Friday 8 April 1988

A real relegation 6-pointer was in prospect for this evening as I was looking forward to Shrewsbury Town versus Bournemouth.

The match itself has slipped away into the mists of time in terms of what actually happened on the pitch.  However, what I do remember is the absolute downpour that we enjoyed as we trudged our way to the ground and then endured throughout the 90 minutes of action on what started out as a football pitch but ended up as a quagmire.

In the history books it says Shrewsbury Town 2-1 Bournemouth which meant that Town were now 5 points clear of both Bournemouth and Sheffield United with 4, 6 and 5 games remaining.

The night just got better and better, as I watched Friday Night Live upon my arrival at home.
