I have often thought that if the current Man City and Chelsea squads walked past me in the street I would hardly recognise any of them, but if Huddersfield's left back from 1971 walked past me I would say "that's Geoff Hutt!" Steve Smith with him at Halifax too.
The Halifax centre-half had played for Manchester United and would go on to play cricket for England.
We've recently discussed silly numbering. Lindsay Parsons was far from being an attacking left winger! A very solid defensive left back, he scored a grand total of zero goals in 415 league appearances for Bristol Rovers and Torquay.
All of Timbo's programmes offer interest. Some, of course, more than others. This 1979 edition lies at the routine end of the scale.
Timbo tells us the game scheduled for January was postponed. This would have been around the time we were endeavouring to play Newcastle United in the FA Cup. You can bet that, if there was snow, the Shay would have been hit badly.
Plenty to peruse on the Soccerswap page. You wonder what became of 27-year-old Jaromir Kaspar from Czechoslovakia. I guess it's possible he later took advantage of the fall of the Iron Curtain and moved to Sowerby Bridge to engage in his passion for all things Halifax Town.
It is interesting when you look at the 'Meet our visitors' page and see how Donal Murphy had scored 10 goals from 33 games in midfield for Coventry. That would have been in the first division. It perhaps demonstrates how the gap was a bit narrower then, than now, because even as a Football League club, there is no way a player who had played 33 Premiership games and scored 10 goals, would drop down to League 2 to play for Torquay.
