Hang on guys, of course I believe Chorley won.

Just typical of the appalling drift in BBC standards that they failed to get any scores from the FA Cup until hours after final whistles and they got that one wrong.

At least we are not waiting for the first round draw whenever it is made...

You in the 1st round proper then?

I see a couple of ex-Rovers Urwin and O'Keefe play for you. Any good?

edit: and Blakeman too?

These 3 are probably sofar the 3 players that have been the stand out players sofar..Urwin as unbelievably only concerned 4 goals in 13 league matches?.blakeman as scored 9 goals from left wing back. Plenty of rovers hats and scarfs at Chorley looked like afew did what we did

So are you in the hat for the 1st Round of the FA Cup? Is that the draw you referred to above?

Chorley beat wolves in the fa cup one year at burnden. Think played Preston at ewood in the next round. 

Dec 1986. That game produced Ewood’s biggest gate that season (1986-87) 15,000. Rovers had only 2 league crowds of over 10,000 Stoke at home (just over 10,000) and 13,000 v Derby who brought a large following on their way to the Div2 title on Good Friday (and were soundly thrashed)  

There were 12,000 on the Full Members semi final v Ipswich a few days before the Stoke game in March  

Interestingly the opening day of the season saw only 8,346 present for Rovers v Leeds and a couple of weeks later when Sunderland were the visitors and Rovers beat them 6-1 just 7,115 turned up. Not such huge away support for those clubs then. In fact not such huge home support for Leeds either - less than 15,000 when we drew 0-0  at Elland Rd that season. (although that was 6,000 up on the Elland Rd gate a year earlier v Rovers).  And there were only 11,000 at Roker v Rovers in Dec1986! The same month as the PNE v Chorley game

The biggest crowd we played in front of away in 1986/7 was 15,000 at Derby. It really wasn’t a boom season for the Championship with no Man City or Newcastle 

Must admit I have fond memories of the Leeds away game the 0-0 with Bobby Mimns making his debut for us. Not so much for our performance but in those pre-mobile phone days I distinctly recall going up the slip road to the M62 as James Alexander Gordon intoned “Division Four. Burnley 0 Hereford United 6” to raucous cheers in our car and the sight of several lads in a car in front banging the roof in delight

I was reading the programme for that Chorley game only the other day. Sam Allardyce is down as No 6 for PNE.

Re the Hereford win. Was that the day a massive 12 hundred or so turned up to watch?

1500 for that one but a couple lower later that season I think.
