I remember the game there in Jan 1977.  Went 1-0 up early doors, think it was Roger Wylde who scored and then we proceeded to get hammered 5-1.  The coach I was on then had most of the windows smashed  before leaving the town, making for a rather cold journey back to Sheffield.  Happy days!  

Wasn't that a replay of an earlier fixture that was abandoned due to a cloudburst?

Those wanting Harrogate away need not worry. We'll be playing them in the league in a couple of years. 

Not if they pass us on the way we won't! lol

I wanted Harrogate away because it'd be a new ground, but then I remembered that there'd be no fans allowed in which would be annoying, but fortunately I then also remembered that they'll be playing their opening games at Doncaster anyway so I didn't care.

Back in the day remember some Walsall fans pinned in the corner of the Kop near the triangle and some Wednesdayites pointing at them and singing “We hate cockneys, we hate cockneys”.

That corner was the official away end  in the 70s  must have been  difficult getting them in the ground without anything kicking off

I was there that day.

i remember Chris Turner being in the net.

luckily a good session in the boozer before the match (a copper pointed out the best pub to go to) eased the pain.

Our coach was fine.

Have a vague memory as a kid of going to Walsall in the late 70,s ad a kid and game abandoned at half time due to rain? Couldnt undetstand how a game stopped for rain, was this 1977 then?

For about 10 years after that there was a song regularly sung at away matches. 

“We went to Walsall, we got wet, wo ho, wo ho”. 

“We went to Walsall, we got wet, wo ho, wo ho”. 

“We went to Walsall, we got wet, the referee was a f***in get”

”Wo ho , wo ho, wo ho”.

Remember that well. Wasn't there also a massive crush on the terrace caused by police with dogs?

It won’t. They’re groundsharing with Doncaster, unless you count a decent day out as a trip back in time to 1950.

 

Was going to post the same.

Last time at Walsall away... comfortably winning 1-0 and then they scored 2 90+ minute goals including a HUGE deflection.

 

Glad those days are behind us. 🤦‍♂️
