Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

Done 2 games a day on many occasions. The first was August 9th 1980. 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...

If you haven't popped in to Quaker retail on match days, then please call in and see the array of programme...

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...
