A lot of the above, plus a 5-2 win at Rochdale on a Tuesday night after going 2-0 down in half an hour. They had a tricky  little winger and he ripped us apart for a bit. Then we got a grip and smashed it. I remember a Rochdale fan coming up to us at 2-0 and saying that we were in for a right tonking, ha ha. Old Division 4 days, magic.


I was also at that game, if my memory serves me right us fans changed ends at half-time.

Another of the few games that I can still remember at that time was when we hammered Darlington 7-2 at BP.....6-0 up at half-time.

Plymouth away on a Tuesday night (i think...maybe a Friday ..lol ) we won 1-0...Mendonca rounding Rhys Wilmott to score in front of  a very happy away terrace...when you go that far all you want is something to cheer and Super Clive delivered.

Post edit -

it was 91/92 and it was 2-1.....how the memory plays tricks.


I was there that night. Pouring with rain and the 100 or so Town fans doing the conga in the away end.

And how could you forget that rare Mark Lever goal in the first half!

Carlisle away April 98. A couple of days after the highs of seeing Town's first ever game at Wembley with 30k others, it was a bit of a come down being one of a 100 strong following in a crowd of less than 4k at Carlisle only a couple of days later. Somehow the team found enough energy to scrape a 1-0 win in a really poor game to keep our promotion chasing momentum going..

Anyone remember an end of season game v Brighton at BP?  Probably early to mid 1980s - I think we were 2-0 up with about 10 mins to play and we liost 4-2.   I dont think the Brighton team or fans could quite believe their luck.

I remember that game well, Peter Grotier was in goal for us that night. It could and should have been 5 as they missed an easy chance at the death,

Yep he was awful the worst keeper ive seen and weve had a few 2 of the 4 goals went straight through him at the near post another was a screamer and pretty sure the other was an header from a few yeards out he should have caught?

67-68 vs Bristol Rovers won 3-2 Gary Moore, Graham Taylor and Dave Boyle.
Should have been 5-2 Taylor had a couple ruled out, remember this game well.
Taylor had a great game and was booked as well. He never stopped smiling.
Sadly we went down, Taylor moved to Lincoln.

I was at that game and believe it was first time I had seen Boylen play and remember being really impressed with him. Don’t remember Taylor getting a goal but as it was 50 years ago not surprised. Recall “Sweet Mary Moore” not being a favourite with Barrett Stand fans and upon leaving us he scored quite a few goals for Southend.

As for games I recall taking two non-town supporting work mates to midweek game I think in 78 or 79 v Northampton resulting in 4-3 home win. We stood in the Barrett Stand and they actually loved the atmosphere that stand generated. Such a shame that had to go as it really was a key part of the enjoyment in going to town matches particularly night games.
