I think that season was my first match, could be wrong, but i knew it was home to Carlisle and finished 0-0. Awful game.

 

Be forever grateful you didn't start going 5 years earlier :laugh:

76 - 77 season

 


12. Sat 23 Oct  SHREWSBURY TOWN......... 0-1     6     17,030   
13. Sat 30 Oct  MANSFIELD TOWN.......... 0-2    11     15,559   

14. Tue  2 Nov  ROTHERHAM UNITED........ 1-3    12     18,204   Rodger Wylde

 

I was at all 3 of these games, what miserable times they were...

 

I think Sir Rodger missed a spot kick against Shrewsbury who won a bit against the run of play. “Wednesday pay the penalty” was a headline the next day. We weren’t very good back then but strangely, they remain some of my fondest memories as a fan.

 

pS it would be interesting to know how many teams got a crowd better than 18k back then even in Div 1

Think Baggies went down that season and had already been relegated at that point. We had just lost the Semi v Everton and the atmosphere was completely flat. My only trip to the Hawthorns.

 

Cold and wet Tuesday night and a shitty away end.

the lowest average in div 1 that season was 17k (Leicester )who also had the lowest highest gate of 26k so they all did   ...our average was 11k second only to Wrexham who just topped by a 100 or so .

I'm sure my first game was a 0-0 draw at home versus Southend, maybe 77/78 season. I will look it up unless any stattos on here have the facts? I was at the 0-0 Carlisle game when we got promoted, remember the pitch invasion but my Gran didn't fancy running on lol

It was so dire back then it was almost funny.

 

Away days were like Lincoln, Mansfield and Chesterfield.
