City beat Newcastle 2-1 in the League Cup at the Bank.
Was anyone else on the forum there that night ? I was in the South Park stand with my Dad.
Just been looking at my original programme, it brings back great memories.

Great night, remember walking to the ground from the Gillies with a large crowd of very vocal youths. Escorted to Lindum Hill by P.C Barthorpe on his bike! As I recall we passed the old Grand Hotel where the players were sat having their pre match tea.

Me too along with the other 15,453 in the St Andrews stand. No need for tickets in those days, just turned up and took your chance. Still have the programme along with those for the Torquay and Derby games in the League Cup run. All started with the win at Mansfield. Some good players in those sides, Holmes, Peden, Grummett, Harford and John Kennedy. Ron Gray as Manager. Happy days ! UTI.

Just to avoid doubt, not all 15,453 were in the St Andrews stand, they really packed em in then !! UTI.

.. I was at the Mansfield game all those years ago and remember having to leave about 10 mins early to get to the bus as the Mansfield 'boys' were getting a little upset after being 2-0 up and then losing 3-2 to the mighty Imps. Then onwards to the 2nd round home game with Newcastle and another great night followed by the 3rd round against Torquay and of course then came along Derby - couldn't get to the Baseball Ground but was at the replay along with 23000 others on a rain soaked night - watch out Kevin Hector here comes Mickey Brown :)

A brilliant night. My best friend at school's family supported Newcastle - they all went to the match and beforehand the banter had been about the thrashing we would get! The Thursday morning at school next day was the best feeling I had ever had- I was on cloud nine for weeks- she remained my best friend!

Yes I was with a friend standing on the open SB terrace. I remember the cheer every time Ray Harford beat Wyn Davies in the air - it was like scoring. And even the old men who used to moan from start to finish every game were joining in the chants for "we want three". We had a pint in the West Bar at the Grand before getting the bus home (from St Marys street in those days)

At that time you never for one minute thought that one day you'd be those old men!

I was also in the South Park End, but on the wall by the corner flag adjacent to the West Bank. I recall that they scored first through Ollie Burton latish on but Jim Grummett scrambled in the equaliser at the South Park End with (I think) about ten minutes to go followed by a George Peden penalty about five minutes later. The roar of the crowd could be heard down Rookery Lane apparently!

Wyn Davies, the famous Welsh striker, played the whole 90 minutes for Newcastle.

May I add that that game was up until that point the best I had seen in the my four years of watching the Imps especially as we always seemed to be in the doldrums and applying for re-election around that time.

. Very true! And at least I've had some good times to enjoy whereas it had been downhill for them for years

. Same here, and it still rates as one of the great nights at SB for me

Interesting memories, thanks guys. I was a mere babe in arms and wouldn't see an Imps game until the mid-70s.
