Topics I've Started

A Flickr gallery for your collection.

24 April 2015 - 11:35 AM

Over on the football progs collectors forum there is a lot of collectors who have scanned their collection and arranged them for viewing in a flickr account (or similar other hosting websites). It looks very time consuming, but some of the results are excellent.


Has any RL collector done this? Thinking about it?

Storing Your Programme collection

10 April 2015 - 10:38 AM

I was thinking about this, because my 2,500 programmes are mostly in ikea cardboard boxes in the spare room. They are not easy for access and take up a fair bit of space. I'd like to do something different but Im not sure what.


Ive seen photos of very impressive collections on this football site...




with bookcases full of binders and special plastic wallets for storage.


How do you store you collection?


What would you like to do?

How did you start collecting?

30 March 2015 - 02:22 PM

When I first started going to matches in the 1970s I always bought and read and kept the programme from the match. Then my cousin gave me a big bag of about 100 old programmes from Fev matches and i was off. Waiting every six weeks or so for the Yorkshire Programmes catalogue to arrive to see what I could tcik off my wants list. First I collected only home matches, then home and away. Then I went back to 1973/4 (two divisions) then back to 1960 then 1955. Before then, it starts to get very pricey. I still need another 20-odd back to 1955.


How about you?

Club Statistics: What to record and how to record

26 March 2015 - 10:29 AM

As mentioned on another thread, many people keep stats about their club. At Featherstone, Chris Heinitz (with help from MLP) spent a lot of time putting together this DVD, to be annually updated.




Many other clubs have impressive websites put together, including:






Others have put together outstanding books, notably Oldham and Swinton among others.


Then there's that very ambitious RL project idea.




What have you/your club done?


What would you like to see done?
