Would anybody like a very big collection of scrapbooks for Leeds United from about 1984 -1997

It includes every game, home and away with match reports from most national newspapers for each game.

There are approximately 50 lever arch files full.

There are also match reports from the opposition team’s local paper too.

Collection from Halifax if you’re interested.

All in good condition.

Happy to report back that I got in touch with MrG and arranged with a contact of mine at the Leeds Central Library Local History department for these all to be donated.

If anyone else has Leeds United related collections to donate, Leeds Central Library is keen for more.

Here is a shot of them prior to being transported.

Deebo, do you think they'd be interested in handwritten notes & copies of internet articles/newspaper pieces I have used as research for a few books? I think I have at least 2 big full files available. I bought half the newspaper copies from them in the first place :D
