Doncaster Rovers and made the long journey (stopping off in
weekend had a sort of adverse medical theme. The idea was that me and the
Missus would travel to
the ground were friendly and chatty. The ground is an interesting
combination of the old and the new. The home fans in front of the one old
stand would have wished they had been in a new section when it poured down
during the match. Cue the predictable chant from us lot. We mustered 418
on the day. Not a bad effort given the distance travelled. The match was
going wrong for us before it had started. Our star loan signing Centre
Half having injured himself in training leaving us reduced to 1 centre
Half, and he being the youngest and smallest on offer at that. Predictably
the Argyle launched bombs into our box, for Fallon to head, all afternoon.
We generally coped well but it was bound to work for them once and once
was too much, especially when we were down to 10 men after 50 minutes when
they should have been down to 10 men after 10 minutes when their centre
half, as the last man, tried to mount Billy Sharpe. Our right back was
crocked in the 35 minute and , well you get the idea. They ran out winners
2-1. The atmosphere was, well a bit damp in keeping with the very damp
We all thoroughly enjoyed the day, notwithstanding the result, and even the twins remarked that they were glad they had gone to the match. Iíd love to find the energy and determination from somewhere to do it again.
