Preston North End vs. Nottingham Forest
4th January 1969 / FA Cup 3rd Round / Attd: 20,008 / Price: 1 Shilling / Printed by Mather Bros. Printers, One Garstang Road, Preston
The FA cup is back, with all it’s giant killings and pie-gate-palavas. 50 years ago, this gorgeously gold and electric blue programme helped Division 2 team Preston North End set the scene for a giant-killing of Division 1 side Nottingham Forest. Essentially a ‘shiny’ version of their standard league game programmes, this design has the feel of a rare Pokemon Card, but with more adverts for used motor car dealerships!
