Sorry if this has been a thread in the recent past but am just interested to know if you can remember your first ever town match? Opponents, score, scorers etc. Mine was Torquay at bp in the late eighties. Town won 1-0 and I think john cockerill got the goal, might be wrong tho

All I remember is it was against reading in 94 or 95.

Exeter City. Last game on the season in 1972. Won 3-0 to clinch the old 4th Division Championship.

Went with my sister, stood at the back of the pontoon and couldn't see a single thing all game.

Peterborough in April 1990. Was a promotion season from Div 4. Had won the previous 6/7 matches and I attended on a cold Tues night in the Findus and lost 2-1. Big Keef scored in the second half with a header from a corner into the pontoon end.

I think this was my first 'proper' game too(my first was in 1984 as a five year old against Fulham). the score was 1-0 and Livvo scored against Shaka Hislop following a Dave Gilbert free kick!

I rarely got taken when I was really young but I remember my first game attended being Grimsby Town 3-1 Portsmouth, 29/12/2001. I think it was Groves' first game in charge. Peter Crouch was the scorer for them and Jevons got two for us, one a penalty I think. I don't remember a lot about the game but I know the Dad missed two goals while getting me a Mars bar.
