Welcome to Chelmer Football Programmes Website. Established in 1982, we have seen the trade move from Fayres virtually every weekend, through the heyday of the paper catalogue, to the present day where most customers prefer to use the internet. 

The business centres around football programmes alongside other types of memorabilia such as tickets, trade cards and books as well as items from other sports.
