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!

It’s 3pm Saturday, and no football!

Why not flick through some fixtures from this day over the years:

Hamilton Academicals v Celtic – 28th of March 1987 – 3-2

Celtic v Aberdeen – 28th of March 1981 – 1-1

Celtic v Morton – 28th of March 1979 – 3-0

Where’s the time going? Its March already and so much to sort! I’ve got a few little projects on the go and its non stop with work chucked in the mix! Spending my free time with the site more or less sorting everything I have rather than adding barrow loads more programmes to the to do list.  In among all the activity I managed to get myself a sneaky trip up the road to watch Celtic play Copenhagen and have a couple of days off with a friend who’s now been up to see Celtic three times and it will be his last, three times up and three defeats, he’s jinxing it every time!

I’ve now opened up pages for the 1950’s I’m starting to get more of the older ones scanned, the years added are:

1957, 1958, 1959 and I have added a fair few more to the 1960’s, which are 1960, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 93 programmes in total, there’ also some odd ones for the 1970’s and 1980’s that made it into the latest scan, a couple examples are below:

Celtic v Real Madrid

West Ham v Celtic – Bobby Moore Testimonial

St Ouen’s v Celtic

Enjoy!
