It's all organised - Cycling for Fairtrade

Stuart Sharkey (Stuart.Sharkey@ultra-mcs.com) writes "Back in the early summer of 2005, while Aidy was signing such players as Seites, Devaney, Junior and Griffiths one person had faith to say that we would be a Division 1 (Premiership) Club by May 06. I have to be honest and say it was not me. I thought achieving a position of 21st in Division 2 (The Championship) would be a real achievement.

So who was this person that put us all to shame? Well Iím delighted to say it was my daughter. So when she and her husband decided last summer to do a sponsored cycle ride around all the Premiership football grounds to raise money for Fairtrade, the comment was made that Vicarage Road would have to be included as they would be in Division 1 (The Premiership) by then. So donít worry, leave your finger nails unchewed, itís all organized, Premiership, here we come.

If you would like to reward this amazing piece of foresight with your support, words and cash, the web site is www.cycleforfairtrade.com. Thank you."

Sale of memorabilia

David Prutton (david@davidprutton.wanadoo.co.uk) writes "I am moving to Canada†even though it hurts me to go and leave the Orns behind, especially bearing in mind the Aidy Boothroyd revolution. As a result of this move I am looking for a good home for my collection of videos, programmes and books. I have attached details (PDF file, needs Adobe Reader). I feel that these things should stay close to the Vic. I have spent quite a lot of money acquiring the collection so I am looking to sell rather than give it away, plus the money will help soften the blow of not being able to watch the Orns in the flesh. Contact details are in the attached."

Programmes for sale

Colin Reid (ears_2_big@hotmail.com), a Hamilton Academicals fan, writes " Hi there all hornets! I acquired some matchday programmes from 1981-1986. In total there are four with players such as John Barnes, David Bardsley and Pat Rice. If anybody is interested in them, I am willing to do a deal as I feel you would probably appreciate them more than me. Good luck for the season!"

Wanted: 1969 goalkeeper's jersey

David Walker (thebarracuda1@hotmail.com) writes: "I'm trying to get hold of a 1969 Watford goalkeeper's jersey! As you can imagine its not easy to get hold of one as demand is probably non existent and they are not top of everyone's Christmas list, but if you knew anywhere/anyone that may have a replica (or original!!) I'd be very greatful.

I have managed to find an outfield shirt from this promotion winning season but Ireally need the goalkeeper's top for a Christmas present. Any ideas???
Thanks."†

Programmes for sale

Andrew Keir writes: "I have around twenty old Watford programmes, most with their accompanying Football League reviews (a freebie inserted into the programme back then) from the late 60s/early 70s including the FA Cup semi final with Chelsea at White Hart Lane after knocking out Stoke and Liverpool. The programmes come in several formats as they changed a lot in a few years reflecting the times. These are in good condition as they have been stored in the dry but I need the space now. I would like to sell them, preferably to someone with an interest in the club."

You can contact Andrew with an offer at andrewkeir@hotmail.com.

Looking for John Price

John Longman writes: "I am trying to locate an ex-Spurs/Watford player by the name of John D Price. He played for Eastbourne in 1954, then came to Spurs and when he left he went to Aldershot in 1957. After Aldershot, he played 21 games for Watford. Then he went to Sittingbourne. I have been in touch with the clubs i have mentioned, but unfortunately they have not been able to help. If you could help, I would be very grateful."
