Hi everyone

I'm Steve, mid 40s, my first Rovers games were in the mid 1970s - 2 matches over a bank holiday weekend. Both home wins - 4-1 vs York City and 1-0 vs Carlise United, although my memory isn't the best.

I remember all the old 3rd/2nd division days with fondness - fighting off promotion every season...Garner was God! Brotherston Sadly missed...

I fondly (!) remember 2 seasons in a row losing 3-0 at Shrewsbury, or how about two trips to Portsmouth (Two draws), or two Batterings at Charlton (The Valley and Selhust Park).

Obviously I've lived through the Promotion season, the first season up, ruffling a few feathers (David Seamen clapping the Blackburn End after we had beaten Arsenal 1-0) and of course the Championship Season. What a pity we couldn't build on it.

I live in Northampton now - I get to as many games as I can - home or away.

Well, that's me - PM me all you want, I love to talk about all things Rovers!
