Back to Gigg Lane on 13 November for our second visit of 1982. From memory the 3-0 tanking was deserved. There's certainly some decent players in that Torquay team including a youngster called Steve Bould on loan from Stoke City. Last time we'd won and the weather was getting warmer; now we'd lost when it was becoming darker and colder. We slipped after that but nothing too drastic. It's a season I've half-forgotten especially as I missed the FA Cup run.
The devil is sometimes in the detail: they were still kicking off at 3.15 at Bury in those days.
Note too the fiendish half-time quiz. A difficult one in its day; even harder now.
A goal for Bury for Craig Madden. He did rather a lot of that.
Interesting references to the cup ties of 1930/31 and the use of the Torquay corporation steamroller. Is that the same one we've encountered before?
