All, one for the amateur sleuths and anoraks amongst you...

I'm trying to precisely date this game (Obvs. '83 / '84 season) I've got a hunch re. our opposition on the day - for what it's worth, I don't think it's Liverpool or Forest.

Any help gratefully received!

Cheers, Steve

Sponsor looks like McEwans - Blackburn?

Nah, they were sponsored by Pioneer.

I'm pretty sure that is the Liverpool game in May 84.

I think it's 84-85 and it's Carlisle. They had blue with white pinstripes and McEwan as sponsor that year.

Sponsors not right though. Liverpool were sponsored by Crown Paints in 83/84.

Is it Luton, but washed out colours? Carlisle is a good shout btw.

Actually, yeah.

Carlisle is a good shout, I went along with the OP saying 83/84 - but it could have been the following season.

The sponsor is right and being a umbro kit is right this was the home kit from that time

And the programme saying we're playing Grimsby shows it's Div 2.

All, thanks so much for the replies, it's much appreciated!!

You've confirmed my own hunch (honestly) that it was Carlisle Utd on 15th Sept. 1984 as they were sponsored by McEwan younger.

The reason why I had to know is that I'm the blonde kid on the Kop behind Hoppy....

My life is now sadly complete.

Cheers!
