I have a vague recollection of my dad taking me to Home Park, home of Plymouth Argyle, to see Blues play during a summer in the early 1970’s. We were on holiday somewhere nearby and think it must have been a pre season friendly. The only thing I recall clearly is standing behind the goal and loads of Blues fans running into that area from a stand on the touchline. Just curious if anyone else on here went and can confirm when it was and if it was pre season? Cheers.

Summer 76 perhaps?

We drew 1-1 in an Anglo-Scottish Cup match I think. Wasn't there myself personally...

Maybe, thought it was a bit earlier tbh. It was definitely played in the daytime as well, were Anglo Scottish Cup night games?

We played Carlisle in August 71 not Argyle around that time. About the same length of journey though?

No, they were afternoon games. The one’s i went to anyway.😉

Nah, was definitely Plymouth, sure about that. Parents never went to Carlisle for hols! I thought it was a pre season game but could have been that Anglo Scottish Cup game in 1976 as just looked and that was played during summer.

I don’t think Plymouth got past the next round did they?
The year we lost to Watford, they played Plymouth in the semi!

At the 4 sheds if I remember.

That Watford game was a low point.

Yes, that must be the one. No wonder I couldn’t remember any goals, a 0-0 draw! Thanks for the reference 👍
