Month: March 1986

5th March 1986- FA Cup Fifth Round, Watford 1 Bury 1

The game was postponed from 15th February.  Bad weather meant this was the first competitive game we’d played since 6th February.  However GT did take the team down to Devon, which wasn’t affected as much by the snow and ice, to play a friendly in mid February against Exeter City which we won 4-0.

In the programme Tim Adams discusses the possibility of a Super League, which had been talked of since England’s World Cup win, and considers the teams that might be involved.  Interestingly Chelsea aren’t even mentioned in the article despite appearing twice in the ‘Super League Contenders’ tables.
