A rare football programme from 1912 is set to raise up to £10,000 at auction. The programme is from the Barnsley v West Bromwich Albion FA Cup final replay which took place at Bramall Lane on April 24 1912 - just nine days after the sinking of the Titanic. The teams drew 0-0 in the cup final at Crystal Palace in London so the match was replayed at Bramall Lane four days later.

Now a programme from that historic cup final replay is up for sale and is expected to sell for between £8,000 and £10,000 at Bonhams in Chester. The programme is the jewel in a collection of Barnsley FC programmes and memorabilia collected by a fan over a forty year period. The whole lot is expected to fetch around £50,000.
