Long time ago, but the Graham Williams winning thunderbolt against Huddersfield (then in the top flight) 3rd round of the FA Cup 1968 Shock 2-1 win for us....Attendance 20,000 + Great atmosphere. Got my ticket from Noel Kellys in Bromborough...great sports shop and nice bloke. More recently the Koumas goal at Goodison.
HIggy. What a great choice. I was there for that game. Frank Worthington scored for Huddersfield and Ken Beamish, I think, scored the first one for Rovers. The Graham Williams thunderbolt was in the last few minutes. I was standing directly behind him in the Cowshed when he hit it. I remember it now, the ball arcing into the top corner of the net! A great memory.
Thanks Drwhoman. Yep great time to score and a good scalp at the time, initiating a nice cup run culminating in the game a Goodison. Don't know why, but had to go and watch a Cheshire League game with my dad to qualify for a ticket.
I recall Yardley was injured drwhoman. I didn't know it was Casey who replaced him up front though. No nonsense is right! - he did like a tackle. He was the first footballer to be sent off on his debut...……….first few minutes I believe.
it was 67/8. Yardley was injured at Shrewsbury as RLC says and did not play again that season. We had beaten then 1st Div Coventry after a replay in the 4th round. BBTC was there? I saw the game away but missed the home replay due to school exams. We lost 2-0 at Everton with mad dog Casey and a young Ken Beamish up front. I think a young Joe Royal played for Everton. Gate was 62k! No all seater then!
