The last 3 home games 1987, 1989 & 1998 for sure. Before that a bit of a blur. The crowds are interesting. In 1987, we were top 2 for most of the season, chasing promotion to the top flight, which we achieved & we have only 14,600 for a Saturday game, not that great. However 2 years later after our 1 season in top flight & we are back in Div 2, ok it's its a midweek game but just over 7,000. Half of what we had just 2 years before. Desperate times to only get that crowd. Sadly most of mid-late 90s 7-10,000 was the norm.

Seven homes games for me from 1970 to 1989. Carlisle game was on Southern Soccer, Kamara's goal against Notts was his first at Fratton so was Paul Cahill against Exeter.
