No pyro no party

Yeah I remember being at Chester...super intelligent Owls fans were setting paper on fire....dropping it down so it burned the rubbish below under the wooden floors we were stood on....!!!!! ...and singing 'Chesters stand is burning down' .... Sadly what happened at Bradford was just waiting to happen anywhere tbh...we drew 1-1 sure Ian Rush scored for Chester!! My mates mini broke down before we even left Chester after the game...

Yep there was a fire at the back of the stand. If I recall correctly we lost quite heavily (4-1 I think). Went on the Chapeltown & Penistone supporters bus and managed to get back to Penistone in time to get some chips from Bert Savilles chippy. Back to school next morning. I was 16 at the time.

Just shows, unfortunately, that hooliganism and mindless vandalism at football matches is not just a modern curse on the game, and certainly nothing to be proud of. I have never been a 'snitch' and am often at loggerheads with many policing methods, but I would have no hesitation in reporting this behaviour to club.stewards or police. It's something that's not necessary,only gets clubs and decent supporters bad reputations, and invites further more 'active' stewardship in the future. It's not necesary, and not what's wanted at a football match. If you want to go to cause mayhem, go to a boxing club, and relieve your frustrations in the ring. Leave us who want to watch football,and by that I mean BOTH sides, to do so in peace. Or maybe join the Reserve Army!

Yes. Some idiots did indeed set fire to a pile of paper and firewood at the Wednesday end. As I recall, the terrace was at least in part made of wood. The police were jeered as they tried to put out the flames and the usual contingent of nutters who invaded the Preston end were escorted to the away end to join in with the strains of "Preston town is burning down". Not the proudest moment in the history of the game and whilst there is still some way to go, thank goodness that such events are much rarer these days.

Think the fire was lit in 75/76 when we lost 4-2, 76/77 was the game for the programme in the OP and we lost 4-1 then following season think we went down 2-1. Went to all of them.

 

The fire thing was sheer stupidity on our part and after that the police were keeping a watchful eye on us.
