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. 🙄

Sympathies Dave. My mother did something similar with my early collection. When asked why she binned them she responded "Well, you've read them haven't you" 🥴

I played a few games for Foxhall Boys U14s with John Armfield between the sticks. What a honour to play in the same team as an Armfield.
Yep, played in the same team as him too. He was just starting out in mens football, I was coming to the end of it.
