Only thing I remember is they wore green shirts and they had a ginger ninja who looked my Welholme school teacher, Mr. Wilkinson!

Quoted from Les Brechin
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.

Never forget them supporters who went and sat on the old Barratt stand, a incredible night for all players and supporters alike.

The gaffer at half time went berserk in the dressing room, and nobody argued with Laurie Mac his words were them supporters have come tonight to see you win the league champoinship and get out there and kick hell out of Exeter.

Which we did in big time.
Fabulous night that was never ever forget it.

According to wikipedia they have only ever been called Workington AFC, there is no mention of the word Town in their name ever.

Just dug out an old programme from, the 72/73 season, the old black and white fronted prog with the dock tower on the front. It was when they used to have the League Football insert in them and in this one there is a picture of Workington 72/73, no mention of Town after the name.

As a player we always called them Workington Town, never liked playing at the damned place always a tough game.

Christmas Day 1944 Town 2 Lincoln City 2. Losing 0 - 2 when my brother-in-law and I left to catch a train back to Healing from New Clee Station 10 minutes before the end. Story of my life at Blundell Park - missed all the good bits. Living in hope. Maybe tonight........
