Another colliery team from County Durham away to Carlisle in the English Cup.

1925/6 Carlisle v Chilton Colliery Recreation Athletic (very catchy for chants)

Well said Leslie...I think its a point that sometimes get lost in the hobby.

I have a collection of 350 plus programmes dating from 2009, that have little monetary value, but they are worth more to me than any expensive individual programmes from any era.

These are the programmes I would never part with, because these are the games, complete with team-sheet and tickets. that my young un's have attended.

As I said not worth anything to anyone else, but to us, a unique part of the memories.

By the way, some great programme covers on show, great to see them.
Especially during these strange days

Likewise if anyone has any from this day in history, the challenge is up and running again. Can we do another calendar year. Confused

Stay safe everybody.

Regards Sharrow


I am lucky to have quite a few rare items but every year I get excited by the issues for pre season friendlies; hopefully with trips to new grounds (Ross County away was a good one this season) and then onto the league; like Sharrowblade, I want a programme, teamsheet and ticket. Putting them all together is just as exciting as getting a rare item.

I don’t see enough of my rare items but get great pleasure from the current season until such time as those issues end up on the loft with god knows how many from previous seasons to clear the decks for yet another new season.

The current season issues provide great memories of away trips with mates, having a drink in awful pubs, meeting wierd and wonderful characters, invariably losing (it’s Carlisle United) and very long trips home. I enjoy the old programmes but love the new ones too

Well said Pete, some great programmes

I can sympathise with carlisleprogs with regards to the away travelling and he'll have to go much further than us.

Although, we've been to London on six occasions this season, Chelsea, Watford, West Ham, Spurs, Arsenal, Palace, plus Brighton and Bournemouth.

And they didn't lose any of them Love

It was a relief when we went to Manchester City Laughing

My mates and me think of anywhere less than 3 hours away as an easy journey and rarely miss those “local” fixtures. As we have got older the 6 hour round trip is about our maximum. A couple of seasons ago, in a league 2 with a southern bias, anyone who attended every Carlisle league away would manage 11,000 miles. Too much for me these days.

Over the last couple of seasons Port Vale have issued a series of Syd Kirkham covers on their programmes. The covers I have seen are wonderful potteries scenes with a football connection.

Anybody who hasn’t seen them should look them up. The Port Vale programme production people should be very proud.

On what can only be very low sales some of the Scottish non league clubs produce amazing programmes and covers. Here are just two examples from this seasons Scottish Cup.

Fraserburgh v Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic Scottish Cup round 1

Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic v Buckie Thistle Scottish Cup round 2
