20 years ago

Postby gazza1988 » Thu May 20, 2021 8:35 am

20 years ago we had not long finished the season in the bottom half. The season before was an even lower finish. However, the season about to start is the 01/02 season which saw a mix of homegrown and experienced players go on to get 3rd place.

Could history be about to repeat itself?

Hamegrown talents such as Liam Lawrence, Bobby Hassell, Lee Williamson, Craig Disley coming through the youth ranks. We've got Tyrese Sinclair, Jason Law, Caine, Knowles all knocking on the door.

Another similarity is we had a young lad called Jamie Clarke and this season we have a young lad named James Clarke. It is close enough :lol:

And 30 years ago in the season about to start, 91-92, we were about to be promoted fired by Stantie's 26 goals and Paul Holland pulling the strings from midfield.

Also promoted in the 12-13 season from the conference.

We only get promoted if there's a '2' in the season title.

Fingers crossed for next season and season after.

And in season 11/12 we finished third in the table.

I found that in each season we got promoted the year had a December in it.

Spooky.

Also the same for seasons we were relegated in.
