  1. The floodlights shown in the photograph are the ones in question. They were later replaced and first played under in a friendly v Liverpool. (circa 1970) South were winning until Shankly arrived late at the ground to a chorus of "Shankly Shankly what's the score ?" He unleashed Alun Evans ,who promptly scored 4 ! Happy days spent watching there. My heart was ripped out when they folded.
  2. The best of the lot was John Aldridge.
  3. Yes...That's when Jimmy Case was good !!
  4. The club was fire bombed out of existence...some say insurance fraud ,I wouldn't know. The ground was built on and is now the Park Way travel hub. All is not lost though. They are now an amateur club playing at Otterspool (North field).
  5. No it's from the away game at the old defunct Holly Park ground in Garston Liverpool.
  6. Here is an image for fans of a certain age from 1964. A great action shot ! I used to follow South in my youth but now the Shaymen. Was anybody at this game ?
  7. The video sound track would be good on a match day. Does anyone recognise it ?
  8. Dennis was my boss at Nestle (Mackintosh's, Halifax) .A Great bloke .I was so sorry to hear of his passing. RIP.
  9. 2 adult (and took up the offer of 4 under 12s for the grandkids)
  10. My grandson went. I await his reaction when I see him again next week but he was very excited to be going. Well done Town.
  11. What a desperately sad situation for you and fellow supporters of Nuneaton.
  12. Hesperus

  13. In reply to Monk.... They said people on the day would be issued with a ticket, all tickets have seat numbers so Yes.
  14. We got our tickets this morning...Block C .Quite happy with where we are placed in theory. Can't wait to chat to the charming usherette who will escort us to our seats. If the weather stays fine I might even ask for a choc ice. I am seriously looking forward to this match. Win ,lose or draw.......To see a full stadium will bring a tear to my eye. IO Shaymen !
