Can remember my mum queuing up past Southern Brothers to get me and my dad a ticket for the Manny Road South.Had to send her as I was still at Primary School
We set off from Kearsley and caught a 12 o'clock bus.
Through Farnworth I could see that almost every pub was packed with Geordies.
Got on the ground really early and managed to get a vantage point on the camera scaffold that had been put up at the top of the player's tunnel,the best 'seat' in the house.
Managed to get a few autographs, Paul Jones, Alan Gowling and Geoff McNulty spring to mind.
The goal from MacDonald was special but for me the atmosphere and the fact that I' d never seen so many people before was something I'll never forget.
