Tomorrow will be only our 3rd game ever on 29th February - the other 2 being away to Blackburn in 1992 (1-1, Durnin), and the 2-1 FA Cup 6th Round defeat v Preston in 1964 which of course was our biggest ever home attendance.
Not a lot of people know that.


A few more do now. Me for instance.

I'llve seen 2 of the 3 then ( come 5pm tomorrow).... Im still bitter about that '64 Preston cup defeat, damn referee didnt seem to grasp the relatively new (back then) offside rule :cautious:.... Nowt new about referees being a bit crap, its similar 56 years on :rolleyes:

BTW, Single chaps, who wish to remain single, try n avoid single women for the duration of 29th feb - ( I will be, just in case ;) )

My Grandad long lamented that offside goal by PNE.

If I can cling on for another 28 years I'll make every effort to match your record Sarge!

Edit: Just seen it might only need to be 12...fingers crossed...
