Hunting old Footy Records

I am trying to hunt down some old Footy Records and I am hoping that some people here may be able to help. The ones that I am looking for the most are:

* Alberton F.L. (pre-2000)
* Bass Valley-Wonthaggi Dist. F.L. (any season)
* East Gippsland F.L. (any season)
* Geelong & Dist. F.L. (pre-1995)
* Horsham & Dist. F.L. (any season)
* Hume F.L. (any season)
* Melbourne North F.L. (1988-1994)
* Nepean F.L. (any season prior to the merger with the MPFL in 1987)
* Panton Hill F.L. (any season)
* Riddell & Dist. F.L. (from the 1990s)
* Riviera F.L. (any season)
* South West Gippsland F.L. (any season)
* South West District F.L. (any season)
* Tatiara F.L. (any season)
* Upper Murray F.L. (any season)

If anyone has got some but couldn't bear to part with them, you could always forward a PDF of one/some Records. PM me if you can help this way.

I am also looking for a book called 'Country Footy 95', which, as its name suggests, was a league by league review of country footy in Victoria from 1995.

I am not actively looking for any other leagues unless they are from the 1990s or earlier, and I am not looking for anything AFL, VFL, VFA, SANFL, WAFL or TFL.

Regards

Benchwarmer,
I have the book Country Footy 95, but I'm having trouble finding it. I know that's not what you want so I will keep searching for it.
If you need any Footy Records from the Ballarat Football League I would be able to help as I have most copies for years going back to 1946. Yes 1946 not a misprint.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

'Country Football 95' was put out by Prime television, launched in Melbourne on Wednesday 13 December 1995. Retail price $8.50.It is around 150 A4 pages, less some full-page adverts. Six pages of colour footy action.
I aim to retain my copy. I must not have gone into it too thoroughly as I have noticed only a few spelling mistakes -- Maroopna instead of Mooroopna, the VFL's spelling of Warragul, Yaaroweyah instead of Yarroweyah, Norakjuah instead of Noradjuha.
A copy should be in the State Library, or, ha ha, try Prime tv.

I do have a Panton Hill footy record somewhere at home. If I can dig it up I can scan and send it to you.

I remembered buying it and was impressed by the effort put into it. Only wish I hadn't lost it.
