    • Hi Derek, I started going down the lane in 57/58 season. Used to go with my eldest brother, carrying an orange crate. Stood behind the Paxton road goal area. On really busy games I used to get passed over the top of the crowd and we were allowed to sit against the wall. So I too had the joys of the double winning side.
      I moved out of London in 1971, haven't made many visits since the early 80's. Last time was the Roma friendly pre-season. That game promised so much!!!
      Where abouts in Lincolnshire are you. I live in the Boston area myself.
