Programmes among the best, again!

4 months ago By David Watters

The EVO-STIK League's fans enjoyed reading some of the best matchday magazines in Non-League again last season.

Many of the Northern Premier League's programme editors are giving themselves a pat on the back after Soccer Club Swap Shop published their annual awards for more than 700 matchday magazines from the Premier League down.

Rushall Olympic's award-winning programme led the way once again, The Olympian taking third spot in Non-League's top 50 behind runners-up Leamington and winners Stockport County as well as top spot in the EVO-STIK League's Premier Division ahead of second-placed Stourbridge.

Five other EVO-STIK League clubs made Non-League's top 30 - Sheffield FC at number 11, the Glassboys at 22 with Prescot Cables and Cleethorpes Town right behind them on 23 and 24 respectively and South Shields squeezing in at 28.

Scarborough Athletic, third in the North Division roll of honour behind runners-up South Shields and winners Cables, just missed the cut in 32nd place. In EVO-STIK League South, Sheffield FC took top spot with Cleethorpes Town judged as runners-up.

A total of 734 club programmes entered the prestigious awards for season 2017-18 with the winners judged on content, design and value for money by the experts at Soccer Club Swap Shop. National League Grimsby Town were the highest placed Non-League club in the overall national accolades in seventh spot with Brighton & Hove Albion's programme named as the game's best last term.
