Have I imagined this, and if not can anyone help me pin it down?

I'm pretty sure that for some seasons, the Match of the Day intro included a clip of Tony Ford celebrating one of his goals against Portsmouth in 1979.

I want to approach the BBC for permission to use a still in the Grimsby anthology, but it would obviously help if I knew what on earth I was talking about before I try and talk to them. Can anyone confirm I am right and when they used the clip in their intro.

No sign of that goal for me, remember the day well as we drew with Grimsby Amateurs in cup quarter final, I scored winner in replay on George V the following week and then broke me leg in semi final v App Frod.

Think it was first time town had ever been on MoD. Start of a golden period in our history

They were on a few years earlier away to Bournemouth, Lawrie Mac was manager

Goalie Ian Turner injured a hand during the game, so played outfield for while before being substituted.  Clive Wiggington went in goal


<'(((((<

When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby


Tell me Mam me Mam
I dont want no tea no tea
I'm watching the Grimsby
Tell me Mam me mam

I went to that game on the old supporters bus, set off at midnight and got there about 6.00am.

No its not the current credits- it was some years ago. There's a few on You Tube but none the one I remember (or have imagined)

Can I be the first to ask "Why"?


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

Why did I go or why did we set off at 12.00am.

Probably because Sid who used to organise the bus wanted to make sure we got there on time.

We all ended up wandering around the sea front at some God forsaken hour.

Your dead right I played in that game, it was also on the local Television and guess who was Bournmouths Manager the Great Harry Redknap who obviously went onto bigger things.
