Remember it well. My brother and I were pictured in the paper after match inadvertently stood over the 'End' section of the Endsleigh League advertising. pic.twitter.com/1l69aLaPTk— Dan (@GingerOgre) April 30, 2020
So many. A favourite is Carlisle that season in Autoglass, crowd surged on the Terrace when Starbuck scored and sent me and my Dad flying, I didn't actually find him again until the final whistle had blown.— Matt Smith (@maff_smithy) April 30, 2020
Walking to each end of the terrace depending on which way town were shooting. In the Cowshed when it was packed and in full song. Happy memories. Utt— Wayne Gallagher (@thesource65) April 30, 2020
Beating Arsenal 2-1 in their double winning season was pretty special, as was the 4-2 defeat of West Ham in the 1972 FA, not least because it was so long since we had scored a goal!— Quelpanama (@Quelpanama) April 30, 2020

Waiting for the away team’s bus to arrive with my dad... standing in the queue for pies and catching a glimpse of the pitch... wonderful memories.— G Scott (@the_pennine_way) April 30, 2020
First game was with my grandad and we changed ends at half time 😬 he bought us a Marathon each and we left before the end to beat the rush.. happy days— Mat Newton (@matnewts) April 30, 2020
