In The Grecian this Saturday…

A look at our brand new matchday programme for the Portsmouth clash

Our new-look 80-page matchday programme for the first game of the 2014/15 season against Portsmouth is packed with loads of fresh material.

For the first time this season, our programme will be designed by The Graphic Design House and printed by Bishops Printers.  The two companies are specialists in the realm of football and produce unique, bespoke programmes from clubs ranging from the Premier League to non-League.
