Nostalgic day

Post by old git » 27 Apr 2021, 11:20

30 years ago today was a momentous day in the clubs history with the return to Wembley and the first FA Vase win against Fleetwood 3-1. If I could have a trip in a time machine that is the day I would choose

Interesting. I think my day would be the Warrington replay at Telford. Such a cut and thrust game with 9 goals and two well matched teams. Not Wembley I knoe but a brilliant game.

My day would be the 6-0 win over Kings Lynn in the early 89's in the FA cup in the days of Stuart Edmonds and Les Prosser, closely followed by
John Rhodes's late equaliser against Irthlingborough Diamonds at the Grove, once again in the Cup

Agree that was a fantastic game, but I wouldn’t want to relive that one at my age...heart wouldn’t be able to take it nowadays ;D

That was indeed a high in the club history..if my memory serves they were top of the now National League that day, and we were 4 ? Divisions lower in the West Midlands League...just like today’s Kings Lynn crowd they took it In good grace 8)

I would choose winning the Worcestershire Senior Cup in the 2nd leg at Kidderminster in 1962. The first time I saw The Town win a trophy and it would refresh my near non-existent memory of it.
Alan Parsons’ bullet header will never be forgotten.
Aggborough pitch encircled by a cycling track would be there to see again too.
For a Worcestershire man, that competition was always special.

Jeez Chas, how do you remember a goal from 1962? I can barely recall one by the time I get home!

It’s nothing compared to Malcolm Hazelwood’s capability of remembering nearly every game he’s played in.
