Aldershot in 1979, stood in the Barrat stand when I was 8 years old. 1-1 with a couple of disallowed goals. Haven't a clue who was playing at the time.

7th Sept 1966,  Grimsby 7  Scumthorpe 1

Crap game, the players were hopeless and the manager should have been sacked.

Aston Villa, the first match of the season in 1947-48. We won 3-0 and Billy Cairns scored twice. It was the day they opened , for the first time, the 'Boys Paddock" which was attached to the Cleethorpes end of the Barrett Stand.

The attendance that day was over 20,000 and it seemed that half of them were in the paddock.When the game ended I was met by my mum and dad outside the ground and I was so bedraggled and dirty they could hardly recognise me.

Up to a few weeks ago I was quite proud of the length of time I've been going until I was chatting to a
great old boy who first watched Town eighty-three years ago. He is still a season ticket holder and his seat is towards the top of the Upper Findus. That must be some record.

Yup,us spring Lambs,Pete.

1955 for me,and I cannot remember the game,all I can remember is Bob Crosbie up front, Clarry in goal and Jimmy Maddison on the wing and thinking he looked far too old to be a footballer.

Incidently I still take Icenian senior to games and he started in 1933 and has had a season ticket eversince apart from the little contratemp with Adolf.
