I was there with my mate and our Dads, think they were leathered! Got a taxi from Alty for 20 quid, I wa about 11 at the time.... remember everyone in fancy dress and getting legged down the streets after by some Stokies...can't look my Dad in the eye since - shitbag ;-)
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.
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.
