This season’s match Programme has a new look for 2019, or a retro look to be more accurate! Plus a very special 2nd version will be available too…
With great support from the Saints Heritage Society, we will have a different front cover for every home game this season which will take its’ inspiration from a retro-programme featuring Saints against the same opposition back in the day.
We start tonight with a Saints vs. Wigan classic from Good Friday in 1966, which we hope bodes well for tonight! That day Saints recorded a 17-10 win that included a try from a certain Tom van Vollenhoven!
We feature that team inside the programme and this regular feature will also highlight their individual Heritage numbers, produced for us as a result of the outstanding work from our friends at the Saints Heritage Society.
Tom has a very appropriate number for a flying winger so pick up your copy to find out which one!
If you have any ideas for covers you would like to see and you have the original programme in your collection, then please scan the front cover and email to us at [email protected].
You never know, we might just choose yours to become part of our collection in 2019.
The usual features are inside with columns from Chairman, Eamonn McManus, Justin Holbrook and James Roby plus loads of other content including an interview with Lachlan Coote, details of our successful 2021 World Cup bid to become a Host Venue, more information on how Heritage numbers were brought to life, plus a look back to the video years of the legendary Ron Hoofe, a quick Quiz page and something for Junior Saints to keep them entertained too.
Buy yours from inside or outside the ground tonight for just £3 and many thanks to Warrington Audi for their season-long Programme Sponsorship.
In addition, we have produced just 200 copies of a special limited-edition version for the same £3 price which will contain exactly the same great content as the main programme but with a special one-off cover design. This unique cover is in tribute to our flying winger Tommy Makinson as he makes his 200th Saints appearance tonight and this version is only on sale in the Club Shop, so when they’ve gone, they’ve gone!
Please note, the Tommy Makinson version will NOT be on sale in any other area of the Stadium, so if you want one make sure you visit the Club Shop before you enter the turnstiles
All Hospitality guests will receive the Retro cover version as part of their package this evening.
