Below are scans of some of the recent additions to the database. From top left to bottom right they are:-
Programme covers (left to right): (1) Whilst not a
new addition to the database, this pre league Spurs programme recently sold on
Ebay for just 2569 pounds plus postage! Time to check out the loft I think! (2) Queens
University Belfast provided one of the biggest shocks ever in the Irish cup, by
beating Linfield in round 5. They do not issue for league games, but did a
couple for their cup run. (3) Tollington Arms are a Sunday club who issued way
back in 1980, but who have only just come to light for us collectors.
Programme covers (left to right): (4) New issuers in the Devon league this season are Clyst Valley. Excellent
programme, well printed and loads to read make this a super addition to the
ranks of below step six issuers. (5) Hyde Rovers are a youth team from Essex,
and for their U12s match with Heath Park in 1988 they issued this super 16
pages effort for the benefit of all the mums and dads watching their little
treasures. (6) The latest Welsh protest club are Bangor 1876. They only issued a
couple of programmes last season, one of which was for this Welsh Cup tie v
Penycae. The last protest club, FC Nomads of Connahs Quay, have now folded, so
will this new Bangor one fare any better?
Programme covers (left to right): (7) Leafield Ladies
are one of a plethora of new issuers from the Womens National league this
season. The reason being that clubs in the two top divisions must issue, and
those in the next tier of 3 divisions must produce at least a teamsheet. Not a
bad effort at all here with plenty to read inside. (8) One club I had never
heard of before are Bishopmill United from Scotland. They issued for their
Junior cup tie with Kello Rovers in 1997, and as far as I know this is their
only issue to date. (9) The oddly named FC Sez are from the Central Midlands
league. They do not have to issue in their division, but did manage a couple of
programmes for cup ties during the recently curtailed season.
