I was at that game too!! Liverpool played in red shirts and white shorts in those days!

First game was in the 1955-56 season against Bradford (City I think) though it might have been Park Avenue



The reason I hate this thread,no matter how hard I try I can't remember my first game,I can remember our players but not who we played.  

But same season as you.

My first game was as a 5 year old a week after my birthday. It was February the 25th 1984, i can't remember much as i was too young, but we beat palace 1-0. ( how things have changed )

Anyone know who scored? I have the programme still......somewhere, and have just been scrabbling about in
th loft for the last hour trying to find it.

Town 3-2 Watford. First home game of 1992/93 season.

I remember going to a friendly game at BP against Gainsborough before that season started too, which i always remember because of the referee making Dave Gilbert take a free-kick 3 times (scoring the first 2 but missing the 3rd).

That's very true...my son's first game was at Rushden 2003 where we managed to throw away a 1-0 lead and lose 3-1 but he's looking forward to going there again next season.



Was that when Macca managed to miss from about 4cm out near the end?

Same as myself and Green27 too. I remember I got a kids free voucher from school and begged my Dad to take me. All I remember from the game is some bald guy for them (Agnew?) and thinking that he must surely be too old to be playing football.

That must've been the same for me.

I've got a scrapbook from when I was younger and I've got a squad sheet from that match signed by Brian Laws
