Hi.

Iíve only ever seen one West Wight programme from a similar era - that was late 40ís and a Ďfan-foldí (single sheet folded in three) type.

Would be useful to see higher-res pictures, especially of the teams, but Iíd guess this was actually mid-50s or possibly early-60s. Lots of the advertisers are the same as the one Iíve seen, but in your pics the ads use more modern fonts. By the way lots of IW phone numbers were still double digit well into the 1960s.

Itís a great item though. If you can post a close-up of names in teams I might be able to help more. Donít know anything about the visitors Iím afraid - am guessing theyíre from off the Island.

Further to my earlier slightly wayward guess, Iím reliably informed this was a London County Council tour match played on April 3rd, 1953. West Wight won 4-2.
