Gunflash needs you help...

Last updated : 03 February 2009 By Philip Branigan

All of us connected to Gunflash are very proud of our fanzine''s history and consider Gunflash itself to be virtually an institution - the flagship of the Supporters Club branch - AFSC London.

However, the very existence of Gunflash is currently under very serious threat because it is considered by some not to be financially viable.

The fact that it was an Arsenal publication that paved the way for football fanzines is one that should be revered by all Gooners. We are very quick to remind Chelski supporters that their CLUB has no history, but a very significant place in the history books is held by something created by ARSENAL FANS, but here we are facing the prospect of allowing it to be thrown away! Ironically, it is a SMALL number of Arsenal Supporters that have only been on the scene for a mere fraction of the time that Gunflash has graced the terraces that are trying to destroy it.

We are determined not to allow this to happen and are therefore making a concerted effort to ensure its survival and are looking for your help to do so.


1) When you buy your copy of Gunflash, why not buy an extra one and give/sell it to a mate that might not know of it. (Where have they been hiding for the past 60 years?)

2) We desperately need people to help sell Gunflash. We are the only fanzine that has permission to be sold inside The Emirates Stadium. Please call into the club and pick up some copies to sell on matchday. The commission that you earn could pay for more than you think.

3) We are also keen to hear from any AFSC member or Gunflash reader that has experience in marketing. We recognise that we are lacking in in this department and would welcome any Gooner that could help steer us in this area aboard the Gunflash team.

Email if you can help in any way.
