No goalie gloves. When did keepers start to wear them?

Although I had been to games before the one that sticks out was the late 80s. I think we went down under Bobby Roberts. We needed to win to get in a relegation play off. I am sure I haven't imagined it, but I think initially three from the division below played off against fourth bottom for the right to be in that division. Sure we lost 2-1????


87/88 season. That Aldershot game ended 1 all. If we'd have won we'd have stayed up and Rotherham would have been relegated.

It was the first season of the play-offs and the only season when the team finishing one place above the relegation zone of the above division played in them and Rotherham ended up getting relegated anyway. Aldershot finished 1 place above Rotherham but the following season they finished bottom of Division 3 and folded a couple of seasons later,  whereas Rotherham went on to win the 4th Division title the next season.

I may be losing it but wasn't that the one where Mark North missed a pen and Bobby Roberts wasn’t there as he was on a coaching course or something?

Marc North did miss a penalty, not sure about the Bobby Roberts bit, though something vaguely rings a bell it might be correct.

Harry Wainman wore gloves. I remember buying a pair from Norris The Rubberman that we’re billed Harry’s gloves (they were very similar to those Thinsulate gloves that sell on markets nowadays so not exactly specialist).

Goalies have always worn gloves. They used to be leather or woollen and the reason was that in cold or wet weather the goalie would be doing more punching the ball than catching it. That was what Gordon Banks used to say. The first proper goalie gloves were developed by the West German goalie Sepp Mayer for the 1970 WC. They looked huge and there was talk that they gave him an unfair advantage and should be banned.

Did you get the red wine from Harry’s off-licence when he changed his retail?
