As a companion to "how's your team doing", how about some memories of the first time that you saw a proper football / rugby / cricket / hockey match? Did that first time lead to a lifelong following of your team? For my part, first football match was Raith Rovers v Queen of the South, League Cup tie at the start os 1967-68......we had beaten QoS 7-2 the last game of the previous season to clinch promotion, so I went along with an uncle expecting more of the same. Close I suppose, as this time it was 5-2 - to Queens! Nevertheless, have been watching the Rovers ever since. First hockey game was Fife Flyers v Dundee Rockets , circa 1970, and the one and only time I've watched first-class cricket was a day's play at Hastings , 1974 I think, Sussex with John Snow playing Worcestershire - Glenn Turner, Ron Headley and Basil D'Oliviera amongst those that I can recall.
