In one of the piles of donated programmes is a 1969 Castelford v Salford Callenge Cup Final programme from Wembley. Would anyone be interested in this programme for a donation to the Ground Development Fund? You ...

Re: Old Darlo Programmes

Whilst we gave had no games and obviously no programme shop at Quaker retail, I have been on a couple of programme groups on Facebook. In a couple of months I have raised over £350 in selling programmes to people around the country. I have programmes from all clubs and it's amazing that I have some ...

Re: Leamington at home

Common sense indeed. The news is full of how bad tomorrow will be, so why ask a team to travel so far just to turn them round when they get here

It has been a while since I posted an update on our fans generosity. This year, we have been selling old programmes in the Quaker retail unit on match days, which has all gone into the donation buckets on match days. So as it stands, we have taken £2,743. So thank you everyone who has thrown in thei...

Re: old programmes

If someone would like to start and list 2500 programmes then that would be fantastic.

I just don't have the time.

That is why I would ask people to pop into Quaker retail on match days and see what we have and if there is something more specific, then let us know and we will have a look.

I also have been selling some of the older programmes on facebook and have raised about £90 on there also. We have Darlo home and away programmes going back to the late 50's...

Me and my mate got the train to Sheffield and went to Hillsborough to watch Sheff Wed play Sheff Utd in the league cup first round first leg, which was an 11am kick off. When that finished, we hot footed it down to the station to c...

Re: old programmes

The insert most probably was the 'entry fee' team sheet. I have come across this programme once or twice over the years, but not with the 'teamsheet' included. Probably because they were thrown away once fans entered the ground as you could still buy the official programme. I cant remember attending...
