This day a great FAC win & thoughts of wembley


Well-known member
The day we beat Barnsley 2-1 at Ayresome Park, after taking a 2 goal lead with goals from Mark Proctor & Bosco Jankovic the ground was bouncing, this is going to be our year
John Neal was putting together a young, exciting team who will grace wembley stadium & on our home ground no one would fancy their chances

Barnsley then pulled a goal back & it was one way traffic after that with the away contingent in full voice & baying for thr equaliser, how it never happened, though Jim Platt had a lot to say about that with his performance in goal

Infront of 37,557 we deged over the line & in to FAC QF's (y)

John Neal's team

Jim Platt
Irving Nattrass
Ian Bailey
Craig Johnston
Billy Ashcroft

I remember that team with great affection: a blend of youth and experience which we thought would bring us a trophy. And only £1-50 to stand in the chicken run.
