Saturday 20th November 1943

Football League South

Southampton 2 (Whittingham 2) Crystal Palace 2 (Robson, Smith)

Gate: c 7,000





Palace finished 5th in this 30-match league season, while their hosts ended in 13th place and their goalscorer & skipper A Whittingham scored 19 goals in 28 games.

Palace scorer Albert Robson was one of those guys who played so much war-time football you have to wonder what he did for the war effort. It might have been plenty but he would have had to fit it in around 189 war-time games for Palace, and grabbing 116 goals. Making his debut in Dec 1936, he played 88 peace-time games either side of WW2, ending with his last in March 1948, and scoring 23 goals in those matches. So in all his 139 goals would make him the club's second-highest goalscorer ever, if only we counted war-time games. Here he is in 1938/9.

20/11/79 Friendly
Rushden Town v Luton Town
A big day for the hosts as they officially turned on their floodlights for the first time.
Rushden Town would merge twelve years later with Irthlingborough Diamonds to form Rushden & Diamonds FC.

Wolves 1 Derby 3 (Nicholas 2 (1 pen), Bivens)

att: 6,000

Early start on a Sunday morning down by the docks for this rather obscure friendly.

Kingsbridge Athletic v Sir John Barleycorn

Is that ground still on the go or has it been built over?

Saturday 21st November 1953

FA Cup 1st round

Great Yarmouth Town 1 Crystal Palace 0

Gate: 8,944





The second of three consecutive losses in the FA Cup by Palace to non-league opposition. GYT were top of the Eastern Counties League (which also hosted the A sides of Arsenal, Spurs, West Ham & Norwich) so were no mugs, but even so a loss to Amateurs is always humiliating. And Palace ended up 22nd of 24 in Div IIIS so in fact weren't an awful lot higher in the big scheme of things. Below is action from the game, showing that beautiful old stand which still stands in their home Wellesley Rec ground. Worth a visit, I would suggest. They are currently in the ECL Div 1 North.

Shot shows a Palace attack. Apparently the home keeper (Canning), fumbling here under not a lot of pressure, was MOM, but who cares? GYT won and were rewarded with a 2nd round trip to Barrow (who won 5-2). The 8,944 gate was, and I believe still is, the ground record.

21 November 1931

Football League First Division

Middlesbrough v Portsmouth

A very long journey north for Portsmouth was rewarded with a 1 - 0 win. At the end of the season Portsmouth finished 12th in the League and Boro finished in 18th place.

21/11/59 Division One
WBA 2 Man City 0
A good season for the Baggies who finished in 4th position, but City only survived relegation by three points after scrambling clear with four wins in their last six matches.

67 years ago.

The original owner must have liked to keep his records handy (though the club records have the attendance as 19,541).

This defeat was the end for manager Stuart McMillan who had led the club to their FA Cup success in 1946. He was replaced by Jack Barker but he couldn't stop the club sliding into Division 3 by 1955.



On the same day, the reserves beat Sheffield Wednesday 5-2.

Following Pete’s example earlier of an FA Cup tie with a giant killing:

21 November 1953

Walthamstow Avenue v Gillingham

A one nil win gave Walthamstow a second round tie v Ipswich

Saturday 22nd November 1969

Division I

Crystal Palace 2 (Dawkins 2), Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 (Sewell og)

Gate:- 23,585






Trevor Dawkins, scorer of both goals, including one brilliant bender from a free kick that completely bamboozled Phil Parkes. Dawkins was ex-West Ham, a skilful but lightweight midfielder who in his whole career managed just 35 games and this match yielded 2/3 of his career goals. But here he gave Palace 2 vital points and one of only 6 wins in the whole season as they just stayed up in their 1st division debut.

Action from the game as Bertie Lutton, the Wolves #9, just misses a low cross as John McCormick looks anxiously across the 6 yard box. Most of the 23,585 were pretty anxious, to be honest, including the 13 year old who's responsible for those team changes. This was a rare win and for the only time in his very brief career, Dawkins was the talk of the town and playgrounds in South London for a good few days thereafter. I scuffed a perfectly good pair of shoes trying that free kick with a tennis ball.

