Love that photo. First away game I ever did with my dad. We paid in at that main stand at the bottom, walked across what was then an open terrace at the right hand end and sat in that little shed of a stand at the top of the pic.

Main memory is Hugh Curran smacking one in at that right hand end  in a 3-1 win. Even found a pic of the programme from the game

After a bit, a group of Hull turned up and their leader was a massive shaven headed bruiser of a guy. Upon being asked for the fee his answer was "fuck off".

So the police marched his mates along in front of the Hull fans to try to identify the culprits. I thought "they'll fucking pick me even though I didn't do it and am not a Hull fan". Fortunately, they didn't...
