Went into the Programme Shop at Walsall to get a match programme, and they'd put loads of old Walsall Bees progs up on display. Seeing the iconic Chris Kamara programme cover I splashed out a whole 25 English pence and stepped back in time to 'that' season. Bees of a certain age will know what I mean.

Anyhoo, any Statto able to tell me the score?

Flicking through, highlights included comment on the trouble and attendance at the previous game V Pompey, well documented already on here and a certain 'Alan Bird' sponsoring Paul Walkers kit.

A lot more than 8,000 down :D

For some reason I remember this game well, even though it was an end of season non event and a complete anti climax after the Pompey game. We lost more comprehensively than the scoreline suggests, pulling a goal back deep in injury time.:shrug:
