Westwood (and McNeil to some extend) does not get the credit her deserves for the consistently excellent corners that he delivers. Every single one produces panic!

Wonder what the Lincoln fans thought of Stanley on Saturday. The game was played in absolutely dreadful conditions (amazing it was even on given Stanley's pitch).

Away at York, Boxing day 84 got beat 4 nil. It was my first away game so that's probably why I remember it well. Also remember getting hammered 4 nil at Chester, think Rimmer scored a hat trick. The away defeats seem more imprinted on the memory. I only started watching us in 1983 so them dark days ...
