It's turned nostalgic actually seeing some enthusiasm emanating from the club. Not like these days.

That was Wadsworth actually ecstatic in the interview and how good a player was Reeves back then?

What a fantastic night that was-I was there with Mullen’s ‘father in law’.What a team-what a strip.Leaders all over the pitch.

Never to be seen again!

God, the mind confuses things as you get older. I thought Stockport was the first time we qualified for Wembley, anyway, two great days.
Remember Rochdale game looking like we might get knocked out at one stage and being desolete and coppers being right [censored]. Mountfield was magnificent that day for a man with no knees.
Stockport was a better day though. One of the lads knicked the micrphone off the Radio Cumbria reporter on the pitch, and we came out of a Stockport pub after the game with a fast developing mob looking to lynch us. Our young one was with us, so had to go back in and call the cops to clear them.
Happy postive days.

Bridges was my all time favourite, although Reeves is a close 2nd. I remember Reeves and Smart (on loan) as the best partnership I had seen too.....only for Knighton to sell Reeves to PNE with Smart signing permanently. I was gutted then as I was when Bridges and Harte were sold.

A few years later the Allan Smart&Nick Wright patrnership was quality so Watford bought them both!

I would class both Smart and Wright as better footballers than Reeves,but reeves made the most of his ability with unbelievable fitness.

I'd agree with you on that.
