I remember in my first year at Uni (97/98 sort of time), I'd bigged up MTFC and talked a load of new uni mates into going to watch us at Cambridge. It was terrible, not just the match or the result (think we lost 7-2) but the weather. We literally had ever type of weather possible in the 90 minutes. Safe to say, they never wanted to watch Mansfield again and I fully deserved the ridicule of being a lower league football fan.

I went to the original match at Tow Law, Sandy, which was abandoned at half time. It was like a scene from The Terror. Frozen balls? You betcha!


Yes so did I Wilfred. I think we would have won if they had played the second half as we would have been playing with the blizzard :D :D

I remember.. but funny enough (correct me if I’m wrong )didn’t we play them at Field mill the season after and beat them 4-1 and go onto a brilliant run in the FA Cup.

I lived on Stella Street at the time so we were walking down Quarry Lane, I'll never forget it as we were right behind what, at the time, seemed like thousands of Matlock fans. Of all the games I saw in the 70's as a kid, that one I remember the most just for the sheer shock. Matlock, it must be said, were fantastic that day.

I think Matlock had 3 brothers from The local area playing for them , Fenaughty or something similar, The team were all local and only one step up from a pub team , a group of mates having a kick about but they really played the Stags off the park that night.

We must have had a bad team then that year to lose to Matlock conceeding five???. I bet our 2009 team would have beat our 1977 shower and thrashed that Matlock team 1 nil. Good job social media wasn't around in 1977 as it would have been total meltdown.

Yes you are correct. I think at least one of the Fenaughty brothers played for Sheffield Utd.

4 0 defeat away at Chesterfield. Can't quite remember the year but it was my first game against them after being a full time stag for a few seasons Absolutely gutting.

One of the most depressing days ever. I was pre-exercise leave from the Army at the time and was due for a night out in Chesterfield that night so was looking forward to rubbing it in.

Needless to say, my night didn’t go as planned! :(

I was glad to go on exercise for the following month so I didn’t have to suffer the ridicule for giving it the big un in the build up :lol:

Matlock Town were a decent non-league side and a lot better than a pub team. They had won the FA Trophy in 1975 beating Scarborough 4-0 in the final. They were managed by Peter Swan, the former Sheffield Wednesday and England player, who was could have been part of the England 1966 World Cup squad but who was jailed with Tony Kay and David Layne in a betting scandal. Brian Phillips and Sammy Chapman were involved in the same scandal.

I think Tom Fenoughty had taken over as player manager of Matlock Town when they played the Stags. I'll have to dig out my old programme. Tom Fenoughty had played for Sheffield United and Chesterfield and according to wikipedia stopped playing professional football in 1972 to become a pharmaceutical chemist after graduating from Manchester University. His two brothers, Mick and Nick Fenoughty, also played for Matlock and had also been at Chesterfield. They all played in the FA Trophy Final in 1975

Matlock finished 3rd in the Northern Premier League in 1976-1977 behind Boston United and Northwich. This was when the Northern Premier League was the equivalent of the National League Step 1 along with the Southern League and Isthmian League. Wigan Athletic won the Northern Premier League in 1974-1975 and we only beat Wigan after a replay in the FA Cup that year with one of the best sides we ever had. Dougie O'Connor scored twice. He only scored 4 goals in total for the Stags. We bumped into him again in the FA Cup a few years ago as he was working for Shaw Lane. Wigan finished runners up in the NPL to Boston United in 1977-1978 and were elected to the Football League to replace Workington Town.

Wigan Athletic replaced Southport. Workington were voted out the previous season, replaced by the old Wimbledon club.
