

The FSA Awards event was great. The Tower of London put on a brilliant three course meal and plenty of “refreshments”. Rick mentions that having attended the awards for the past two years he has made some brilliant connections with people involved in football at supporter level.

His favourite cover is this one. The 93-94 team was his favourite ever United team and to get the players to fit so perfectly with the original famous Lunch Atop A Skyscraper photo was a brilliant idea that he's glad came out the way it did.
