Cold tues night in April 1990. Grimsby 1 Peterboro2.

It was Buckleys first promotion year from div 4 to div 3. Had won 6/7 in a row prior to that match so my dad took me to see my first match and we ended up losing. Set me up well

I have no idea, but I was stood in the old Barrats I think. I remember Tony Ford was playing though. He was the only one I knew for some reason...!

My first EVER game was at Sincil Bank watching Lincoln v Colchester. We live in a pub in Lincoln and some locals took me along to a game when I was about 4-5. I remember it vividly as these 2 clown thought it's be great to start chanting "COLCHESTER!" To which the half a dozen Gimps to our left all chanted back "excrement!" And so it went on! Hated Lincoln ever since!

Quoted from Abdul19


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


That's the one...Macca somehow missed his chance which would have been an equaliser for us and then about 30 seconds later they went down and scored to make it 3-1

Can't remember my first game as i initially started going to sell the Sports Telegraph in 1970/71 season.

Would get knocked from pillar to post standing outside the Imperial Avenue gates trying to sell them once the game kicked out.Soon got fed up and spent most of my time watching the game instead of selling papers.

I was quickly relieved of my duties but have been going ever since.
