Saturday 2 April 1988

Back in the day, the Easter weekend’s football fixtures saw many of the major issues decided.  With Liverpool running away with things at the top of the first division however, their 2-1 defeat at the City Ground, Nottingham merely postponed the inevitable.  With them still having 8 games to play and nearest challengers Manchester United only 6, the Reds were still eleven points clear, still in theory requiring 3 more wins to make sure.

In the second division, Shrewsbury Town were still playing for all the points they could get, so a 1-0 win over Leeds United at Gay Meadow was most welcome – mercurial Scottish winger Victor Kasule grabbing the glory.  With Huddersfield Town and Reading adrift in the bottom two places, the win kept Shrewsbury’s head above the water and a point clear of Sheffield United and Bournemouth.

In other news, this 18 year old young buck went out with his Mum and Dad, his Mum’s cousin and her boyfriend – that’s Mum’s cousin’s boyfriend, not Mum’s.  Such an alternative arrangement may just have made my Dad a little uncomfortable!
