In Topic: First game you attended?

Yesterday, 07:32 PM

You know, there are some absolutely smashing stories in this topic … it would make a really good book if they were expanded, and personal pictures added etc …
 
Also, what is interesting to me is how many people are introduced to RL by their fathers/relatives. Just shows the importance of family … and I guess RL can be seen as one big family.
 
I might add that it was NOT a father or relative who introduced me to RL. My father died when I was VERY young, and my dear mum had little interest in sport, so I remained fairly oblivious to what was going on around me re footy until, at the age of 10, I changed primary schools to one where there were quite a few young RL fantatics - most of whom had been introduced to RL by their dads ! Been hooked ever since!


Not my family, all of whom come from Berkshire or Hampshire...my dad took me to see ReadingFC when I was four. My introduction to RL came via Grandstand in the 1970s. Used to watch matches, Challenge Cup I guess, Saturday afternoons (when my dad wasn't dragging me to footie) on our black n white TV.

Easiest way is by tube from Liverpool Street. Greater Anglia line to Enfield Town.
 
Takes about 35 mins, costs about £6.50.....

Being a southerner (Berkshire born and bred) had to wait until I went to university in Bradford in 1981, Bradford Northern v Hull

Well Hemel aside didn't do too well with my predictions. Very good performance by York and a 1000 plus crowd, although Oldham had a few players out,
