I asked people to donate their funny experiences / favourite matches. Here is our first. It comes from Dave in NZ one of our forum members.
When about 12yo I was standing at the tilton rd end with two mates on the front row. During the warm up Welsh international striker Trevor Ford hit the ball full power. It glanced of the post and smack into my ” kisser ” !! Ford ran over and asked if I was OK. My face was numb and stinging but I told him I’d be alright. I had trouble keeping my eyes open. When I finally managed to open them properly I said to my mate ” i see we’ve kicked off ” He replied that we were winning 3-1 and only 5 minutes to go !!
