How old were you (and your kids) when you first went to Hillsborough?

Recommended Posts

I was 8.

To be honest I'm itching to to take my lads - one is 17months the other 3 1/2. Just wondered what the average age was? I've been up the top of the South and seen young kids recently. So how old were you and for the parents among you how old were your kids when you first took them?

Me, a rather pathetic 13 because my dad doesn't like football.

My youngest daughter was about 5 months and my oldest daughter was 3 months. She also has had a season ticket since age three and only misses night games.

8 year old.

1989 against Liverpool won 2-0, don't remember the match but do remember stood in the kop- where tango stands now.

Still gives me goose pimples remembering watching the kop surge forward like a wave. Will never forgot that moment.

The day Wednesday chose me..

9. Boxing Day 1984 vs Aston Villa.

My boy was 5, but TBH, it is too young. They've got to really be in to it to keep their attention, otherwise they're wanting to go to the snack bar or whatever.

7 or 8 is about right, but always worth a try at a preseason friendly. That way you're not really missing anything.

UTO :biggrin:

1988 and I was 8.

Lost 3-0 at home to Tottenham.

I think Tony Galvin was on the cover of the programme, still got it somewhere at me Mum's.

3 weeks old. Didn't have a name and was named after the first Wednesday goal scorer in that match (vs Luton in April 1981 I think). Kevin Taylor scored.
