Download them quickly, because on May 9, 2022 I will be cancelling my Google Drive subscription rendering most of the links on the archives useless and pretty much closing them down. 

Having to deal with the security updates by Google last year requiring around half of the links on the blog needing to be re-done really drained my enthusiasm for maintaining the blog. When more links were made useless by the security updates after that, a request for support from them went unanswered and after four months the only thing I heard from them was the email alerting me that the annual subscription is due on May 10. 

To allow for anyone who wants to do bulk downloads while they can, here are links (all post-security update) to the various folders I have stored most of the files in:

Australian Croatian Soccer Tournament Programmes Page Added

One of the most rewarding thing about maintaining the archives on this blog is when someone contributes a collection to be added. It's an added bonus when they have done the scanning themselves, which happens to be first rate as well. 

So today I am happy to add a new page to the programmes archive, the Australian Croatian Soccer Tournament Programmes page. Great thanks go to Tony Cavar of Hurstville Zagreb for sending through these fifteen programmes ranging from 1979 to 2013.

I've added one honour roll, and will look to expand this in time. For now though, there are many team photographs to crop and add to my collection, and lots of mini club histories to go through. For many, these will bring back great memories. Enjoy!
