Quoted from Heswall Mariner
You do!  -  I am somewhat hazy as a nine year old at the time - but totally obsessed 62 years later. Johnie Scott, Mike Cullen, Oh dear Ralph Hunt I can go on I have seen the Mariners at Rhyl, Runcorn . Southport, & at Old Trafford in a FA Cup 2nd replay against Barrow - 2 -0  Matt Tees who else?.
Good Pub Quiz that one - attendance circa 9000.


A bit older than you SONNY- first match of season. How things change in such a short time-went to see Town at Bristol won 7-0- a week later my first time at Leyton Orient  we go and lose 5-1. and they say Town are NOW inconsistent

Welcome to the forum. You may need some thick skin on here at times, and if you have missed some schooling and are a bit behind there are a few who will put you right , especially  spelling, As it is more importenter to spell than putting a good point across. Does not matter if you have a good bank balance, 4 houses, own boat on the broads, 3 cars and 4 holidays a year you will be classed as thick  


That's true one of our posters does have a big house with a snooker table with a £80,000 + car and owns a footy club but he can not spell.

PS.    Neither can I but I am thick and not a  successful business man.

My first game was stood on an upturned Lemonade box at the front of the Barratt Stand with my father in 1951 ( I was 5 Sat the time ) . I remember him going on about this manager we had who he said was great . It turned out to be Bill Shankley. I only remember that the other team played in red shirts and white shorts. I'm not too sure of the score but we may have  won 2-0.

I doubt if many remember Bill Shankly singing over the P.A. system just prior to kick off, every home game.
Grimsby for fish, Grimsby for football, to the tune of the Pompey chimes.

Bill Shankly was born in Glenbuck.
I had a minute share in a horse called Glenbuck, won quite a few races for us.
Travelling to Ayr racecourse for the Gold Cup meeting, I passed the village of Glenbuck.
And yes Glenbuck won that day.

Welcome Epworth.

My first game was when I was about 7, also as others in the Lower Barrett stand.
Dad worked with Jimmy Fell at Laportes and we were mainly there to see him.
