That was in the league, of course. Did win at Anfield and Mansfield in the Cup, and another win at Hillsborough in the semi final.

I just looked up Wadsley Bridge station on Wikipedia. I never knew there was a line near to Hillsbrough.

Opened 14 July 1845.

Closed to regular passenger services 15 June 1959.

Last used by football specials 1996.

My old grandad bought me a Sheff Wed shirt in 1966, blue with white sleeves and lace-up neck. He got it from Len Newton's shop. It was the only blue shirt available.

Always amazed Mickey how slow the the big clubs were in jumping on to the band wagon as far as selling club shirts scarfs etc ,can remember trying to buy a Leicester shirt before the 69 final and the best I could do was a striped Huddersfield type shirt from Sports .

Bang on Greg. The blue with white neck/cuffs which covered a plethora of clubs were simply not available. I got my grandma to knit me one in the end.

Daggers re the railway line. At the time of the 1969 semi final the far (Kop) end at Hillsborough was open, and I am sure that during that game you could see trains going past. There was also one of the earliest electronic screens, and I remember that it told us that Highland Wedding had won the Grand National. Happy days.

remember it from '71, there was ructions up and down the road to the station. The station was above the bridge anfd high up so you might have seen trains. The station had wooden platforms as l remember and i've still got my ticket for the special. 1-3 Leicester by the way.
