I think 72-73 season? My first game too.
74-75 I think, the season we were Champions.
Mine was earlier as we played in white shirts blue shorts that year. I think it was 1-0 though, I was 9.
We beat Workington 1-0 in 74/75 with a goal by Eccles, playing in Amber shirts. It was 2 days before we beat Scunthorpe 7-0, and without even digging out the CHAD match report I can remember the CHAD headline which was "The lull before the storm".
We beat Workington 2-0 in 73/74, and that would have been in white shirts, as we switched to Amber the following season. Bird and Eccles scored.
We beat Workington 4-0 in 72/73. Eccles was not with us then. Duncan McKenzie scored 2 of them during a prolific loan spell.
