What was the first away game you went to?

For me, it was away at Watford in March 1994 in the first division (Championship). Comfortable 3-0 win for town. About 5000 at Vicarage Road (150ish town fans). I remember the Watford fans invading the pitch at full time to protest against the board and tried to storm the director's box.

Coventry away at Highfield Road 4th round of the FA Cup. Grimsby born Mick Coop scored from a dubious penalty in the last five minutes. Think it was 1973 and I cried most of the way home!

Forest away 1993, lost 5-3. Possibly their first home league game post Brian Clough?

The Futcher back pass that rolled in for an OG As Paul Crichton missed his kick.

Sheffield United, May 1995. The main things I remember:

- Bramall Lane only had 3 stands
- They were chucking loads of free tat into the crowd because it was the last game of the season and I was annoyed I couldn't get any of it as we were sat in the upper tier of the away end
- Dave Bassett did some sort of lap of honour for some reason at full-time
- Absolutely nothing about the game, can't even find out who scored for us.

Pretty sure it was Scunthorpe when Graham Oates scored twice in a 2-1 victory, I know goals are You Tube but can’t remember the exact season but around 1970.

That was my second away match. First was Lincoln in 1971-72. Think we lost 2-0.
