  1. I think it took a bit more than a "niggle" to get players of that era off the pitch permanently ! In 1965/66 there were 8 substitutions, in 1966/67 only 1 (Terry Bush as you noted earlier) and then under the tactical "regime" 16 in 1967/68. A "useless" fact is that the all time total of substitutions for city is now just about 4600 !
  2. A single substitute was introduced from season 1965/66 but for 2 seasons a change was only permitted as a result of injury. From season 1967/68 the rules changed to tactical substitutes allowed.
  3. The first sub used was George Showell on 28th August 1965 away at Manchester City - a 2-2 draw !
  4. Home PL 97 Won 41 Drawn 24 Lost 32 Goals 147-122 Away PL 98 Won 32 Drawn 27 Lost 39 Goals 121-139 Total PL 195 Won 73 Drawn 51 Lost 71 Goals 268-261 (EFL only)
  5. My email today invited me to spend the meagre amount as notified in the earlier email. However, I had cleared the balance several weeks ago and on logging in hey presto, the amount remaining is not as contained in today's message !! Am I surprised ?
  6. This match on 14/08/1982 was the first for Terry Cooper as manager. The team was : Shaw, Stevens, Llewellyn, Newman, Boyle, Riley, Economou, Musker, Chandler, Ritchie & Bray with Terry himself and Thompson coming on as subs.
  7. Also Alec Briggs, Gordon Low and Gordon Parr ?
  8. On 27th April 1968 Mike Gibson made his 196th consecutive appearance, a club record. Below is a list of all players with an unbroken century or more appearances. Mike Gibson 196 consecutive apps 28/03/1964 to 27/04/1968 : Total apps = 375 Rob Newman 188 consecutive apps 02/04/1988 to 11/05/1991 : Total apps = 487 Brian Clark 159 consecutive apps 23/04/1963 to 03/09/1966 : Total apps = 215 Bryan Drysdale 150 consecutive apps 09/08/1969 to 06/09/1972 : Total apps = 330 Gordon Low 149 consecutive apps 21/03/1964 to 1

  12. Close, but you could go for November 1901 in the FA Cup and September 1922 (the first league meeting) !
  13. Sad news !! Not sure if mentioned in previous replies but Bury are the only team that BCFC have played at all 4 levels of the League.
  14. Micky Mellon started 35 games and came on as sub in 13. He scored just the 1 goal. Mark Coper never played for the first team !
  15. Take your pick from these (going back to 1971) - either started 1 match or just 1 sub appearance. Stefan Marinovic Tyreeq Bakinson Opanin Edwards Shawn McCoulsky Diego De Girolamo Arnold Garita Connor Lemonheigh- Evans Tom Williams Nathan Abbey Tony Grant Danny Wring Wayne Brown G Durbin
