WHAT TO EXPECT
Generally programmes are of a similar standard to English Non League issues. That of course covers a wide range and this is reflected by the price you will pay. Photocopying is often the norm for the lower sides, although some are printed professionally. Obtaining programmes in Australasia is difficult. At times very difficult. There are no dealers, no programme fairs, no club programme shops. In fact nothing. This situation leads to a slightly higher price than you may pay for something similar in the UK market. Most clubs do not produce programmes and many that do, make no effort to circulate them. The range featured in this on-line catalogue represents the largest ever put together by an Australian "dealer". The vast majority are for league games although often the programmes will not say so. Also, it is not uncommon for the year or season to be omitted from any part of the programme.
In most cases, programmes are in mint or very good condition. Where this is not the case, I have tried to identify this. The price will also reflect, where applicable, a programme with "faults". Standard codes to describe faults are used, for example, vsf = very slightly folded etc.
This on-line catalgue is primarily aimed at the collector in the UK. Prices are quoted in
British pounds sterling. When an order has been confirmed, you will be provided with
details of a UK bank account to credit for the cost of the programmes, postage and packaging.
(For Australian based collectors, an Australian dollar account will be provided).
Collectors in other countries will need to arrange to trasnfer payment into pounds once an order has been confirmed.
Where possible, a similar alternative will be offered where
your choice is not available unless you specifically state that there are
no second choices.
Should a more efficient and cost effective payment method be identified, this will be relayed to collectors placing orders.
Orders can be placed in a couple of ways. The easiest way is to e mail me by clicking here:
Order by e mail
and simply placing the order by e mail.
It is important to state when ordering, the following information in your e mail:
1) HOME TEAM; 2) AWAY TEAM; 3) SEASON; 4) PRICE IN GBP; 5) OTHER;
If ordering from within Australia for delievry to an Australian address, quote the price in AUD instead of GBP.
I will advise availability and final costs by e mail. (Usually this will occur within a week). All orders will be handled in the same order that they are received.
Collectors are strongly recommended to advise a second choice in the event that their first choice programme is unavailable.
Remember, you will need to add your Postal Address for delivery of programmes ordered.
The alternative method is to send an air mail order to the following address:

Postage to the UK and Europe can be expensive. Postage is extra on all
programmes and should be added to the cost of the order. Air Mail takes
10 - 14 days. Surface (Sea) Mail no longer exists from Australia due to
very low usage of the service. (The cost differential between air and
sea mail was minimal anyway).
The price for postage will be advised when your order is confirmed.
Postage costs within Austrakia differ depending on the destination, so please advise your postcode when ordering to assist with calculating postage costs.
