So my missus worked for an auctioneer a good few years ago. I attended and a box of old Blackpool programmes went unsold. At the end I told him I was a Pool fan and he said to just take them. And so I did and they've just sat in a box in a cupboard. Home and away from approx 1967 to about 1975. Whoever owned them was particular and coded them. I've opened the box today and for the first time have had a good root. I'll post some pics. Jog memories for some of you I'm sure.

Macs, I collected every programme and all the relevant Green Finals for the 1952/3 season. I started my National Service in September of 1953.
I came home on leave from Germany sometime in 1954. I went to the drawer where I kept all my Pool memorabilia, opened it, it was empty.
I said to my mother, 'Where is all my football stuff, programmes etc'. She replied, 'Oh, I thought you wouldn't want them now so I threw them away.'
I was apoplectic, but had to accept it.
The worst part was that my mother was a Pool STH. 🙄

This book from 1987 was by Ellis Tomlinson a French and Latin teacher and heraldry expert from Baines GS. 'Tos' was also actively involved in school football and cricket across the Fylde. I will select a few pictures from the book. 20200909_205826.jpg
