Recommended Posts

Man U around 1964 lost 1-0 I think David Herd scored, sorry to be so vague but it was a long time ago.

Remember mine like yesterday! 
 

Doncaster at the old bell vue. Remember getting there and thinking.. is this what all other grounds look like! Made me think how lucky we are by having Hillsborough! The match it’s self was great! 4-0 win. Kenywn Jones hatrick On his debut. Couldn’t stop talking about it all the way home, how good the atmosphere was and how many fans we had taken. Loved it. Actually miss that little old ground.

Mine was also Man Utd away 1964.

We did lose 1 0 and David Herd scored it and they had this young skinny kid on wing who wasn’t bad

Sunderland at Roker Park around ‘74 , lost 1-0 I think.

Went to quite a few away games before I saw my first away win - 1-0 at Reading. Jeff Johnson scored and Concorde flew over (not because we had won).

I think it was maclean that got the hatrick. Your right about kenwyne jones scoring on debut though. Was a ridiculously early kick off for a Sunday if I remember rightly.

Wembley 93 v the pigs. Off to a flier with that one

 

Then after that was v Man Utd away in the league cup semi in 94

 

First proper away league game was v Everton on Boxing Day 94, Guy Whittingham bagged a brace on debut in a (I think) 4-2 win

Think it was Preston in 72/73 season , drew 1-1 , remember we scored a penalty and played in orange shirts if my memory hasn't failed me, was only 8 at the time.

Around the time we went 36 games between away wins!!

Mine was against Forest. We lost of course. 3-2 but I think we brought it back from 3-0. Can’t remember when exactly, probably late 80’s.

8. Sat  2 Oct  Lincoln City............ 1-1    13     14,706   Rodger Wylde

 

Thanks to Bradowl for the link to the stats. 2 October 1976 was my first away game. I was nine years old and went with my Dad, Grandad and Uncle. Absolutely unbelievable experience travelling to Lincoln in the car on the A57 along with thousands and thousands of other Wednesdayites. Seem to remember being on a big uncovered side terrace. The game passed me by as I soaked in the atmosphere while coming to terms with my first experience of my closest relatives using industrial language in front of me.

Lincoln City 27th December 1959.

Won 1 - 0 (Roy Shiner IIRC)

 

Remember being disappointed because we had beaten them  

7 - 0 the previous day (boxing day) and I fully expected a similar score again.:wacko:

Mine was Blackburn, Nov 1990. We lost 1-0. Went on the club coach with my brother. Saw some much better performances that season, but hooked on away games from then on :)
