Was the score 1-0 to Town or was that the following season?

I remember a night match against them around this time when I think they were top of the league or certainly going for promotion. We used to be in the good old Barrett Stand going in through the upstairs door back right (from the back) and during the match about 100 of their “mob” suddenly entered that stand which was very unusual as away fans were never in that part of the ground. It was the skinhead, bovver boot and denim era and quite frightening for a 14 year old.

Think there may have been a few punches thrown but thankfully nothing more. Funnily enough can’t remember the game at all!!!!!

After this match on the Good Friday about 200 of us Boot Boys/ Skin heads made our way to Wonderland heading to Cleethorpes, this was unusual as we normally went back to Cleethorpes pubs down Grimsby Road tracked by Police Officers,going mainly to the Dolphin & Vic after the match, but this time some leather clad Gypos/Rockers among us persuaded us to go via Wonderland, i had never seen these blokes before & they were not Boot Boys or Skinheads, when we got to Wonderland we were attacked by some 200 or more Gypos/ Rockers, we were set up, it was a trap, we fought them on the beeches, on the prom, in Wonderland, some of you on here were probably there so i won't mention names, i managed to fight my way to Steels but Stateside had already been smashed up, the last fight i remember i was fighting some bloke in Cleethorpes Market place against a Rocker who said he was Captain America, it was a massacre as we got hit unexpectedly. Some time later we got revenge on them, they came up the Cleethorpes station approach towards Bunnys Place, but this time we were ready, we had hundreds of bottles which we threw in the air which came crashing down on them, then as they ran away we attacked them and took our revenge, all from that Good Friday game against Chesterfield. I know it was 50 years ago, but back then most big clubs had Skinheads/Bootboys, we had a massive away following & our lot never ran away, it was what we did back then, i would'nt have changed that for anything, it was so bloody exiting for a young man.

The first away trip I drove to was Chesterfield in 1968.

A40 MK I and I was a learner driver, but I took my mate and his Dad, who sat in the passenger seat.

Got there ok and sat with mainly older Chesterfield fans, who were very friendly but the guy next to me had a teenage son who turned bitter as the game progressed; and we won 2-1.  

On the way back in Swallow, a car stopped suddenly in the road and the hydraulic and rod rear brakes on my car, where not as good as theirs and I ran into the back. No real damage and no one was hurt, but not knowing what to do, I reported it to the police station in Grimsby. I was the only one and that cost me a fine and points on the licence.
