'Shaymen of Halifax' was written and performed by Tommy Degnan for Halifax Town in 1978. The record was produced by Les Johnson and Tony Thwaites for Humber Records.
The still images are taken from the CD 'Halifax Town through the years' produced by Halifax Town Supporters Club. The CD itself contains many, many more quality photos.
The archive video footage is taken from a Calendar report for Yorkshire Television in 1978 about a song Tommy had written for Scotland's World Cup team. Presumably, the Halifax Town song was commissioned after someone at the club had seen this report. Either that or the Tartan troubadour took a detour off the A1 and approached the club himself.
