Posh v Ashington 1958

I started supporting Posh round about this time, I never can remember what my first game was or anything about it, but I found out something in an email the other day. The team that day included a forward line who all scored more than one hundred goals each, happy days indeed. The front five scored 695 goals for Posh including our all time record holder Dennis Emery's contribution of 231.

Wonderful days, brilliant players, Emery the very best of the lot. I started in April 1951 Nick, so would have been at the Ashington game.

bristleposh's post inspired me to join the forum..! Happy memories and a great link

I started sometime in 1956 and vividly remember Teslim Balogun an enormous Nigerian centre forward who only played a few games for the reserves. Scored 6 in 3 matches including 4 in one match but as my dad used to say, problem is he would rather walk the ball in than shoot. Amazing that we used to get 4 to 5,000 just to see the stiffs. Then there was Sven Linberg, a Swedish goalie 17 games but only 13 goals against, were we trailblazers in overseas players?

That said the glory days were the 'W's Walls, Whittaker, Walker; the 'R's Raynor, Rigby, Ripley and the 'Goals' McNamee, Smith, Bly, Emery, Hails. Great times, may the current bunch please us similarly.

They certainly were the glory days.
Welcome to the board moysroadmajor.
As with bristle, my memory gets a bit hazy as to exact dates but i started in the early 50s. I was definitely at the Ashington game and as I used to go to most reserve games I remember the big Nigerian.
Teslim Balogun has an entry in Wikipedia
He died at the age of only 45.
As for the "current bunch", much as we would all like to see them succeed, they may well please us this season but I really can't honestly expect them to compare to "the 'W's Walls, Whittaker, Walker; the 'R's Raynor, Rigby, Ripley and the 'Goals' McNamee, Smith, Bly, Emery, Hails."

Roger Kirkpatrick from Leicester, no it wasn't him, he was often called Mr Pickwick, I knew Roger I was refereeing at the same time as he was. This galloping referee was in the Midland League days....used to lift up his knees as high as his waist, strange runner.

You do talk some rubbish at times. You expect me to remember every game, all details including the crowd number, the scorers,the results,the weather,the names of the Officials etc.etc.etc over the whole of my 66 years of Posh watching ?? As I say, you do talk some rubbish at times. I may be good, but not that good. :lol: :roll:

We're all lucky that Brian has the books to which he can refer.
Having met Brian on a couple of occasions I know that he also knows many facts off the top of his head.
I think your sarcastic comment is uncalled for Wycliffe.

Well come on then Brian! :roll: The Galloping referee, Roger Kirkpatrick, Mr Fussy and Mr Prosser! Who is who and what did they do and what were their characteristics? :lol: :wink:

Roger Kirkpatrick was on the panel of World Cup referees. He was about to dress one morning when he heard the postman visit, the letter was a World cup appointment, he opened it to see the word Hibernian and scoffed at having to go to Scotland when he could have gone anywhere in the world, he read no more and stuffed in in his dressing gown pocket.
In the evening he opened and read the letter in order that he could reply only to find it was Hibernian MALTA Roger was now a happy man. His two English linesmen traveled with him. No 4th officials those days.
