WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST MATCH AT STAGS AND THE SCORE?

My first match was Scunthorpe in the League Cup in the early 80's with my dad and think Stags won 2-1 but I started out on my own in 85 and couldn't picked a better time to start watching em. Won the first game of the season 4-0 v Hereford!

Sometime in 99/00, Leyton Orient in a 1-1 draw, Peacock scoring for us.

The next game I remember going to was Shrewsbury on a night time game, we won 4-0 and Field Mill looked so beautiful under the lights, that got me hooked.

First away game was Leicester in the FA Cup, the one where we lost 2-1. Greenacre scored and Dearden went to the bed wetters.

Wimbledon 1988 FA Cup i think. I remember taping the preview from Grandstand (would like to see it again if anybody has it?). Was deffo at Mill for Northampton in the first match of 88-89 season tho (drew 1-1) . The same season we played Sheff United 4 times due to getting them in the FA cup & subsequent replay, and also Wolves brought loads - but Fulham didn't ;)

26 February 1983

Chester City at Field Mill, won 2-1 with goals from John Matthews and Bobby Hutchinson in front of just 1805. Sat with my Dad in the Bishop Street on green painted benches.

Apparently, it was Stags' 2000th league game and Ian Greaves' first home game in charge. I just remember being thrilled to be at FM, buying two programmes off the seller at the front (much to Dad's dismay) and seeing the legend of Rodney Arnold in goal. :D

Meow! I was a season ticket holder for quite a few seasons after and also went to a lot of away games. I make the odd game now. Thanks for asking though.

What about you?! I guess you go to all the games?!

Friendly, Stags 1-0 Derby - 1974? It was the year Stags won D4 and Derby won D1, remember they both paraded their league trophies.

Can't remember who scored, must've been Terry Eccles or maybe Ray Clark

I've been going to stags since the early 90's with my dad. Started going halfway through the 91/92 season, I was 3 1/2 years old when I started so exact game, date and score I can't remember.

On my own (well free with the football in the community) was against Barnet, we won 2-0 with Iyseden and Clarke scoring with Izzy getting sent off with about 10 to go. 97/98 season.

1st home game v Wigan Ath Dec 1974 Stags won 3-1 FA Cup replay.

1st away game v Sheff United or Sunderland old Div 2, not sure which came first lost 2-0 & 1-0 respectively. I think it was about 10 years before I saw Stags win away.

1st home game: 3rd March 1979 1-1 with Blackpool

1st away game: I think Lincoln away 1-1 on 27th Dec 1980, the Match of the Day cameras were there I also think. I got Russ Allens autograph that day, and ended up going out with his daughter many years later.

Saturday 28th April 1990. Stags 2 Crewe 1. The only thing I remember is sitting in the Bishop Street (Family) Stand opposite the tunnel in the old West Stand and seeing the guy sent off, chased down the tunnel by our guy who was also sent off. He jumped on his back and lamped him. I was hooked!
