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.


Christ on a bike. How does he get up there?? I was only on Row L last week and had to make base camp somewhere around Row D


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

Quoted from cmackenzie4
can anyone remeber the west ham game were they beat us at home,i cant remember the year,i thinkl it was 1980 [ im sure they won the fa cup this year ] trevor brooking and phil parkes was playing,we got beat by 5 i think,i would like to hear if anyone was at the game and what the actual score was etc


It was April 81. West Ham won the cup the year before against The Gooners. Somebody called Cross scored 4 for them that day.

Just looked it up and there was a gap of three weeks between the two 5-1 defeats. I thought they were back to back. We won only one of our last seven or so games and that was at Wednesday. Makes you wonder whether the then board were panicking about the possibility of the Town getting into the First Division.

Grimsby 3 Newport 0. First game of the re-election season 68/69. Talk about false dawns...

Sorry Old Timer, it wasn't.

This guy really was one of the best centre forwards - certainly one of the fastest - when I first played in Grimsby league football. He still has a great sense of humour because he reckons the bloody drum is the only reason people can't hear his heart thumping by the time he gets up to his seat.

I'm not sure but when Town have two games in a week he may stay up there for a few days to save his legs

Quoted from Richard


Everton in league cup classy winger 2 headed goals-he never scored with his head
the sad thing about this is the young kids wont have the kind of memories i have when they get older


Either my memory or yours is going as I dont recall either of Mike Brolly's goals against Everton being headers? One definetly wasnt
