Great stuff, gullone.
I have the Brixham game down as Brixham Trawler Fishermen's XI.
A planned PSF at home to Plymouth Argyle on 21 August was called off. A private practice game against Kingsteignton (again!) was played instead.
Just reading back on a few posts, I wonder IF the Plymouth game had a programmes made but of course not issued due to the postponement. Probably will never know but an interesting question.
Just some final recap things that if any members read and may have the answer tooto fill my knowledge/collection gaps:
21/08/84 A v Kingsteignton (Score?) 19/05/85 A v Saltash Plym Exe Tq Combined Bradford Fire Fund (Score?)
PSF's etc programmes needed please:
04/08/84 A v Dorchester 18/08/84 H v Bristol City 23/04/85 A v Brixham TF XI
Additional: I know Jon's records are for first team friendlies but would be interested if there is any knowledge of any Reserve or Youth games that may have programmes? Though this info isnt essential for my collection.
Equally so I know gullone thinks there were no postponements that season so will add that to the generic postponed thread soon. Though if anyone has any other info, greatfully recieved.
Taken from a HE cutting, United are playing Brixham Rovers a team based on the Brixham and Torbay Fish Co-operative Wall Park 6 30pm. A crowd of more than 400 attended the game and the money raised will go to the installation of two seats on the Brixham fish key in memory of Mark Tyler and Mark Lane the young fishermen who were lost at sea recently. I think this may have been my first ever trip into Brixham and found it bloody hard to locate Wall Park. Its a rare occasion when we send a team into Brixham so im glad i did this one. I remember John Sims getting a run out and i kid you not a 30 yard screamer into the top corner from Micky Perry. Entertaining stuff on a spring evening refereed by Mr Alan merse And a nice little 4 page homespun admmision programme that is now as rare as rocking horse ....
