Post subject: Obscure Chesterfield programmes
Reply with quote

Hello all

Over the last few years weíve been trying to find out about all Chesterfield matches for which a programme or teamsheet definitely exists

It is at: http://www.cfchistory.com/ and then take the option for Stats & Records then Line-ups. Thereís some general info on that page about how stuff is listed, and the programme info is then on the button for each individual season

We havenít tried to list pre-WW1 because there arenít many that we know to exist, and post-WW2 virtually every first-team match has a programme so we havenít specifically listed those

Two things...

Firstly, if you need to know anything about programmes for your team v Chesterfield then you might well find it on the site. If not then post here

Secondly, if you know of any obscure Chesterfield matches that we donít have any info for then can you please post it here?

ďObscureĒ is anything pre-1945, plus non-first team games after that. We are particularly interested in:

Yorkshire League (our A team)
North Midlands League (our reserves)
Northern Intermediate League (our youth team)

Thanks for reading this, hope we can help each other

Just a quick flick through the website, you get the feeling that it's all for the love and keeping alive your own football clubs history and passing on the knowledge to the next generation. Plus helping out other supporters from clubs you've played over the years. Fantastic. Smile

As PompeyPete says above, slowly but surely, more and more fans are creating a good historical website for their own Club, maybe one day my Club, Brentford FC, will do the same?! Thing is it will need several supporters to get together to sort one out! Smile

There was once a Brentford history site, I know as I worked on it. Cant find a link to see if its still active.

If more people were interested in adding to www.thefootballarchives.com then we would have ONE site to cover all clubs

EDIT:

Found it

Terrific site indeed.

Yes, I know about that one. It's Mark's website - Brentford's programme editor - which is incomplete as he's adding the stats over time, that he has spare, if he has any!!?

I was prepared to do the programme bit, and memorabilia, but haven't got round to it yet. It's finding the hours needed to cover everything. Smile

Fantastic site. Thumbs Up

The amount of research and work that's been expended is a credit to all those involved.

I started something similar many years ago for my own purposes but it is still probably only 50% complete. If it ever gets finished I would plan to publish although in the meantime I started building a programme and memorabilia website (as opposed to a more statistics based site) and this will probably take precedence for now.

It amuses me when people say I wish there was a similar site for my club.

If you want one the answer is to do it yourself.

Brilliant website - as others have said.... if only..........

I noticed I have a photo of one player of whom you have nothing showing, Albert Malam? Any good to you? I can't find my scanned copy but I can do one for you if you need it.

Hi -I can't seem to get the stats links on the website to work - keep getting the below screen:




Was curious to find out about the below programme/game - seems unusual in that it was a mid-season friendly between two teams competing in the same division (and battling each other against relegation too, although they both ended up going down...)

Think this one is Chesterfield Reserves from November 1921.

Great site - will keep dipping into it now I know it's there

Had a quick look through my Yorkshire League programme issue notes and the following aways definitely exist:-

46/7 at Scunthorpe United Res
49/0 at Gainsborough Trinity Res
49/0 at Sheffield United A

Chesterfield were in the Yorkshire League in 38/9 & from 46/7 upto 54/5 and many of the clubs were regular issuers in these seasons so, although I may not have seen a particular issue against Chesterfield, it is highly likely that a programme will exist

Also there is was a single sheet issued for the 58/9 FAYC match between Chesterfield & Barnsley on 25/12/58 (sold on ebay)

Had this one in my collection for years - 38/9 Chesterfield A v Worksop Town at Staveley

Not sure if you can glean any info for your fine website from this thread posted earlier this year? It's basically a list of programmes from 'other' games played at Saltergate.

Not sure if this is of interest but here is a picture of my second oldest Grantham Town programme away at Chesterfield Reserves played 10th September 1932

Thank you one and all for the info and your kind words about the site. I have to confess, all I did for the site was the programme info, most of the site is the work of CFC club historian Stuart Basson and statto Paul Kellett


derby1884
We knew the teamsheet existed but Iíve personally never seen it. From it I think weíve got the name of one of our players wrong. I really liked the score of the end-of-season friendly in 54-55

blueshearer
Thank you, 3 reserve matches we didnít have programme info for

Peteís Picture Palace
Yes, could you please scan the photo of Albert Malam for us, personally Iíve only ever seen him on one team photo

yachtsmun
Canít help you with the error on the stats link but I can help a bit on the GTFC v CFC friendly in 50-51. As you say it was strange that we were in the same division but that date was FA Cup 5th round day and as we were both knocked out maybe there was a shortage of other opponents for a friendly.

Carlisleprogs
Brilliant programme, Iíve never seen that before, it was a friendly match for our reserve team who played that year in the Central Alliance, which was for midland teams, so I canít begin to think why we played a friendly at Workington

BarnsleyCollector
Thank you for the YL info, if you come across any more Iíd love to hear. Also the FAYC game on 25/12/58, as this was at Saltergate I suspected there would have been a teamsheet but Iíve never seen one. We did know about the CFC A Team v Worksop Town as I think I remember seeing this on an offer list years ago, sadly I couldnít afford to bid at the time

Rocky
We havenít got as far as listing other non-CFC matches at Saltergate but I do know about these that Spireitenag listed, I sit a few seats away from him at home matches

Retrosmith
I did know about that match, I suspect that programme might have once belonged to me before I cashed in on my collection about 10 years or so ago. Do you know about CFC v Grantham in 21-22, this was long thought to be the oldest CFC programme in existence until a few years ago? I had that one, also sold it but Iíve got a photocopy so if you are interested then PM me with your address and Iíll send you a photocopy

Sir Alf, this is a 75 dpi scan but if you give me your email address I'll scan you a 300 dpi version. Does this come from the same team photo you've seen?

Or it's available to purchase - 5.5x3.5" original Wilkes & Co photo from the early 30's. PM me for full details.

Hi,

I can confirm a single sheet was issued for leeds reserves v chesterfield reserves from seasons 1946/7 to 1958/9 inclusive (exceptions being 47/8 and 55/6).
These two probably exist as known issues known exist for most home games from those 2 seasons.

They can be seen on my website.
