When did the Pink disappear in Swindon?

Last edition of the Pink was 18 November 1978, there was nothing in it about it being the last edition so i guess it came as a shock to the staff when it suddenly stopped.

I bet they weren't tickled pink about it.

And I thought being shit at penalties was a relatively (last 20 years) new thing. 5 in a row and from McHale, beater of the Pikies... Is there a team with a worse penalty record??

Talking about penalties got me thinking who has scored the most in a STFC shirt🤔 I'll take a punt on David Moss

Keep guessing, Jimmy. He's joint 8th in the list.

I'm intrigued now but without checking I can't remember if John Trollope took penalties😀

The Pink was great used to have it posted to me as it was the Oxford Green Un in our area. Used to que at the newsagents at 6'o' clock when it arrived on the bus from Oxford. Nowadays it would have all reports and results but in those days a lot of results and reports were just till half time!
As for penalties has to be the great Don only remember missing one in his career.

Was it Peter Noble? I remember reading once when he had dementia he would always remember back to his excellent record with penalties (although a lot of those would be with Burnley i guess)

Good guess - 4th on the list. Even Reg might not have got it.  A real 'oldie' tops the list.

Had Jimmy specified "League, FA Cup and League Cup games only", Family at War would have been right, but he didn't.  Doh
