I wonder if anybody has this amazing SUFC programme in their collection....

This programme I believe has been included twice in future match programmes since it was originally issued in August 1955 at the first league match against Norwich City at Roots Hall.
I think it was included loosely as a supplement in a programme in December 1999 against maybe Barnet? this was to mark 1000 matches at Roots Hall. (This needs to be confirmed).
Then in August 2005 this programme was also included in the pre-season friendly match programme also against Norwich City to mark 50 years since we played our first match at Roots Hall in August 1955.
Yes, I’d forgotten why I have 3 or 4 spare copies ,all in excellent condition..”...it was a couple of months later that I saw my first game (2-0 v QPR FA Cup, Hollis and Barker).

Is there a pdf of this one anywhere to read?

Actually are any of them archived anywhere?

For those interested, the Trust have a programme fair in the Shrimpers Bar tomorrow morning from 9.30 am. I am pretty sure we do have our own copy of it, but it is filed away with other important memorabilia for when we have our "museum" in the new ground.


We do have a copy of the front of this programme on our set of 4 beer mats - along with the Liverpool, Man U and another I can't remember, which are now at a reduced price!

Yeah I have it too, plus a tonne of others from around that time and a bit later.

Are there serious collectors on here? I would be prepared to part with all of them for fair (but under market value) price
If you post in the programme thread that Cricko started yesterday in the Trust area, I'm sure there will be a few collectors that would be interested in your programmes @Seaside Shrimper
