That’s another 124 programmes added to the site, taking the total amount of programmes to 2521, and the amount of pages scanned to 81955, a mammoth task!

There are plenty of programmes currently being bartered for and heading my way in the post! As I was uploading I had ebay on in the background and I just missed out on a Newcastle v Celtic friendly from 1953 by some jammy bastard! Who beat me by a quid! Oh well.

A few of the uploads that caught my eye:

Celtic v Hibernian – 26th of October 1974 – League Cup Final – 6-3

Celtic v Dundee United – 4th of May 1974 – Scottish Cup Final – 3-0

FSV Zwickau v Celtic – 17th of March 1976 – European Cup Winners Cup 3rd Round – 1-0

Celtic v FC Solothurn – 12th of July 1988 – ??? – Has anyone got a result for this?

League of Ireland XI v Celtic – 8th of March 1994 – Friendly – ??? – Also this?

Heart of Midlothian v Celtic – 1st of December 2013 – Scottish Cup – 7-0 (SEVEN)

Well that’s Christmas with over for another year, Dundee United to take care of and then onto the 2nd of January!

In the meantime 339 more programmes have been scanned and added to the site, taking the total of programmes on the site to 2421, with 78299 pages scanned in the process! The programmes now go from 1950 to 2020 with still a lot of gaps to fill,  most of the latest additions are from 2010-2020.

I have also updated the ‘Evolution of the matchday programme’ page up to date to the current year. (Hopefully the link below works!)

Evolution of the Matchday Programme

That’s the site just over a year old now and its received a great response and the feedback has been great, so it makes up for the countless hours spent sorting the scanning and uploading!

148 more programmes have been added to the site, mainly to the last decade. There are a few odds and sods added to the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s as well as the early 00’s, seems a small addition but the scanners have lulled me into a false sense of security as there are hundreds more to come in the next week or so! The programmes available to view now exceed 2000, and the pages scanned in the process so far is now over 60,000 which is a huge number that is only going to grow further! Enjoy….

Celtic v Aston Villa – 2nd of August 1986 – Friendly – 1-0

Manchester United v Celtic – 3rd of August 1993 – Friendly – 0-1

Celtic v Lincoln Red Imps – 20th of July 2016 – European Cup – 3-0

 

Finally! The latest batch have been scanned and received back, all 287 of them, the programmes were sent in early March and since then have sat waiting to be scanned. I’d forgotten how long it takes to upload each programme to the site as it’s been so long, several days later and 287 programmes have been added to the site, taking the total amount of programmes available to view to 1934, and 55358 pages of Celtic related content to browse.

The years added to are from 1951 all the way through to 2018 , nearly every year has had programmes added to it and as quick as these have been uploaded more have made there way to the scanners. All through this period I have been buying up more and more programmes and must have another 500 plus to have scanned, the last decade is more or less complete and I have nearly every programme available for the 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s, these are next to go on to the site on top of whats already available to view.

Enjoy browsing!
