View from the Away End

I had an odd experience tonight! Watching Wales from the Eric Roberts Stand made me realise that the last time I'd watched a game from there was the match when it was opened! It was back in the early 1980s and we beat West Ham in a classic: 4-3 with John Lyons scoring a hat-trick, as I recall!

The stand was virtually sold out when my Dad and I went for tickets, so we had to get seats right up in the corner, but I remember seeing us pull the Hammers apart little knowing that I'd be sitting by my Dad again, with my lad in the terrace in front of me with his Borras Park team-mates, over thirty years later when I next parked my backside in there!
