Rugby League Programmes

Recommended Posts

I remember a while ago John Spoor asking for old Rugby programmes which the club could sell.

I've had to have a good clear out and have found a few old programmes, do the club still want these programmes?

Good one Shipbuilder. There is a market for this and I remember Barrow soccer doing this a few years ago and making some money.

Problem is, it takes someone to devote time for this...searching Ebay, specialist football markets etc. Myself, i have programmes from a certain football club, some I think are quite valuable, but i can't be bothered with the hassle of selling, and if I knew it would help the club I would be happy to give to the club to raise funds but like I said, it takes time and work for someone to do this. It's not just rugby programmes, perhaps any sporting memorabilia people have and don't know what to do with. Volunteers anyone?

John still sells programmes for the club.  If you can drop them into the Rugby Shop I can pass them on to him for you.

Thanks Jane.

I can confirm that I still have all my contacts to sell on old programmes etc, and in the last 12 months have raised just short of £400 which has been donated into the Ground Development Fund.

Please contact Jane in the Rugby Shop if you require anything picking up from your home, and I will call round to collect them, and give you a quick value. This includes other sports programmes - not just rugby league.

That's great I'll be in with a few programmes although it's been quite difficult once you start looking at Bramley programmes and Fulham v Wigan and there's clubs with funny names like Bradford Northern - no Bulls or Rhinos.

 

Would you take Speedway programmes as well - you can see I've been sorting out my old Barrow Bombers collection ?

Hi Shipbuilder

I take anything sporting as I have built up a number of contacts in other sports over the years!

I am in the shop next Monday if you can get in before then. Thanks for your donation!

Many thanks to Shipbuilder. I picked up your donation this morning and am currently sorting them into the best selling order.

If anybody else wants to clear out their collections, then leave them in the Rugby Shop, and I will pick them up from there, or leave your details with Jane and I will call round to your house. Anything is accepted - RL, soccer, speedway programmes, metal pin badges etc. All profits are donated to the Ground Development Fund.

Thanks to "Shipbuilder" and other supporter's donations, I have given Jane a cheque for £100 this morning to go into the Ground Development Fund. This is going towards the cost of water supply, sink, inlet boiler and pie oven for the refreshment kiosk by the main turnstile, which will mean that the club are able to sell pies on both sides of the ground once having satisfied the essential h & s and food standard requirements.

Keep the programmes and other items coming and you will be able to see what a difference it can make!

Glad to help John, like to stand on the popular side usually but might pop over to the main turnstile area next season to check the pies.

You can tell we're having a good sort out!

Rugby programmes found in cupboards - now it's the loft and I've found about  9 or 10 Rothmans Rugby League year books from the 80's. Are they any use or should they go to the charity shop?

I'm awaiting with interest a reply to you question Shipbuilder because I have a shipload of programmes and other stuff that I could easily sell on Ebay but would rather give to the club to make money on but can John handle all this? Is he still doing this? What is the best way to donate my stuff? Oh, me heads hurtin. Just a thought, but if people were to donate stuff, and it was later announced how much that stuff made for the club, and the people who donated that stuff,  maybe it would encourage people to donate stuff, lol. Where there's stuff, there's money. I know, get stuffed.

Morning Carl

The answer is yes! I will take anything like this and if unable to shift it will take it to a charity shop myself! There is always somebody who wants something!

TMF - the answer to your question is that if I can see that a collection is valuable then I will tell you!  I have sold several collections in the past few years and passed on the proceeds to the owners but asked them politely if they would like to make a contribution to the club, which without fail they have done. I have built up several contacts and sometimes can sell stuff without resorting to e-bay as I know that these collectors want these items.

The other thing to mention is that the RL charity - RLCares are attempting to create a national RL Programme archive - every professional RL club programme since the Second World War. Ex RL CEO Nigel Wood starterd this scheme with his own 20000 programme collection and I am in the process of handing well over 150 Barrow and other club programmes to this archive, along with other items that have been donated over the years.

I hope this answers the questions!

Thanks John, you wouldn't even need to ask me politely, lol. I would just want any monies made go to the club. I'll bring them in. All my stuff is football/club related with I think some jems.

I will be in the Rugby Shop this Wednesday at 10.00am if you wish to bring them in then and I will have a quick look whilst you are there. If not, then leave contact details with Jane or Tracey and I will get back to you. I am looking forward to seeing them!

Barrow were unlucky yesterday at Rochdale having the man sent off in the 1st half was Barrow's downfall, Otherwise I think you would have gone on to win..

Haven't spoken yet to anyone who was there Phil and i'm surprised nobody here has commented but if he was wrong, he was. I agree that probably cost us the match, but that's the way it goes. It's a tough old game.
