discussing the next big promotion game in four days’ time, but we had lost – dream over. But we were amazed to hear the United fans reliving the goal Brian Greenhalgh had scored in the fifth minute, before we'd got in the ground. How could we have missed it? It was a 1-1 draw and the promotion dream was still on.
On the Saturday we beat Mansfield 3-2 and won promotion in front of a gate of 11,542. It was the same team for both games: Vasper, Thompson, Akers, Eades, Guild, Rathbone, Walton, Watson, Ross, Greenhalgh, Lill. Sadly, United couldn’t get the hang of Third Division football and were relegated after one season. And we moved back to Cambridge after staying in Toddington for just two years.
