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.

Took me ages to go away , southend away 1993-4 ? Livo scored the winner and I got covered in vandal paint climbing the fence to celebrate.  Also remember the kit man taking all the kit off the team bus and it was full of cases of carling black label for the long drive home !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember it well you travelled with some dodgy people that day!

I think mine would have been April 1972. 1-1 draw at Bury to clinch promotion. Clive Wiggington scored?

Lincoln away 71/72 season. We got thrashed 3-0. It was a night match, crowd 15,015. We didn't lose many that season but went up under McMenemy.
I remember walking away from Sincil Bank with my old mate Dave Solway (RIP) and a lincoln fan ran past us and nicked my scarf from my neck. Fantastic atmosphere at the ground. How many Div 4 games can attract 15,015 these days eh.

Now based in reading, do I class as an exile yet?

Took me an awful long time for me to go to an away match considering my first home match was in 1990.

My 1st away match Bournemouth was in May 2009. That if you discount a trip to Wembley.

Sheff Wed 7-1 Town


Can't remember any of their goals, but can remember Oster jinking his way towards goal and chipping in like it was yesterday. I spent most of the match wondering why people would eat their keys   then got a piccalilli sarnie on the way home. Good day.

Lincoln....Jan 1970 lost 2-0

The worst thing about it was getting on a coach from Brighowgate bus station and having some old bloke sitting alongside me smoking a pipe

I was sick about us losing but not as sick as I was from having him next to me!

donny away around 1980


Funny you say that, Donny away in Oct 79' was one of my first games watching City. Sir Gordon of Hobson scored the winner in a 1-0 morning kick off victory, in front of 9,693 (of which 3k+ were Imps).

1st ever away game (if you're interested?) was Mansfield away Apr 75' we lost 1-3 in front of 14,392 at Field Mill.

Was living down south at the time, so the firs "away" game was the Wimbledon cup game - actually got to meet Bobby Gould in the ticket office when we went to get our tickets.

When I moved back to Town, I think was Bolton away when we went 1-0 up, 3-1 down and then scored twice in the last 10 minutes to draw 3-3.

I can add further to that game, I was taking a throw in and it was at the open side at Sincil Bank and just as I was going to throw the ball a Police guy was taking a Town supporter who I new very well and he had a knife in his back, could not believe it, he ended up alright, bit of a character at the time and now he is one of the most respected people in the Town.

If someone can tell me which game came first out of these then that was the one late 70s at a guess?

League Cup Replay match drew with WOLVES then went to Derby for the 2nd replay

2-1 away win at Northampton on a Tuesday evening to win promotion,  I remember standing behind a rope by the sidelines as the old ground only had a stand at one side and 1 end I think.

1-0 away at Everton, league cup

Scunny (I lived there as a kid and teen) I think we drew 2-2, Wainman was in goal.

Lost 1-0 away at Coventry evening cup match

  Halifax away won 1-0

  Old age catching up and I just can't remember the defining moment

I can add further to that game, I was taking a throw in and it was at the open side at Sincil Bank and just as I was going to throw the ball a Police guy was taking a Town supporter who I new very well and he had a knife in his back, could not believe it, he ended up alright, bit of a character at the time and now he is one of the most respected people in the Town.

1979 League Cup 5th Round replay v Wolves at Derby's County Ground  - we lost and Wolves went on to win the final with a winner by Andy Gray


The most fundamental fact is that there is a trade-off between the ability to determine our own rules and access to foreign markets. This fact of life isn’t applicable just to the EU but to any advanced free trade agreement. If you take a purist position on sovereignty, we won’t get advanced trade deals, we will trade less and we will be poorer.

Quoted from marinernige
Man City in the league cup,about 1976,Main Road was a rough old place to go, Town lost 2-1,local kids used to take 50p of all the cars to'look after' them. Long journey back across the woodhead pass.


It was 78. We gave a group of kids £1.00 to look after the car. When we got back to it they stolen the cassette player but locked the car up again! My mate decided to report it to the Police and on the way to a Police Station we hit a Reliant Robin at an unmarked junction which disintegrated before our eyes leaving the driver holding the steering wheel like something out of a Roadrunner cartoon. Got home at 5 a.m.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

17.9.66 Brighton v GTFC. Town won 2-0 (Tees scored both but I admit I had to look that bit up!) We lived down there then so doesn't really count.

First away match back in Grimsby was Lincoln 2 Town 1 in the League Cup in 1970. It was a night match. We went in BenBowers grandads Bedford van!! Town scored first and missed a twice taken penalty. The only other thing I remember is Town fans invading the pitch led by a bugler!!

Stoke Away, early 90's - Town needed to win to get promoted to then 2nd division. We drew and won the last game against Exeter I think.

Abiding memories was of 1000's of Stoke fans invading the pitch and running at us in the away end....

My mate got hit by a Reliant Robin while walking across a junction down Park St.

It was braking as it approached the end of the street and my mate had time to jump in the air and he landed on the bonnet.The thing just collapsed and my mate rolled off unhurt.

Funny as fook.

Hmmm, I was at that game. Police horses and the lot. I remember them throwing the corner flags at us too.

What was it all about? "Revenge" for what happened at BP earlier in the season?

My first ever away game was at Notts County - David Ellery was the referee (he was shocking!) he sent off Rhys Wilmott and Graham Rodger, we had to put Tommy Watson in goal - he made them retake a penalty which they still didn't score from then Gary Lund popped up and scored against us anyway!! 0-1 defeat.

Leeds in 1996?? FA Cup game lost 2-0.

I was about 10. Me and my dad, god bless him, got tickets in the home end, due to the fact we knew a lot of Leeds fans, I sat there with a GTFC hat on and the stewards removed us.
ended up in the away end!

I had moved to Stoke by then, it was funny cos one of the Stokies with a corner flag was a work colleague; I really took the P out of him on the Monday for failing to look hard. I also had to catch a bus home after the game which was a bit worrying but no problem in the end.

I think it may have been Wimbledon in the Cup in 89. Or round about that period. A long wait after my first home game. For 20 years its home games that have been the rarity.

Wimbledon 3 Town 6 in 1980. Got me hooked on away games after that, not suprisingly. I had the flu before the game but it mysteriously vanished as the goals flew in. We sang at their goalkeeper, "Raymond Goddard is our friend, he let's goals in," all through the second half.

It would be nice to have a few games like that next season...


"That Grimsby team was pound for pound, and class for class, the best football team I have seen in England since the war. In the league they were in they played football nobody else could play. Everything was measured, planned and perfected and you could not wish to see more entertaining football."    Bill Shankly

1979 Sheff Wednesday away - Lost 2-0. Then went to loads away that season in cups and for the promotion push. Mansfield at the end of the season was fantastic - I seem to remeber us filling three sides of the ground.

FA Cup away at Coventry, 3rd Feb 1973 - my 7th birthday!  Robbed by a Mick Coop penalty in about the 93rd minute, gutted all the way home in my dad's mates Morris Minor.



That was my first away game too.  An epic performance but we were cruly denied by a dodgy refereeing decision. I think Oldfootballer played.

It was never a penalty..........

Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. Was it where Trevor Whymark was our great white hope and was carried off within 5 minutes?

Scrub my previous, I went to this one too. I remember Ipswich was a toilet.

this was my first away game as well, can remember we had a section of the wednesday end and had to walk through their fans to get to it, was pretty scary... a bloke next to me got hit on the head with a half brick in the first half & was cut pretty bad.. threw it back but always hated the yorkie scum since
