Video of Luton game, plus Freight Rover heroes

Postby Bradders » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:46 am

Only a few snippets and a bit shaky too as I was mostly watching the match. But both goals included and footage of George Foster & Co at half time. The sound is deliberately low because of the "language"!

Great footage - thanks Bradders!
It's lovely to see them again and the nostalgia that was recreated. Good to see George Foster given the hero's reception that he deserves.
There were a few players that I couldn't put a name to - Can anyone produce a photo with the names attached?

Thanks for the link Martin. It is strange to see how time has changed some of them beyond recognition. Hitchcock, Kearney, Cassells, Chamberlain & Graham have aged well - and some of them have filled out a bit! :)
Seriously though - a lovely, nostalgic trip down memory lane. Hope we do more of it in the future.

Was talking with Sandy Pate last week and we remarked that it will be 50 years in October since he made his debut for the Stags and he was saying that he thought it would be good if something could be organised to mark the occasion.

I remember the game well, it was an away Friday night defeat at Stockport. Travelling back on the supporters coach with all the windows smashed was a bit cool.

Some things DO change for the better. Coaches have air conditioning nowadays.
