Thousands of free programmes


Recommended Posts

I have decided to let my programme collection (about 9,000) go for free since it looks like I will never be able to sell them. Too many to list but just about every club including amateurs and defunct clubs. Internationals and hundreds of cup finals and semi-finals. If you need something to complete your collection let me know and if I have it - you can have it/them if you are arrange collection. I've already helped a Salford fan in Brazil complete his collection, and saw the Celtic Crusaders .v. Brisbane Broncos programme go to a fan in Brisbane. I am also donating 379 Eccles/ Salford City Roosters issues back to the club. I have somebody interested in my Oldham St. Annes, Saddleworth Rangers, Blackpool Galdiators and Trafford Borough programmes but all the rest are up for grabs.

I just had a message from a friend of mine who had a collection of 7.000 progs back to the 1940's. I remember him moving a long way to a much smaller place a couple of years ago and asking on here if anybody wanted his programmes? I just asked him what he did with them in the end. They went to landfill. I can't do that. It would be like throwing half of my life in the bin.

Bare with me Cyril while I check but I reckon I have 15 of those programmes. My lists are not recorded by full date, just season and competition so I need to physically dig them out and check dates. If you are interested I have an A team sheet .v. Salford in 2000 (I went to that) and the 1992-93 A team programme .v. Hull A in the Yorkshire senior cup final. If you give me a list of aways try to give just season and competition. I will have most Salford, Swinton and Celtic Crusaders but I also have lots of Leeds, leigh and Hull KR. I have lots from every other club too including defunct clubs. I will also have many Bradford finals and semi-finals and all cup comps, including Wembley 1948. I will come back and confirm which homes I have. If you can collect them you can have them.

The Salford progs could be taken by other people soon if you don't ask me to put them aside Cyril and I'm not sure if I have already promised the 1959 Swinton prog to somebody. I also have loads of cup semi-finals and finals. Let me know if you want me to get any of these out for you asap mate.

From your list Cyril I have got Salford (7/12/75), Fulham 28/04/82 (postponed from 27/12/81), Southend 24/2/85 (postponed from 10/02/85), Castleford 9/1/93, Workington 31/1/93, Sheffield 6/11/94 & Swinton 4/9/16. Check your dates mate. I am certain some of them are wrong. I think they are all original dates and don't account for postponements? I have some of the programmes from the seasons you want but not on the dates you quote. Example - You have St. Helens home on 19/12/82 but Bradford played at Widnes that day in the JPT. I have the programme for the St. Helens game that season on 12/04/83. You also have Oldham at home on 04/12/88 but I have a programme on that date .v. Leigh in the JPT? I have put these on one side for you know. Look through the aways to see if you want any of those and I will put them together. Also let me know if you are missing any cup finals and semi-finals.

I will get all the homes and aways together that you want Cyril and I will include the ones where I think the dates changed due to postponements and they we will sort something out. I live in Winton, which is Eccles not far off the Worsley junction of the M60 but I travel around a fair bit watching non league football. been through Bradford 3 times lately to Ilkley, Steeton and Guisley. I will most likely be at the Swinton .v. Bradford game too but I don't know when that is at the moment. We will sort it after I sort out your programme wants mate.
