I can't copy the link for some reason but if you go to the link in The Baron's thread from a bit lower down there's a brilliant piece to re-live the whole day again!

91 years of hurt?! Leave it out,there`s been some great games and memories that most of us can recall even if they have been infrequent. The Cup run in `58,Lancashire Cup Final in `65,the Floodlit Cup in `72,the great team Frank Myler put together in the 60s are foremost in my noggin. That night early in the season (late 60s/early 70s) at the Athletic Ground in the wind and rain when we knocked over the mighty Saints 14-12,or something similar,was a fantastic night,so there have been lots to savour amongst the dross. When the Aussies toured and they had those parades from town up Milnrow Road to the ground were really memorable. I`d love to know how many famous Aussies and Kiwis have played against the red,white and blue over the years,those Kiwi Hakas and Aboriginal dances that the Aussies did before kicking off,can anybody remember them? Oh yeah,the only time I ever got lost was when I ran up the hill to watch a train go past,then couldn`t find my way back to the old man!! They had to get a copper to walk me around the perimeter so dad could see me and pick me up. Great memories.

Think you are in Oz, DD so this would not realy apply to you, but any of you other interested fans should go and have a pint in the Tanners arms at the bottom of Whitworth Road. Norman Halsall the landlord has quite a lot of old memorabilia photographs adorning the walls and one or two other interesting bits. Call in and have a browse, bet you like it.

DD. I can remember the cup run in 58. I was 9 at the time but had to miss the semi-final because of a family wedding. I can also remember matches against the tourists with the Hakas and seem to remember we came close to a win in the early 60's. Another early happy memory  was an 18-8 win at Wigan when I was at primary school as my teacher was a Wigan supporter. I was at the Lancs cup final against Warrington but missed the Floodlit Trophy as I was away at Uni. We reached the John Player Trophy final in the 73-74 season but lost to Warrington. On the way we beat Leeds 5-3 with a Bill Holliday drop goal from half way. The Myler era was to my mind a great time to be a Hornets fan.

 

Yes there have been some great games and very happy memories but credit must go to this squad as they have actually achieved something that I never thought I would see. Hornets going up to collect a cup (Law Cup excepted). A big thanks to all concerned for a a fantastic day out and a memory to cherish.

I remember that drop goal from the half way line. It was on a very heavy pitch if I am correct. Ah those were good days .
