The FA Alliance Committee has REJECTED the proposal for a Step 2 mini-league. The Committee has supported the outcome of the original resolution vote to continue at Step 1 & make Step 2 null & void (with no promotions/ relegat-ions). The decision will require FA Council approval.
“Consideration was also given to an alternative sporting solution at Step 2 in line with a proposal submitted by certain Step 2 clubs. The Alliance Committee rejected the proposal, and any alternative, in the interest of the integrity of the National League System.”

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT THESE LAST FEW MONTHS. THIS HOBBY HAS BEEN SO WELL RECEIVED THAT I PLAN TO CARRY ON FOR AS LONG AS TIME PERMITS DURING LOCKDOWN.
I NOW HAVE SO MANY CLUBS ON BOARD WITH THIS AND THIS IS INCREASING BY SO MANY EACH DAY. ALL HOME CLUBS NOW RECEIVE 50p FOR EACH PROGRAMME SOLD.

Welcome to my website which will change a lot over the coming weeks as and when time permits and hope I can help you to obtain your much-sought after printed programmes. If I cannot help you, I will point you in the right direction of other companies that can. I am a collector and groundhopper myself and there is nothing more frustrating than getting to the turnstile, with your protective envelope at the ready, to be told “Sorry no paper programmes: On-line only”
HOW THIS WORKS:
Basically you tell me what programmes you are interested in. I will then look to see if they are in my thousands of permitted programmes that I can print. If not, I will seek permission and obtain the PDF of the programme and then print once that has been given. It is exactly the same as you doing the same and taking to a local printers or the library and asking them to do it. Please make sure that the clubs themselves are not offering the printed versions for sale as we do not want to deprive them of much needed funds. Under our new way of doing this, we are donating 50p per programme to each club so that they all get something from the sales. (Please see the information button for details of this). The old method of you obtaining permission and sending us the PDFs is no longer the case as the files were too big to send and had so many people trying. Hopefully this new method will be easier for everyone. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS JUST A HOBBY FOR ME & NOT A BUSINESS.
We do not download the files that we have not been given permission for due to copyright issues.
Weeks have been spent trawling through websites and other social media outlets to see what programmes are available on PDF. This is not just for on-line programmes only, but some clubs produce both these and hard copy programmes. The list I have is just for guidance letting you know what is available out there. It just saves you hours of going through hundreds of websites.
I WILL ONLY PRINT PROGRAMMES WHERE THE CORRECT PERMISSIONS HAVE BEEN GRANTED
If you continue to send me the PDF’s or memory sticks, etc, I will assume that you have the correct permission from the club or owner. Please keep this in case I ever need to see it. A quick courtesy message to the club often brings a positive reply. Most will say just go ahead as they would have already received income from you at the game itself and will only be too happy to help. They also realise that there is every possible chance that you will return again if you know that there is a programme that you can obtain, albeit at a later date. If they do their own sales for hard copy programmes, then please do not ask us to print and instead support these clubs by buying from them. Please also let me know if there are any clubs programmes that I may have missed and I will add it to the listings but remember we ourselves will not download them until the necessary permission has been granted.
THANKS TO THE MANY CLUBS THAT HAVE ALREADY ALLOWED US TO HELP OUT FELLOW FANS BY GRANTING PERMISSION AND WE ARE ALSO GRATEFUL TO THOSE WHO WILL BE ADVERTISING THE SERVICE IN THEIR PROGRAMMES WHEN WE RETURN TO FOOTBALL. MANY HAVE ALSO ASKED US TO PROVIDE 10-15 HARD COPY PROGRAMMES FOR BOARDROOM AND SPONSORS PURPOSES.
NEW FEATURE FOR THE WEBSITE
I am now using the spare time I have to create a new feature where I will list all 52 Divisions from the Premiership down to non-league step 6 and will
put a scan of the front cover from one of this season's programmes next to it.
It is a mammoth task as there are 1038 clubs that make up those 52 Divisions. I do have quite a few scans of programmes and will search for more and will add each day. Please feel free to email me if you have any and I will add in as and when. If successful, could extend to the Scottish, Welsh and Irish League's as well. Please click on LEAGUES at the top of the page.
There are the top 7 League's so far and hope to list the other 45 divisions in 1 go during March.
