Cobblers, Brissel Rovers and the R - just the three. 1949 the day our hopes of winning the double were dashed by second division strugglers Leicester who were led by a then unknown Don Revie!!

The last 2 home games in 1988 & 1994, very much in my youth. As Dave said & well before my time. the chance to become the the first team to win the double after the war, blown by a lowly Div 2 side Leicester. We have a habit of losing to them when it really matters.
