First game there for me was 1973 and my brother's first wedding day. Missed first half got in at half time and Ray Hiron scored the winner in the 46th minute! Thanks for waiting Ray.

Three others I think and who will ever forget the Ferdinand OG in 2007?

Four for me. Starting with the win at Aldershot in 1980 in Div 4, one of my early away games & ending with another great win over Manure in th e prem in 2007. What a contrast!
