Default Re: Now entering my 20th Season...

38 and counting. My best moments came the other week when we played Eastlliegh - my youngest daughter got to our seats( she's 10 and has been about 5 times ) and said " god dad it's packed " and proceeded to get involved with almost every song/chant etc. The smile on my face - I honestly didn't really notice we lost....ok I did but the most important thing was I remember the grief we went through in the hard times and the effort and lengths that people went too. In those moments it all seemed worth it. We nearly got wiped from the map. Being able to see pleasure in those that weren't even born at the time...absolutely priceless.

Around 60 from me. Seen some highs and lows at home and abroad.
Still a relative youngster compared to some who still post on here.
Feel sorry for the youngsters who have only seen us down in the conference but hopefully their time to celebrate won't be far off.

54 years since I stood in the Tech End with my dad for my first game.
He then took me to Wxm then bin dippers for alternate games but there was only 1 winner for a young welsh lad. At 12 years old a group of us got the train each game and at 14 we were having a beer in the Caernarvon Castle each game.

Lots of away travel memories over the years some of them as mad as you can get.
West Ham in 81 I think travelling there on the motorbike. Cardiff and the game got postponed and we were snowed in overnight. Forest NY Day and postponed until next day because of fog so a night on the piss. Now were reduced to Boreham Wood and 600 fans if were lucky.

-Almost go out of business before being taken over by the Fans

I think its easier if you`ve only known the Conference !!! some of us remember the 70s and long for those days again .

Does anyone remember that scruffy Chester fan used to come on the pitch at half time and do acrobatics !!!! he was bloody hopeless

Over 50 years for me too. My early teens in the 70’s spent in the Tech End were the happiest times - packed like sardines, great banter - and being, literally, swept off your feet when we scored!

1961 for me - we were 4 up against Darlington after 20 minutes and went on to win 5 nil. Hooked.
