Coventry 3 (Alderson 2, MacKenzie og) Blades 0

A miserable 1st half as we were easily beaten. I was sat with my dad and Malcolm Sylvester in the main stand. During the 2nd half I had lost patience in watching the match and Malcolm was telling me to get a grip and not "give up". I remember looking at the Green Un headlines that evening "Alderson's
magic stuns the Blades" and it pissed me off even more!

Never mind the Utd defeat, what about the Amateur Cup report of Hallam losing 2-1 at Leeds Carnegie to a controversial late goal? Dodgy officials favouring Leeds again…

Blades 1 (Dearden) Wolves 2 (Richards, Hibbitt)

I struggle to remember anything about this match and I dont remember watching the tv highlights of the match in the next day. Dearden's goal can be viewed from 33 mins 47 seconds in below link.

Who was TC sticking two fingers up at, after he scored the equaliser at Derby (29:00)? Could it have been Clough by any chance? You can see it as the players are congratulating him after scoring. Definitely giving someone the rods.

I am on the left side of the lorry wearing my keeper jersey probably waving to my grandmother and my Uncle Ronnie (both lived on Stonelow Road) on Oakhill Road. My dad and SUFC Commercial Manager Harold Rumsey made the arrangements for a Blades themed lorry float filled with young Blades around my age to parade through the roads of Dronfield before ending up at Cliffe Park . I had forgotten that there were ads about the forthcoming Watney Cup tournament until I saw the photo a few years ago.

At Cliffe Park there was a Blades stall selling scarves, badges, souvenirs and pennants etc. My dad and two or three other parents helped out Harold Rumsey behind the stall.

Mike and Bernie Winters were at the park entertaining the crowd.

Our match at Selhurst Park was postponed by referee Jack Taylor due to a waterlogged pitch despite that both Palace and Blades players were already in their kit in the changing room also a few thousand spectators had already paid to get into the ground.

Neither my dad or I made the trip to London probably because we didnt fancy the long trip.
