I'm an old Cherries fan (1960-1970) and am currently going through some of my old programs.
I thought the first floodlit game at Dean Court was 3-0 but have since seen the score as 3-2.
I know it was on the 27th September 1961 against Northampton. Can anyone help?
I also have a Man U program, 9th March 1957. This was a week after Bournemouth had lost 2-1 in the cup.
The program Cover has Tommy Godwin going down for the penalty, while the inside has Matt Busby given
credit to the Bournemouth team.
Appreciate any feedback,
Nick from Mobile , Alabama.
Hi I'm Neil near Norwich.
Just watched the Tottenham '57 video in a hotel room in Corfu.
Was the Spurs goal offside ?
We'll never know. No slowmo video replays then. In the Echo after the MU game was a photo of a muddy mark on the shoulder of a shirt to try and prove it wasn't a hand ball penalty.
