This was my first game it was at fellows park obviously against Man City 1989 game ended up a 3-3 draw just remember sitting on the bars with my dad behind me and the smell of cigar smoke never looked back!
January 1975, Tuesday evening game against Grimsby that we won 2-0 - quickly followed by another home victory (3-0 against Bury) on the Saturday. This was immediately after the replay win over Man Utd and my dad took me down to get the vouchers required to be able to buy tickets for the 4th round game against Newcastle.
Loved it from the 1st minute - and, like @Scooby2167, I also remember the evocative smell of cigars/pipes under the roof of the Street End.
I think it was against Oxford in 1968? with my dad and uncles in the old laundry end, because i remember there being a lot of wet red sand left over from some building work, and an Oxford fan making a sandball throwing it and knocking a coppers helmet off and we lost
There were over 10,000 for that Bury game, at the time it would have been the biggest crowd I had been in at FP for a League game. Buckley scored a fantastic goal, and iirc we scored our three goals in nine minutes - however, it was a long time ago.
I remember that night well. My dad was away and couldn’t take me, so my grandad, who lived in Darlo, took me instead. Buckley scored one of the goals, another trademark overhead kick although memory tells me this one was from 18 yards out.
That’d be the last game of that season. Mark Rees came on as a sub and managed to get two bookings in no time at all. The second was preposterous though…someone played a crossfield ball to him out on the wing, but it was going up over his head. So he jumped up, caught it, stopped it going out of play into the crowd and he placed the ball down. The ref decided that was worthy of a second yellow for deliberate handball!
31st January 1998 vs Preston North End, a 1-1 draw according to internet searches. I remember it being a schools ticket offer and we got the tickets cheap. I was also identifying as a Man Utd fan at that point in time.
