Pair of Plymouth Argyle programmes are the sale of the century
TWO Plymouth Argyle programmes dating back almost 100 years are set to go under the hammer.
The programmes contain information on two home games; a Southern League fixture against Swindon on Saturday September 14, 1912 and the second against Southampton on Saturday March 29, 1913.
They were found contained inside diaries written by Miss D E Goodbody, a resident of Plymouth and a Quaker.
According to her diaries, Miss Goodbody went to several Plymouth Argyle home matches in 1912 and 1913 with a friend and described the matches as 'thrilling!'.

She also writes about events such as the arrival of Mrs Pankhurst in Plymouth from America, details of a talk about Robert Falcon Scott which states 'We are waiting to hear of Mr Scott's success in reaching the pole sometime in the summer' and an entry dated April 15 1912 stating 'Today we heard that Titanic struck an iceberg'.
The programmes are being auctioned by Eldreds Auctioneers and Valuers on October 15. The programmes are predicted to fetch around £200-300.
