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 email@example.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.
