18 hours

Well that’s 18 hours of uploading complete and to be honest I’m sick of it! I’ve had to walk away from my desk a few times to re-focus, I’ve got square eyes and a sore back but there’s light at the end of the tunnel, the cups of coffee consumed counter is very accurate! The upload is now complete and is made up of 381 programmes, which includes away fixtures, testimonials and friendlies, which brings the total amount of programmes to 1331, and brings the total amount of pages scanned to 40930! The next upload will bring the site towards 2000 programmes which is great progress.

The years uploaded are:

1960, 61, 62, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 71, 72, 76, 77, 78, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 2000, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07.

There are a few programmes I need assistance with as they have signatures from various players from various fixtures, most of which I have no idea who they are! What id like to do is have them identified, I have put ‘Signatures’ next to the programmes that have them, one being Peter Grant’s testimonial below, page 40:

If you can identify the signatures please let me know so I can annotate the programme.

On another note I have been in contact with a ticket collector called John who has kindly offered to scan his ticket collection to then be shared on the site in line with the programmes, I feel it will be a great addition to the site. He has been collecting tickets for the past five years and has tickets from the 1970’s to date and these will soon be added for you to view.
