Sorry if this has been a thread in the recent past but am just interested to know if you can remember your first ever town match? Opponents, score, scorers etc. Mine was Torquay at bp in the late eighties. Town won 1-0 and I think john cockerill got the goal, might be wrong tho

Exeter City. Last game on the season in 1972. Won 3-0 to clinch the old 4th Division Championship.

Went with my sister, stood at the back of the pontoon and couldn't see a single thing all game.

Peterborough in April 1990. Was a promotion season from Div 4. Had won the previous 6/7 matches and I attended on a cold Tues night in the Findus and lost 2-1. Big Keef scored in the second half with a header from a corner into the pontoon end.

I think this was my first 'proper' game too(my first was in 1984 as a five year old against Fulham). the score was 1-0 and Livvo scored against Shaka Hislop following a Dave Gilbert free kick!

I rarely got taken when I was really young but I remember my first game attended being Grimsby Town 3-1 Portsmouth, 29/12/2001. I think it was Groves' first game in charge. Peter Crouch was the scorer for them and Jevons got two for us, one a penalty I think. I don't remember a lot about the game but I know the Dad missed two goals while getting me a Mars bar.

The first home game after the Auto Windscreens win against Oldham in 1998. We lost 2-0.
Posted by: Mariner_501, October 22, 2010, 2:04pm; Reply: 23
Last home game of the season around 2002ish. Beat Burnley 3-1 and Gazza played for them I think. My earliest memory was a goal from Boulding, think it was bobbling around and he just managed to slide it between the keepers legs and the crowd going mental, unless I was imagining in. Hooked ever since, shame it's been downhill ever since except Slade's second season.

If anyone can find any highlights of that game please please please send me the link.  :)

Aston Villa, the first match of the season in 1947-48. We won 3-0 and Billy Cairns scored twice. It was the day they opened , for the first time, the 'Boys Paddock" which was attached to the Cleethorpes end of the Barrett Stand.

The attendance that day was over 20,000 and it seemed that half of them were in the paddock.When the game ended I was met by my mum and dad outside the ground and I was so bedraggled and dirty they could hardly recognise me.

Up to a few weeks ago I was quite proud of the length of time I've been going until I was chatting to a
great old boy who first watched Town eighty-three years ago. He is still a season ticket holder and his seat is towards the top of the Upper Findus. That must be some record.

1955 for me,and I cannot remember the game,all I can remember is Bob Crosbie up front, Clarry in goal and Jimmy Maddison on the wing and thinking he looked far too old to be a footballer.

Incidently I still take Icenian senior to games and he started in 1933 and has had a season ticket eversince apart from the little contratemp with Adolf.

Those two games were actually at the end of the 80-81 season...

In 1980, the year before, we certainly didn't copulate it up...last game was the 4-0 drubbing of Sheff U to win the league!

My first game was Feb 64....home draw v Huddersfield and stood up against the fence in the Imp Corner

As a little kid nothing could touch the Beatles until I started watching Town!

It was April 81. West Ham won the cup the year before against The Gooners. Somebody called Cross scored 4 for them that day.

Just looked it up and there was a gap of three weeks between the two 5-1 defeats. I thought they were back to back. We won only one of our last seven or so games and that was at Wednesday. Makes you wonder whether the then board were panicking about the possibility of the Town getting into the First Division.

Sorry Old Timer, it wasn't.

This guy really was one of the best centre forwards - certainly one of the fastest - when I first played in Grimsby league football. He still has a great sense of humour because he reckons the bloody drum is the only reason people can't hear his heart thumping by the time he gets up to his seat.

I'm not sure but when Town have two games in a week he may stay up there for a few days to save his legs

First game was against Middlesbrough in 1985. I was 13 at the time and only seem to remember the metal fences we all had to peer through. I still have the programme and a certain Brian Laws played for Boro that day. Later research tells me that we won 4-3 (great game apparently, shame about those bloody fences) and that it was the season when the Osmond Stand was the new home end and the away fans were in the Pontoon.

My first visits to BP were for reserve games as school would do trips to reserve games when we played a bigger team and I remember being absolutely freezing watching our reserves getting thumped by Liverpools second XI one night, the likes of Mike Hooper, Craig Johnston and Barry Vennison were playing for them. But my first proper game was when we beat Wolves 1-0 in the first round of the FA Cup in 1988.

Exeter City. Last game on the season in 1972. Won 3-0 to clinch the old 4th Division Championship.

Went with my sister, stood at the back of the pontoon and couldn't see a single thing all game.

Never forget them supporters who went and sat on the old Barratt stand, a incredible night for all players and supporters alike.

The gaffer at half time went berserk in the dressing room, and nobody argued with Laurie Mac his words were them supporters have come tonight to see you win the league champoinship and get out there and kick hell out of Exeter.

Which we did in big time.
Fabulous night that was never ever forget it.

14-Feb-1970 League Division 4 Home to Workington Town. 1-1
Only thing I remember is they wore green shirts and they had a ginger ninja who looked my Welholme school teacher, Mr. Wilkinson!  :)

I thought they were Workington Town. tintowner and boroughparker are adamant that we are wrong

According to wikipedia they have only ever been called Workington AFC, there is no mention of the word Town in their name ever.

Just dug out an old programme from, the 72/73 season, the old black and white fronted prog with the dock tower on the front. It was when they used to have the League Football insert in them and in this one there is a picture of Workington 72/73, no mention of Town after the name.

As a player we always called them Workington Town, never liked playing at the damned place always a tough game.

Christmas Day 1944 Town 2 Lincoln City 2. Losing 0 - 2 when my brother-in-law and I left to catch a train back to Healing from New Clee Station 10 minutes before the end. Story of my life at Blundell Park - missed all the good bits. Living in hope. Maybe tonight........
