Probably,Margate v Palace FA Cup 1958,went on the train with older so called mate,who ran off as soon as we got there,and left me to quickly learn what it was all about.Worst match 2-0 defeat at Preston when Moyes was in charge,most of us in old wooden stand,booed off Ruddock and co at half time

Since I was born because everyone else in my Family supported them - my first game was in the late 60's.

1953,age 7,with my Dad, think it was against Bishop Auckland in the FA CUP and we lost 4-3.
Best game when we beat Burnley to get promotion 54,000 or so at Selhurst.
Worst game 9-0 defeat at Anfield when we even managed to miss a penalty.

60 years now.
Highs: Real Madrid and getting Johnny Byrne back for a night.
Semi final v Liverpool
Burnley record crowd
Villa in the cup lost 4 - 3 but what a game.
Lows: Every time we got relegated
Every time we sold a favourite player

I am 76 and recall my great grandfather taking me to Selhurst in 1947, I cannot remember the game I was more interested in the peanuts that he bought me that I chundered a little while later.
it may not have been that game but at some stage, "Chopper" Len Choules became my hero.

Choules didn't come on the scene till the early fifties. And I don't recall him being known as "Chopper". But a few years later Tony Collins and Bert Howe both took on that nickname. I'll never forget Choules, on account of one of the most spectacular own goals I've seen. I believe he was a good forty yards from the Whitehorse goal, but he passed back, and to everyone's horror the ball took off and sailed over the goalie (?Vic Rouse). That made it 2-0 to Carlisle. The other reason for remembering this is that in those days there was a raffle for the match ball, which a schoolboy syndicate to which I belonged won on that day. For a long time afterwards the Len Choules ball was kicked about in Brockwell Park.

By the way, Sir James, I am the same age as you, but didn't start till 1954 - so a novice compared with you!
