Keith had played at a high level earlier in his career but was no big time Charlie. He worked his socks off for us over four seasons and was instrumental in our promotion in 1986 and then Frieght Rover win in 1987.
I still think my favourite Stags goal was one of Keith's scored against Wolves. He curled it into the top right hand corner of North Stand goal from left of area. We all went barmy. Wolves won the league and their side included England international Steve Bull. We won 3-1. Keith scored two that day.

Keith Cassells would definitely be one of my first pics for 'the hall of fame'.

T'was at t'end of Miners Strike though bud, much uncertainty over t'industry. Also many folk were on holiday in the middle two weeks of August. After that we remained above 3k all season barring Rochdale in the Nov of 85.

It's interesting looking at those fixtures of some of the away attendances.

It was nowt to do with the strike as the season kicked off 6 months after the strike ended and as we know, the vast majority of Notts miners didn't lose a penny and were secure in the knowledge that Maggie was going to take care of them ;)

The shocking gates in the 80s were reflective of the wider malaise in the game. Crumbling stadiums and rampant hooliganism was driving punter away in droves. The years in the run up to Hilsborough were the low water mark for football in England.

Since the gentrification and sanitisation of football started in the 90s, the game may have lost a lot of its soul but we shouldn't forget also that there was just as much about the game in the 80s that was utterly toxic.

Micky Boulding scored some crackers.
Opening league game away at Brentford, the season we went down, was a special strike.

If I remember correctly (bearing in mind it is over 30 years ago) I think the Rochdale attendance was low due to thick fog and many not braving the conditions for fear of postponement. The match eventually went ahead and Mansfield took the points.. Although not many can claimed to have seen the goals

This takes some beating -

Dave Caldwell in the 1980/81 season FA Cup:

It was in the next round of the FA Cup that Caldwell scored a memorable goal in a 3-1 win at non-league Mossley. He ran half the length of the field, leaving a couple of defenders for dead, then eeled his way along the bye-line and beat the goalkeeper with a left-foot blast into the top corner of the net. In an exclusive interview with FTYBR in 1992, Caldwell described this goal as the best of his Stags career. He said `I beat the whole team, hit it with my left foot and it went in the top corner. It was unusual to score with my left foot`.
'I've decided to pick my moment to retire very carefully - in about 200 years time'.

I remember the game well and Paul Taylor and I were chatting about it only last week. The Stags won 3-2. The worst fog I've ever seen a game completed in

Thanks for the suggestions... keep them coming.

This week and on to THAT day at Wembley. The greatest day ever as a fan? Not sure in being in the old Div 2 was better but still a magic, magic day.

Some great articles Tim bringing back some very fond memories and I am sure reminding us all why we support our club - it's those very few moments of sheer joy that make it all worthwhile. Whilst I did go to all the home games in Div 2 in 76/77 I was only 8 so my memories aren't as clear as Wembley. That day at Wembley remains the greatest day I have had as a Stags fan - I was close to tears when George lifted the trophy, it was such a big deal for the club and town that had been through so much. The parade was also very special, though it was a pity about the trouble at the Cockle, I had to beat a hasty retreat when it all kicked off, me being a lover not a fighter :lol:

It is easy to forget that in the mid eighties it was almost unheard of for a lower league club to play at Wembley, a stadium normally reserved for international and league and FA cup finals. In those days I never imagined we would ever play there at all let alone beat the holders of the trophy in the final. It is a day I will never ever forget. Wonderful memories of the day and homecoming celebrations on the following day that incidentally was a Bank Holiday.

That photo is quite amusing - look at the short shorts! the ugly floodlight pylons and the shape of the Halifax player in the background! :lol: The game has moved on quite a bit since the 80's.
