This is very likely common knowledge and I’m just unaware of it ( not too up on Man Utd programmes) so apologies if that’s the case but going through some of my programmes and I’ve got three of the subject programme and all three of them are trimmed differently. The photographs show two, I took them before I found my third copy of the programme. The third one is cut straight but there is no space between the “printed by” line and the bottom of the page.

What’s the story ? Is it simply multiple print runs ?

Back then, these likely would have been trimmed manually by guillotine in stacks of ten or twenty. Almost certainly from the same print run, just poorly aligned when trimmed. Maybe they put the work experience lad on it that week.
