Season Stats 2011-2012

0,,10361~9042199,00

Groundhops

66 games and 33 new grounds that's 8 less than last season The 92 was completed on Feb 11th 2012 at Swansea

Memorable moments include:- 

  • Ashington as they beat Guisley in the Fa cup who were 3 Divisions above them
  • Brighton's First game in the New Amex V Tottenham Hotspur
  • Dunston UTS V Blackwell Miners Welfare when they won 12-1
  • Preston V Carlisle Boxing day 3-3 as a Carlisle Fan I waited a long time to see Carlisle Play Preston at Deepdale and the Atmosphere in the away end where 4000 Carlisle fans were was fantastic
  • Completing the 92 at Swansea was a fantastic achievement and to see a great game of football (3-2 to Norwich) made it even better. The atmosphere was brilliant and to top that the bloke who’s mum lives 8 doors from me smashed home 2 goals (fellow Cumbrian and Harraby lad Grant Holt)
  • Seeing Blyth Spartans come for 3-0 down to draw 3-3
  • Being part of the Celebrations as AFC Fylde and Bedworth town won Promotion more so Bedworth as the game was far better
  • Being down on the Pitch at Brunton Park to meet Jim Davidson as his Charlton won Promotion to the Championship (only wish my phone hadn’t died otherwise i would have had photo)

Unmemorable moments include:-

  • Hibs as the game was called off at 2pm luckily I was able to get to Livingston just in time for KO
  • My first visit to the B2net Stadium ended in a 4-1 defeat for my team Carlisle Utd Just the same as my first visit to Saltergate had ended in a 3-0 defeat
  • Leaving Ewood Park when Blackburn were winning 2-0 in the LC against Newcastle. Newcastle had Subsequently scored twice by the time id walked up the hill to the van
  • Carlisle were drawn against Alferton in the Fa Cup and I had already bought tickets for the England V Spain game on the same day meaning I missed out on another new ground

 

For next Season

I plan to visit the remaining 18 Scottish teams as well as Rotherham’s new ground.

As well as that I plan to do the remaining 11 Blue Square Premier grounds I need 1 of which will be Barrow on the 21st July as Carlisle United Visit. For those of you interested I pass Holker Street every morning on my way into and out of Barrow delivering Mail for TNT and still ain’t been. There is 12 Left in the Blue Square North as things stand. I may not get these done all in the 2012-13 season but will give it a go much of this will depend on work and family issues

Hearts V Royal Antwerp 21st July 2011 (14)
