I went with my West Ham fan uncle to the county ground for my first game. I feel like we won 1-0 but its one of my very earliest memories that I still have access to so I could be wrong

Swindon 0-0 Norwich - pre season friendly 1995/96 season i think. Night game.

I was 7. Remember Bryan Gunn being in goal for them and being scared thinking he actually had a gun. Could barely see the game as there was a big bloke in front of me.

Peter Thorne got man of the match. Saw him leaving the stadium after the game and called his name out. He turned round and smiled at me.

Love for this cluster fuck of a club was born.

Didn't start going regularly until the 03/04 play off season when I could go with mates as my dad's a Man City fan!

I may be wrong but didn't we have a pre-season game v Norwich cancelled because of a waterlogged pitch not sure if it was that fixture or another one.

DOB...Think that was the year Town beat Sunderland 3 0 when the goal posts broke.
Pleased that Flynn has been given the chance to get us going again. Let's hope.

Thanks, I was feeling quite old with the list of 1990s and 2000s games Smiley as was 1974/75 as an 8 year old!

Possibly late 70's for me. God knows who against. I know Jimmy Allen as playing.

Myself and my Dad sat in the seats above the Shrivy.

This was my first game too, and I sat in the Town End with two other people who were at their first game! Neither of them still follow STFC, otherwise I would have assumed you were one of them!
