Another programme from a match against this Saturdays opponents. This time the Rotherham team included a name well known to us,Neil Warnock. This match came a week after our embarrassing FA Cup defeat against Tamworth which was mentioned in the first ever issue of The Sun,a copy was included in Mondays paper. I have also attached a copy of the article.
Result: 0-0 Attendance: 5941.
The first ever Page 3 Girl!! To cheer us up after the defeat.
I was going to start listing the errors in the Luscombe extract - but I'd be here all night.
I dug up this programme for another look at old Bill's history of the club. And I'm sure Jon could carefully list all the errors.
I've said before that, even as a teenager, I was rather wary of this particular version of history. I guess that was partly due to descriptions such as Alfred Palmer being "one of the fastest wingers of his time" and Roland J Weston as "one of the finest referees in the country". Really? Dear old Bill, bless him, but you learn not to take much of it at all seriously.
As for the end of the 1960s, who is this Warnock fellow playing for Rotherham? Signed from Chesterfield apparently.
A New Year's do at Pontins Barton Hall. Melon, soup, chicken with all the trimmings and vegetables, sweet, cheese and biscuits and coffee. £1 2/6d: tickets from George Stuckey. Did anyone on here go?
