Charlton away in 2003 was a good day, we were probably worth a replay against a then top 10 PL side.

Few City goals have been celebrated like Santos' equalizer that day! We didn't have a great team, but that made the performance all the sweeter.
It looks like the highlights are still available on Charlton Valley Pass, but I hesitate to sign up in case they are 20 seconds!
I drove over from Belgium for the day. A memorable day out!

I remember seeing Sean Devine outside the Valley that day, I think he only signed the day before and couldn’t play....like I said we deserved a replay by the way we played.

A great day to the other SJP.

Memories.

0530 pickup for me at Shutterton Lane on the coach from Dawlish outside the Langdon Secure Hospital(how appropriate )

My packed lunch.Riveta & low fat cottage cheese.Thanks mum,the lads took the pi55 about that asking if I was on a diet,despite being as skinny as a rake 😁

Picked a few other supporters at Exeter Services which included a few of my workmates.
Stopped once at Derby to change drivers(10 mins stop) arrived at Washington Services on the A1 at 1130.Hopped over a fence to a pub nearby.
The Police escort was at 1.30pm for the coaches(5 in all) & assorted cars.

The euphoria at 4.40pm.The internal lights turned off on the coach as we exited the city centre so as not to be better targets for the bricks & stones.

40 years...Where did that just go..
