What a good read the Archive programmes are. Definitely close season reading, I recommended it.

I agree. This is a really special resource.

I recently added some Surrey "itinerary cards" to the site from 1930's- ones featuring K's players. They were given to the selected players with arrangements for the game. Once you've read one you've pretty much read them all but was interesting that players simply needed to show their face at the ground half an hour before kick off unless they were travelling by train to an away match. Not sure how reliable trains were back then but it felt like they were cutting things very fine for travel to another county and I guess matches did start late back in the day.

Also just got some scans of 1945-1946 home programmes including the first game after the war with details of the dead and injured. These will probably go online in the next week or so. I have an update on the main part of the site planned for the three seasons 1890-1893 when they were Kingston Wanderers but is still a few weeks away. Updates should be more regular after this as I only need to do one season at a time.

I have noticed from the "traffic" though that most people are mainly interested in the programmes so it is tempting to put more seasons up but I think my priority should really be to get the history of the club online. I'm also tempted to do a photo gallery throughout history to stop people getting bored...

The Origins booklet 1950 is especially worth reading, it highlights how K,s got to Richmond Road and almost lost that ground . In those early days the 1920s there were asset strippers. However, even then K's were struggling with ground and identity issues. Nothing new.
