Just to re-iterate what Riggy has said , and to point out that the programme has traditionally struggled to break even in previous seasons. I think the Trust's new design will be a really worthwhile read, so please buy one & help club funds at the same time. Any feedback on the end product would be welcome.

Lions in the Great War    :  Club historian Ian Jackson takes a look at the Lions in the First World War.




 Wacko Jacko's a reet good lad, but I thought that title ('Club historian') only applied to SW.


Seriously folks, I'm looking forward to getting my paws on the new programme.
