Rare football programme auctioned
A rare programme previewing the only British football match to be banned by the Nazis has been sold at an auction for 320.

The programme, for a match arranged in occupied Guernsey on 8 June 1943, was estimated to fetch 70-100.

The game between island team Les Vauxbelets Old Boys Association and a Continental XI of slave labourers was "verboten" by the occupiers.

Shropshire auctioneers Mullock Madeley were unsurprised at the interest.

Documents expert Richard Westwood-Brookes said: "This is possibly the only copy of this programme in existence."
