To celebrate Sports Heritage Day we thought we give you a sneak preview of a new collection that as arrived at the University of Worcester Research Collections.
The collection has been deposited by John Atkinson, a leading basketball national and international statistician. The material includes score sheets, player statistics, match programmes, yearbooks, magazines as well as medals, trophies, pennants, official ties and other personal memorabilia.
