“ticket office”

Hull City “Ticket office” year 1990 ©stuartroyclarke cat.0215

The day of an FA Cup match versus Oldham Athletic for Hull City, often derided as ‘the sleeping giant’ – with more attention on the rugby success.

Football has before wowed the region: City’s Boothferry Park had 55,000 for the visit of Manchester United in 1949.
Notwithstanding this day in the sunshine, in The Cup, FC are about to get relegated to the third tier of English football and lose yet more support.

“fog has lifted on The Valley”

Charlton Athletic “Fog has lifted on The Valley” year 1990 ©stuartroyclarke cat.0021


The ground dates from 1919, at a time when the club found an abandoned sand and chalk pit, with deep sides, then, relying on volunteers, dug out and fashioned a football ground.
In 1990 the ground is derelict, Charlton forced to play all their matches ‘away’.
