Gutted Cheltenham out, come on Exeter
Shame for Colchester as it is a reasonably easy ground to attend and I sincerely hope that the Cobblers make sure that we won't have that awful three hour journey down to Exeter.
A game against our nearest rivals is a mouth watering prospect.
Just in case your dreams don’t come true, and mine do. Was that pub we went in for the Micky Mouse trophy 🏆 a designated away pub or is it usually for home fans only? Good pub.

I think we should congratulate Northampton for coming through the playoffs

This is surely a good thing for posh

Am i mistaken or did we have over 20000 when we drew 3 al at home l in our first ever league season?

Losing 3 nil at half time i think?

Gutted, plus now they've come up we may be unable to sign that young lad, he'll probably have his sights much higher.

yEP, I ,'wus there, 1st year in the Football League played 8th October 1960 in front of 22,959 fans. Losing after 25 minutes 3-0, but Mc.Namee twice and the very best of them all Dennis Emery with one goal dragged us back into the game. What a Season. :clap2:

I hadn’t realised until yesterday when I received my monthly update, that our forward line for most of that season, 7 Billy Hails, 8 Denis Emery, 9 Terry Bly, 10 Ray Smith, and 11 Peter McNamee: all five are in the clubs top ten scorers of all time.

I was there as well. I didn't think the crowd was quite that big (my old file says 22,959?) but Brian would know.
As bristle says that was a magnificent forward line - feared by all of the other clubs in the league. The rest of our team were pretty good too!!

What monthly update bristle?
Sounds interesting. Can I get one?

You of course are correct Tonyp, I HIT THE WRONG BUTTON, it was 22,959 and it was a hell of a forward line.
