Masala

I met Ray Cashley last night

Recommended Posts

He's involved in Weston Super Mare FC and called round to the parents to collect their subs for the monthly draw. Of course I had to tell him I saw him score for City against Hull in 1973. For those young uns, he was a goalkeeper hence a special goal!!

During the 1970’s my mother and father were in a local supermarket.  They were at the checkout loading groceries.  My mother looked up and saw a young chap she thought she recognised as being one of my older brothers friends.  She said “Hello my love, how are you?”  The young chap said hello and that he was fine.  They carried on loading the groceries into the bags, and my father, laughing, asked my mother who she thought it was, she explained she couldn’t put a name to his face but he was one of my older brother’s mates.  My dad told her who it was, and after giving it some thought, they realised she knew his face from City players photos around my bedroom walls.

Great memories of those days.

Yeah remember that day so well. Was  Tuesday Afternoon KO. Was at collage day release thing in Torquay, got back to Newton Abbot bus station and bought the Herald Express, and there it was in Stop Press,. Unbeaten all season Leeds 0-1 Bristol City.

Well it didn't say unbeaten Leeds but that's how it read to me.!!!!

Can't remerber that Ang, can't recall Fear ever scoring a hat trick.

I'm probably wrong need Slarti or one of the statos to confirm.

Just my memory from the dim and distant past after a few beers and a bottle of red so could be wrong!! 

Always loved watching Keith, of all our players over the last 15 years Noble is the only one's style of play that reminded me him.

26th February 1974.

City 5 Millwall 2

Tuesday afternoon one week after the Leeds victory.’

I remember it being a Keith Fear hat trick too, and just under 10k in the ground iirc.

First time I ever heard ‘in the Millwall slums’.

Agreed, a Tuesday night game if I remember correctly, but a long time ago!!

If it was a night game  during the power strike , no wonder he scored!

The Millwall and Leeds games were afternoon kick offs during the power strikes but the Hull game was definately under lights, as confirmed by Cidered Abroad farther up the thread

Most definitely a night game, wet as well as very windy.

Pitch brightly lit with the floodlights also illuminating the rain as it fell.

Action on the pitch lit up, in stark contrast to the crowd in the dark stands

A proper traditional ‘Ashton Gate under the lights’ experience, so much more atmospheric than these days of brightly lit stands, and the memory of Cashley’s extraordinary goal all the more vivid for that.

certainly was, but never quite the same after he got glassed

I don't recall anything about this.

Was it reported at the time or just gossip?

I went to both matches, but, for some reason, I seem to recall also playing a midweek afternoon game against what was then Leyton Orient.

Does anybody else recall that, or is it just age playing tricks with my memory?

No it was fact. Happened at Platform 1

Yes, I knew a few members of the ‘Clifton Mafia’ who were there.  Part of Clifton Down railway station.  A lot of very dodgy goings on in the Bristol club scene in those days.

Reported in the EP at the time that a Rovers fan was responsible iirc.

Is there any footage of it, I  can't find anything on the internet??

I don't think there was. I do remember HTV following up the story the next day and Roger Malone tried to get Cash to do it again in broad daylight. Of course the wind had dropped by then and the whole stunt looked silly.

I was also on the East End that night and can only echo what has already been said. I think there was a split second where we saw the bounce of the ball leave the keeper stranded and we thought this could go in . . .  yessssss!

No midweek afternoon against what would then have been............Orient, they had a short time calling themselves that, but soon reverted to LO.
