Drinking with the home fans at Dudley and Moor Green ( I could nearly walk to their old ground ) stand out.

Great pubs and village at Histon.

Racing Club Warwick - just because it's a great name.

... then the edgier games at Bromsgrove and Worcester. The Lamb ( Tamworth ) was always well attended and a good atmosphere.

Far too many to mention.


I remember a steward at Histon telling one of our young fans with an air horn to stop making so much noise! :lol: :lol: :lol: how tinpot was that! Also being excluded from the bar there for some reason . Mostly I agree that apart from the edgy ones mentioned, non-league was much more friendly and good to have a drink with oppo fans, miss that camaraderie tbh.

A friend of mine's son was with their junior team when that game was played. The reason for the ban was not that a large number of County fans were drunk and disorderly.

More drunk and incapable. I remember the half time announcement. The bar will be shut over the interval and will remain shut until after the Newport County supporters coach has left.

I think for Cambridgeshire sensibilities, 'You're my best mate ever you are, I really love you, me and you against the world, eh? Spoken with a slurred Newport accent, was perhaps a tad too full on. :drunken:
