v Watford W 2 - 0. Sept 1968. Age 14. Used to catch train from Bletchley to watch all home matches and local derbies at Luton & Watford.

About 1950’ish very young and remember being very bored! Remember that I didn’t get hooked until I was 13yrs. School took its toll but can remember vividly the Arsenal game at Highbury game where we lost 3-2 J English scored both goals and ran the mighty Gunners close. Was able to listen to part of the game on the radio. From then on they were my talisman along with novels by GA Henty! Whilst living in London used to watch the games in the capital, Brentford, Orient, Charlton, QPR, Chelsea, Fulham, Millwall and Spurs! Our strength in those days was our defence, then a playmaker in midfield. It was Bowen who managed to sign some very good forwards, Bobby Brown, Hunt, Broadfoot, Robson, Lines, Reid, the bouncing Smith from ‘Boro, Hails also from ‘Boro, Livesey, Leek, Kane, Martin, and above all Cliff Holton. Nearly forgot Frank Large who put the Brighton keeper and ball BoN at the Goldstone ground packed too! Loved it!
There were others too! Compared with now the strikers of yesteryear put current crop to shame although I suspect Rose, Ete and Hoskins might have fitted in!
