Buxton was a simply perfect day from start to finish. Crowd was 793 but felt like they were all behind the goal in that first half. That was magic.

Yep. Jumping up at Kuyt was pure impulse. Gerrard though. Well that was purely pre calculated spitefulness

Slightly embarrassing memories for me,i was leading the chant of "You'll get a boot wrapped round your head,boot wrapped round your head" to the tune of the gap band's "Oops upside your head" and was escorted around the ground by the local plod!

I was let off with a warning after promising not to behave badly again.

We also took a good number to Kiddie for the Worcs final pre season the season before this one.
The first of the three recent WSC Finals, at Aggborough against Worcester, stands out for me. The support that night throughout the game was superb. Difficult to be sure of numbers because there were people in the main stand as well as behind the goal, but even Worcester supporters acknowledged that we outnumbered and out-sang them.

I talked to Gary not long after that game and I know he was blown away by the support that night. It hadn't struck him what a "big deal" the game was to people (not all of us, I know, not looking at you, DtG Wink  ). And on the pitch I would say it was one of the most significant matches of the last ten years. Getting the first Trophy on the mantelpiece gave the players confidence to know that they could handle big matches. I know we'd already had the Walsall game, but we did lose that match after all, and I think the experience of the Worcester match was really important when it came to Plymouth six months later.

Neither of us had talked about doing this,I've never done it since. Quite spooky really! Anyway,we both came up with the same number. 56. Isn't it wonderful and a perfect example of what makes our club so special that we could do this and actually know by name every one of us there!
I did a "headcount" at the League Cup Final second leg at Dover in 1993. There were 77 of us that night. Average home crowds that season I would guess were around 250 ish without looking it up.

There must have been a good few of us at Hednesford in 1991, and of course THAT semi-final at Halesowen.

I recall there being loads of aggro at that Halesowen match.

Older fan's may remember a cup match at Lye in around 1977 where we won 2-0 i think,Maurice Head our centre forward got sent off and we had around 600-700 fan's in a crowd of 900+

I was 16 at the time and got jumped by 5 of their thug element down by The Noah's Ark pub ( now the Hadcroft ) and i got badly kicked around.

The only time i've actually got into a fight at football.

I thought that myself as i wrote it Neil.

I came close two seasons ago at Cirencester when two cretins from their pathetic support took exception to me telling their keeper to 'keep his f---ing nose out of it' whilst the ref was having a chat with one of our player's.

We never did see that "Buxton Wheelie Bin" that their fans kept chanting we'd be going home in Wink 

The obvious question to ask next is what's the lowest following for a Stour away game scratch

There were no problems at all at that semi.

Probably the four of us that went to Cinderford for an oft-postponed League Cup tie on a cold, foggy Thursday night (the day before New Year's Eve)

Just Nathan, Stoursi, Karen and myself in attendance IIRC (not counting club officials)

There was also a Tuesday night game in the MFA at Biddulph when six of us turned up. Mark Serrell bought us all a drink at the next home game.

Cirencester have fans?!

On a serious note, Stour fans seem to have had a remarkably high number of issues with people at Cirencester despite them having next to no support.

Let's just say Stour were drawn away at Halesowen in the 4th qualy, how many do you reckon we'd take?

Someone please stop him before he mentions "knitting"! Shocked

 I am fairly used to the knitting and getting back into the kitchen comments - its not right but I do 'get' why people would say it. What I am not used to and do not appreciate is the vice chairman (allegedly)of a club shoving his face in mine breathing his horrid smelly faggy, stale beer breath and being highly abusive! That continued for the remainder of the game! All because they were getting so irate with you men and your chants and I suggested they may be better off standing with their own fans instead of ours!!

To say I was furious was an understatment but if I am being honest, yes I did feel intimidated and got no back up from our fans - cheers lads!! Rolling Eyes 
I held it together until I rang Sean - he was furious and wanted to make an official complaint. He did some digging and if I remember correctly he had some Scouse connections - says it all!! Razz 

Have to say it was almost worth the hassle to see members of our management staring him out as some presentation was made and him looking really uncomfortable - oh and the apology I received from the club too. However I have never and will never go and give any of my money to that club again!

There all discussed for the 100th time - no need to go over it again! Sleep

That Cirencester game was bad, not least for that but also their terrible programme and subsequent match report - think of the Hungerford website report of our game there this season...that was a professional piece compared to the Cirencester one which was borderline libelous in its content. The FA should have thrown the book at them in my humble opinion but it is something you rarely see happen.

Also I've not seen Jane that annoyed since after Bishops Cleeve away in the League Cup. It wasn't on to be spoken to like that, albeit I 'did a Wenger' and didn't actually hear it going on.

The funniest thing about that night at Cirencester was Barca Nick and Mark Crockett getting into the ground for free by walking through the middle of a dance class in the function room next to the bar!

Was that the night we won 2-1 there at the start of the 2011-12 season i think,Rowey scored as i remember.

Only about 120 odd there and i'm on my own in those days and being daft enough to be getting involved with two of their idiot fan's.

I'm afaid Nathan that isn't strictly true. Because Nick trumped that.

He'd been to the bar and once he came back to the rest of the following announced "I thought someone over there was me, but I realised it couldn't have been me, because I'm here".

I'm not even joking. It still makes me laugh to this day. Razz
