This of course has got me looking at next years potential ‘virgin’ trips. Some promising ones include Bradford (who I watched in the late 1970’s when I lived in Yorkshire), Nottingham, Chester and maybe Lincoln once again. The grounds at Rochdale and Darlo sound worth experiencing. And we have some interesting local derbies (Barnet and Butcher’s Brentford) – shame Orient look to have escaped a visit from our merry throng.
Some not so promising ones may be the long trips to Bury, Grimsby (has anyone ever been there?), Accrington and Rotherham especially if these are on a cold Tuesday night in mid winter!
Sadly they won’t include Bristol who are likely to be playing at Swindon or Cheltenham, if they are not promoted. Although there’s a very outside chance we could end up at Cheltenham twice.
Exciting times. I’m looking forward to adding some more ‘new’ grounds to my roster.
As for Blackpool, well, it’s pretty grim on a chill, misty spring day I can tell you. Good job they are in another division then!
