Conference South Title - 10 years ago

Postby Blackandamber » March 13th, 2020, 11:57 am

Now that there are no games to look forward to, how about looking back 10 years this weekend when we clinched the Conference South title, with 2 goals from Sam Foley. Would you believe that Sam is now playing centre back for St Mirren.

I've always believed that qualifying for the Conference South in the first place, was a pivotal moment in our Club's history. Many of the teams who failed to do so at the time, have still yet to progress any further at all.
Going on to win it so convincingly was amazing!

A good watch that, not seen it before. Commentators sounded like they were stuck in the 1960s. Cracking cross for the first goal, about 6 County players inside the opponents' 6 yard box for the second goal. How we could do with stuff like that nowadays. Couple of 'industrial challenges' from Havant which would attract straight reds in 2020.

Will always believe that this season was my favourite ever county season. Such a stunning performance all season (FA cup apart).

Good Morning!

A great trip down memory lane! That was my first visit to Spytty Park. I drove down on my own, and back after making it quite a late return.
Made me chuckle hearing the reaction to Tim’s celebratory statement from those around him.

Can’t believe it was ten years ago!
