Unsure about 1980, did a few that season, bit of a blur, but there for Barnsley in 1986, a bad draw for us, one of those games that cost us promotion! There in 1995, just over 7,000 to see us lose to WBA. Yes Dave, not there but one of the great days, vivid memories of the match as I screamed the street down as we arguably won the cup there. Happy birthday Kit, a great player for us.
