I have just shown the pics to Howard Yeats and Charlie and they are gobsmacked!!!! As I have only known Howards for about five years I cannot beleive he was that young once jajajajajaj (think even he had trouble recognising himself and certainly Charlie is still not sure if its him or not!!!!!!!!

Its uncanny coz we are here in sunny Spain an d i just found this post with them both here in my shop. Small world or what.

I was behind the goal in the family stand that day.

The year before I was in the stand at the side of the pitch.

Yes, you brought 12,000 out of a 24,000 crowd.

Ace photos...but one question...what was the score again?...

3-1....that big stump Dave Bamber got a couple for you lot if I remember correctly....I guess you knew the score though!

Great days, I was there with three mates though oddly I can't remember who one of them was. Yeah, the result was shit, but it was an experience that will always live with me, and I doubt we shall see anything like it again. Different world. As far away from now as crowds wearing flat caps and waving football rattles.

And Gleghorn netted for you IIRC...he went on to become a real hero at Stoke, netting our promotion clinching goal when we were in Div 3 in 93/94.

ps I remember that big red inflatable parrot like it was yesterday...great times.
