I'm not sure which year was which, I seem to remember the Hirsty one being first, but can't remember what year, I just recall being at both.

The Hirsty one we had a goal disallowed for offside when someone was in the back of the net, scored about 5 minutes later, as you said the limbs were amazing.

If I had to guess I'd say Hirst 92/93 Palmer 93/94 only guesses though.




Determined not to google this.


Need some fresh air.


I will leave it as Hirsty scored an equaliser in the 90's. lol

I am pretty sure it was Blunts vs Owls in the pre-season county cup. I think after my 1st year at Abbeydale grange, so about 1975, and a group of us went. Was a bit mad as we went on the kop, I was with some little blunties who convinced me it would be OK, and there was lots of scrapping.

Sat 17 Jan 1970  Derby County............ 0-1       32,991


I was only 7 and could hardly see a thing, near impossible from terraces at old Baseball Ground.


Remember very little about it apart from view I've mentioned and travelling on train.

Barnsley away, in the Jack Charlton season. I was about 12 y old. We went on a spying mission to watch Barnsley in a cup game the week before against Luton, ended 1-1

I was more amused by Luton’s Adolf Hitler look alike, Mick Harford. 

On the way home Dad asked me how he thought we’d do against the Tykes. I was an optimistic sort then, told him TC run riot and we’d score a hatful. 

We won 3-0 and the wizard scored 1 and I’m sure he laid one on a plate for Spider Mellor. Not sure who got the other. 

What a great season that was.