22 November 1947

Division 3 North

New Brighton v Rotherham United

Rotherham went away with the points after a 2 - 1 win.



Also in Division 3 North:

Halifax Town v Gateshead

This match ended 0 - 0




On the same day:

Division 3 North

Accrington Stanley v Chester City

The score was 1 - 0 to Accrington



It was a trip to the seaside for Carlisle who went home with the points after a 4 - 0 win.

Division 3 North

Southport v Carlisle United



Meanwhile... at Brunton Park

Carlisle Reserves v Consett



All of the above programmes have their own character; unlike modern day issues.

To finish off here is one from 5 years later in Scottish Division A

22 November 1952

Aberdeen v Falkirk



Aberdeen had very striking cover designs through the late 40s and 1950s. I like the simplicity of this one.

22/11/81 Charity Match
Apart from the fact that both teams came from Sussex, the only thing I can add is that the recipients of the proceeds, Gifford House, is a Worthing based home for veterans.

Trio of old(ish) non-league issues.
Not sure of any of the scorelines, I'm afraid.

73 years ago

Bedford Avenue v Hounslow Town (Corinthian Lge)



Also 73 years ago

Lancing Athletic v Tooting & Mitcham (FA Amateur Cup)



62 years ago

Tavistock v Plymouth Argyle (Devon Senior Cup)

I like the sound of the Cosy Cafe for a cuppa after the match.

Monday 23rd November 1959 (61 years ago today)

Floodlit Friendly

Crystal Palace 4 (Sexton 2, Easton, Gavin), Sutton United 2





Single sheet prog for a floodlit friendly against our near neighbours and the borough where I now live. Palace put out a decent side and 29-year old Dave Sexton was among them, scoring twice here and hitting 11 goals in just 27 games for Palace, his last pro club before his stellar coaching and managerial career began. Started off at Luton in 1951 but sprang to fame in the West Ham academy where he spent 4 formative years between 1952 and 56. Briefly at Orient but scored well at Brighton (26 in 49 games), winning a promotion, before moving to SE25 in Summer 1959. Seems he may have had dodgy knees as retired at 30. Pic dated 19th Nov 1959:-

23 November 1929

North Eastern League

Workington v Scotswood

A pocket sized 4 page issue consisting of a folded piece of thin card. Team line ups on page 2; short editorial/information piece on page 3 and an advert on the back.

Workington won this match 5 - 2



23 November 1949

Wales v Belgium

A fantastic 5 - 1 win for Wales. There was a hat trick for Trevor Ford. This international friendly match was played at Ninian Park with an attendance of 27998.

Bolton 5 Derby 1 (Broome)

att: 28,127



29 years ago

Blaenau Amateurs v Pwllheli & District in the Gwynedd League.

I like this cover as it reminds me in the steam railway from Llandudno to Blaenau which is a fascinating journey and well worth the ticket price.
Blaenau Ffestiniog must be the greyest town I've ever seen. All that slate, probably. And it's always raining.

Saturday 24th November 1973

Division II

Portsmouth 2 Crystal Palace 2 (Rogers 2, 1 pen)

Gate: 14,211


As it stood at kick-off, Palace marooned at the bottom. Not the best of starts to a season but nearly got out of bother, only going down on the very last day by drawing at Cardiff when a win would have kept us up.


Sharp-shooter Don Rogers, 2 goals here and 15 in all that season.

24 November 1928

Chelsea v Port Vale

A 3 - 3 draw played in front of 23,305.

The cartoon on the cover reflects on the 2 - 1 defeat by Millwall the previous week as well as looking forward to the game v Port Vale.




On the same day:

Carlisle United Reserves v Workington (1st team)

North Eastern League Challenge Cup

Standard Carlisle programme from their first season in the League. The content includes a couple of pages about the FA Cup match that the 1st team were playing away that day at Wrexham.
