I remember Gordon Walker - but not for long.  He was 6 feet 4 and once scored a cracker from outside the penalty area in front of the Pontoon.

He was said by some to be a great prospect with a lot of potential.  Well,  Kevin Drinkell he wasn't. He did not stay long.

Quoted from grimsby pete


You old git    mine was in the same stand in 1955 aged 7 my dad made me go in the boys paddock when we had a big game so I did not get crushed.


My first game [actually I was a guest player ] at Abbey Park. I was only a teenager but the memory of tripping over my shorts still stays  to this day although my memory often plays tricks with me.

Welcome Epworth. It’s great having another oldie on here. I’m feeling younger and younger  all the time!


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I've always understood age is relative.... I think what that means  is that nowadays most of my relatives are younger than me

In the same way I'm an excellent uncle. I'm stupendous. I'm a Great Uncle 7 times over.

My first ever match was when my football-mad mother took me
to see Town play Notts County about the time WW11 ended.

I recall little about the game itself apart from sitting in the Osmond
stand, but I do seem to recall Golfer walking round the pitch before
the game carrying the board which announced team changes.

My first full season was our very last one in the original Div. 1.
The first game, viewed from the boys' paddock was when we
thrashed Villa 3 - 0, one of our very few victories.

Can remember us playing Man U, but can't remember who we
played last week

In awe, I salute you! Would the Notts County game be End of May 45, in the Football League North 2nd competition?
