At least the last 2 home games, can't be sure about 1983. The draw with Norwich sticks out. Desperate to stay up in our first season in the top flight. A must win game against a side also struggling. We concede a very penalty to draw. We went down & they stayed up! Happy St. George's Day to anyone proud to be English!!!

Quite a few games leading to promotion and relegation.

1962 clinched promotion after the 'fixed game with Peterborough on the Saturday

1983 a convincing win that left us on the cusp of Division Three title again!!

1988 our last point before relegation.

Right back in 1949 Pompep clich league title. A great day St George's Day.

And all except Harry Harris and Jimmy Campbell of the goalscorers were English including three Internationals!!

Sorry just checked and Jimmy Campbell was born in St Pancras.
