Steve's UK NLPD News Bulletin - No. 24: June 2022...Recent additions to database...


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) Not a new club for the database, but this Ross County programme from 1948 is an EKI graphic by some 30 years! These old programmes look just the part to me, and there is plenty of content amongst the wonderful adverts too. (2) A more up to date Scottish programme comes from Kilsyth Athletic from their debut in the West of Scotland League. Not too sure if they issued regularly but this basic 4-pager is an excellent start. (3) Another youth team next from 1992. Lordswood United FC were a Southampton based club who produced this smashing little programme for every game.



Programme covers (left to right): (4) Programmes from Northern Irish clubs seem difficult to obtain on this side of the water for some reason. I did get this effort though from 2008 as Desertmartin FC entertain Glentoran in a pre-season. Pre-season games are often a great source of programmes from clubs who don't normally issue. (5) Next, a phoenix club of a phoenix club! After Southwick folded in 2020, Southwick 1882 were quickly formed but infighting saw the management and team leave shortly afterwards to form AFC Southwick. Sadly they have in turn folded at the end of this season. (6) I reckon that this Beesix FC programme is another produced at the time by visitors South Liverpool. They were responsible for a god few one-off away programmes in the 90's. Not a bad effort though even if most of the content is about South Liverpool.  



Programme covers (left to right): (7) The highlight of my watching season was discovering Trefonen FC. Shropshire based but playing in the Welsh system, they have been issuing for ages but nobody knew. (8) Quite a few new issuers from Wales this year with Bryn Rovers being my featured programme. FAW Trophy match v Giants Grave. (9) Lastly, Eastern Counties new boys UEA issued regularly in their debut season, but have since resigned. This makes their programme another tricky one to get hold of.
