Southport FC Former Players Association (Port Online)

Original 1978 Huddersfield programme to be re-issued this Saturday

Saturday’s matchday programme will include an original 1978 programme! Originally issued to celebrate 50 years of League Football, the match sadly became Southport’s last home football league game. A couple of hundred copies were found to still be in original editor and Club Statistician Geoff Wilde’s possession when he sadly died last year. Re-issuing a43-year-old programme is believed to be a football first. Programmes will only cost £1 each and will be available from the club shop and turnstiles before the game

If anyone would like a copy leaving in the club shop for collection on the day, please email John on woodwoody8@aol.com and I will leave in the Shop with Christine for collection. Just to re-iterate, these are the original surplus programmes from 1978, and not re-prints. Rather than have them languish in someone’s attic for years, we are hopefully making them available at a bargain price for a new generation of collectors.
