Which was your first game supporting Gloucester?
#11

My first ever game was a 2-1 win over Whitley bay of which the keeper scored from the kick out of his hands,the first and only time I've ever witnessed that live.
Ironically I went to the game as the club invited my local football team Windsor Drive do there is a strong possibility Mansell was there aswell as we were in the same team untill U11.

I’d love to know what my first game was. I never really remember not going, as judging by my first programmes my Dad starting taking me with him to Horton Rd when i was about 5yo in the late 70’s.
Just recall kicking a ball around behind the goal, and idolising Mike Burford and bizarrely Mirek Kalweski! (sic)

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

Stevenage 1st game of the season drew 1-1 1974.
Dismal crowd as usual then, I sat on the grass bank at Horton Road.

Can't remember who we played but it was at the old  longlevens  ground and it was just over 60 years ago .
My brother was 10 years older  then me and decided that he would take me ( reluctantly )and he would go on his bike. and i had to go on my bike from the white city  to longlevens.  He met up with his mates there  and I didn't  want to lose sight of him because it was a big crowd for a small kid  ?and I didn't know how I would find my way home ,it being my first time at a game and so far from home.
Can remember the crowd , colours and sounds and even the very very very long bike ride there and back ,I surposed i was hooked,but didn't go again untill the club moved to Horton Road?Even at a young ageI liked to ride my bike ,but I didn't want  to do the pre de ark la Gloss to watch a game of footie ,plus my mum wouldn't let me go a again on my own after my brother refused to take me again .
He said I was too slow on the bike and he had to keep stopping.

Currently watching the Darlington Twitter feed....first time I saw Gloucester City was in '77 (I think) against Kidderminster Harriers at Horton Road. I must have been 15 at the time. I do remember it being bleak and foggy, the crumbling concrete terrace - and the tea bar. I think City lost too. I'm afraid myself and friends were not too impressed - we had already been to see what were old First Division matches with huge crowds, so didn't return until years later (other than a match in '95 against Real Oviedo) when encouraged to do so about 11 years ago by a friend and getting fed up with the cost of Premier League. Not looked back since, far more connection supporting your home town club than any PL outfit .

Tigerroar is also my friend.
20th March 1993
1-1 vs Waterlooville

I was 8 years old and had only seen football on the TV so imagine my surprise when Meadow Park wasn’t a 25,000 all seater stadium!

No, we also have season tickets this time and go the men's games when we can.
