Mine was at Anfield in 1979-1980 season. We lost 5-0. Half of Grimsby was there that day. Don't remember much about it myself though.

It would be against Hull but I'm buggered if I can remember when.   There were always so many of us on the ferry it almost felt like a home game.

Not counting both Wembley games in 98, my Dad never went to away games (and still doesn't really) so never went to any as a young kid until i could go with some mates from school.

Think this was my first one:

EDIT: just also remembered the Sheffield Wednesday cup game when we lost 7-1 which my Dad took me too.

Liverpool, October 2001. Not a bad first one to choose. Been to about 30 since and can only remember a couple of wins off the top of my head.
