My earliest memory, is being lifted over the turnstiles, by the old man, as a little un sometime in the 50's. Shrivenham Road terrace, you'd then get down the front to peer over the fence.  I don't recall anything of the football...

Hang on in there, Audrey.

49 years for me.
If only I had known that most of the best bits would be in the first few years, I could have saved myself much angst :doh:

Maybe a Diamond for me. My dad took me to a testimonial game in the late fifties in which Stanley Matthews played. A few other league games around that time too, always on the Stratton Bank boards. That was when I found out my dad swore a bit, but not as strongly as some do now...

32 years for me, was all far too easy in the first 7 years, gone downhill a lot since then and more of a chore now

On a different tack, i’ve Just watched ‘When English Football Ruled Europe’ on ITV. Brilliant, so many memories of my misspent youth.
