The 1980-81 Season
The Fortysomethings out there will recall with extreme pain the 1980-81 season. Bill McGarry presided over a collection of individuals that could very loosely be described as a football team in the old Division Two.
Using old programmes, diary entries and meticulously documented Journal Merit Marks, the 1980-81 season is brought back to life for your delectation. Each week we recreate the atmosphere of utter despair as we look at what was happening all those years ago.
As blind optimism had us dreaming of promotion and the promised land of Division One, reality soon kicked in with the opening week of the season.
Part I - Swedish promise.
