Northampton 1980 - nice to see Steve Davey back at Fratton today too!

Happy to say I was there too in 1980, my first ever promotion as a Pompey fan & not my last either. Home in 1986 as the game turned out meaningless as e had missed out on automatic promotion. 1998 and that frantic last day win under Alan Ball as we survived & sent Man City down to third tier of English football.
