First memories 1965/66 ish, playing around the back of the old tin shed. Hay bales? The sound of the ball bouncing off the roof, and racing to be the first to get the ball when it came over and get it back to the pitch.

The old scoreboard, and the entrance below it, up a lane to the turnstyle. Is that still there?

Cups of Bovril and changing places at half time. Being able to walk all around the pitch

Games against the Welsh and the Police.

More recently the games as mentioned before - Leicester against 14 men, Wasps in the cup, Exe in Div ! and the Glaws game and THAT drop goal.

Oh and Flipper scoring a try, leaping over the barrier, sitting down with the crowd and applauding himself - can't remember which game that was

Happy Days!!
