NPL. 11th Sept 1973 Can't Post or Reply Privately

Fleetwood recently had their largest home league crowd since the above date. The score then was 1-1 but who were the opponents? Seventies stats are SO hard to get hold of! Any old NPL guys out there to help me please?

Cheers

Rob

The Rothman's Yearbook for 1974/75 shows a matrix of results (but not dates) for the NPL in 73/74.

Fleetwood had five 1-1 draws at home v Bangor, Gainsborough, Morecambe, Skem, and Stafford.
The Gainsboro match is asterisked to show it was a Sunday game.

I think the date you're after is midweek.
It could possibly be a cup game. Rothman's lists Fleetwood 1 Skem 1 in the Watneys Northern Premier Cup 2nd round.

Probably best to try your reference library for newspapers.
