Club history - 1972


Recommended Posts

I am trying to find out the date and result of the Orient vs Latics away match in the 1972/73 season - and any other info from that match (eg players, goalscorers etc). I've done numerous internet searches but not got anywhere yet.

 

Can anyone help? :)

We didnt play Orient that season they were in Div 2 and we of course in Div 3.

 

That's why I can't find it! And the same goes for the next season. But we did play them away in 1974-75. I think it was October or November. So - same request - anyone know any details of that match?

 

Thanks exile. :wink:

Brilliant! That's the one. And what a season that was. We failed to win any away matches all season, but we stayed up anyway.

 

Thanks.

Wasnt it always NIL-NIL when we played Orient at home?

Always remember them being the most boring game of the season,big side every time they came,put 10 men on the line.

Sounds strange now I know,they also stood out for having more than 2 Black players in the side which was very rare at the time.

Our lowest attendances were four games of around 9,500 +/-

 

Hard to believe but we actually lost money that season as the Club had budgeted for an ave Att of 15,000.

That game was my very first appearance at BP as a 2 and a bit year old sat on my Dad's shoulders. We went in when they open the gates for the last 15 minutes or so. Don't remember much about it like.......................................

And the away match at Orient earlier in the season was my very first Latics match too! Don't remember much about it either. But I'm still here!
