1986 that pal I remember it well

 

Dont know who we were playing for my first match but was stood on the crows nest with my dad and saw North Stand erupt when we scored.

I was hooked after that. It’d be around 81-82

I was 8 years old.   Strange, my kid is 7 and is on his third season ticket.

Was that the one where the fan was behind Banno when he scored and did the diving header?

Cant really remember mine. I've got a fuzzy memory of Prendo or Joicey scoring at the lepps with a header and can also visualise Tommy Craig placing the ball for a penalty at the kop end. My memory is that TC was in the shirt with the  blue body and white sleeves and the other was in stripes so probably Tommy's was the first. Two other early memories are Peter Mellor playing in goal with his white hair for Fulham and loads of scrapping on the kop when we played Burnley. My dad had to shield me from the violence and said he'd never take me again. It was made worse when we got back to the car and it had been vandalised. He did take me one more time, to an away game at Chesterfield. We found a fairly quiet spot on the side terrace but just before kick off loads of Wednesday fans took the kop. They were escorted round the ground and thrown into the terrace with us. They were scrapping with the police all the way through and tried to invade the pitch a few times. That was it for him.

1 of 4, Boxing Day 1979. Can't recall who we played though. lol

That wasn’t the first goal I saw at Hillsborough, but it happens to be my favourite. 

I never knew Mr Mellor had a right foot until that moment.
