Help with a couple of 90's friendly games?!

Evening everyone.

Recently I've been using the Groundhopper app and attempting to fill in the gaps of all the games I've been to over the years (not an easy task as I've never bothered keeping hold of programmes!)

I have a couple of vague memories from the mid-90's of grounds that I've been to to watch NUFC, both in friendlies, but can't find any details of the history of these fixtures online.

This is a bit of a long shot, but I was wondering whether anyone on here might be able to help me out with details (dates, final scores etc) of the following games. As I say my memory is only vague as I was only about 9 or 10!

Whitby Town (away) pre-season friendly, can't remember what year, all I know is that Jeff Winter was the referee as my Dad hated him!

Ipswich Town (away) another 90's pre-season friendly, played at Kings Lynn's ground, The Walks. I believe this was probably a reserve warm up game, but again, details are sketchy.

If anyone was there, or can shed any more light on either of these it would be much appreciated. If only to convince myself I didn't just dream any of this! Big Grin

Cheers!

I can't help with your request, but I can tell you that Steve Bruce is a fat heeded useless Wallop, Mike Ashley is a disease and I hope he dies soon.

Thanks for your response. Irritatingly it seems seasons 92-93 onwards, up until 05-06 season all seem to be bad links! Bugger.

Try this link on Amazon or contact the author. There are a few books written about the history of the club and their authors may be able to help you.
