Quoted from Richard
i was there lost 1-5 then lost 5-1 at cambridge we were doing realy well with 3 games 2 go then copulated yes  it was n1980


Those two games were actually at the end of the 80-81 season...

In 1980, the year before, we certainly didn't copulate it up...last game was the 4-0 drubbing of Sheff U to win the league!

My first game was Feb 64....home draw v Huddersfield and stood up against the fence in the Imp Corner

As a little kid nothing could touch the Beatles until I started watching Town!

Quoted from arryarryarry
7th Sept 1966,  Grimsby 7  Scumthorpe 1

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


Unfortunately i was also at that game we were absolutely robbed 5 offside goals ,a disputed penalty and a deflection.The ref was a real homer.To our credit though all 13  Scunny fans stayed to the bitter end.

Quoted from theicenian



Jimmy Maddison on the wing and thinking he looked far too old to be a footballer.



My dad used to take me to the Osmond Stand and I remember Maddison haring down the wing and having that exact same thought!

My uncle who is now pushing 90 used to watch them in the 1930's and says that even then the ground was only full when Town played Arsenal at home

Quoted from Caveman
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.


it wasnt Terry who runs the supporters bus was it brian

Mine was against Norwich in 97/98 I think, can't remember scores etc.

First game I can remember going to is the Auto Windscreen Final 1998.
