    Keith Mercer scored with his head if I remember correctly.
    In those days we didn't have VCR but I used to tape the commentary on my
    tape recorder. Sadly those old tapes have long since gone !!
     
  2. Yes 2-0 wasn't it ?

    Correct.

    I ask because near the end of the coverage on The Big Match the cameras panned into
    the Rookery End and I briefly saw myself on TV which was a big thing back then!.

    I’m usually pretty good with this stuff, but I don’t remember this game, or it being on The Big Match at all. It seems a strange choice of TV game but I suppose they were jumping on the bandwagon of Watford soaring away at the top of the 4th division at that time.
     
  5. Think G Plumley was in goal for NC and played a blinder which was why about a dozen years later I wasn't too concerned that he was going to play in goal for us in a SF.

    We were runaway leaders at the time under GT so an element of intrigue .
    Brentford away and Southend home and away also televised. And West Ham in
    the FA Cup which wasn't shown due to industrial action.

    Not Brentford away. That was the following season, a 3-3 draw. The 77/78 game was a 3-0 midweek win early in the season when Sam Ellis single-handedly repelled a half-hearted pitch invasion by some Brentford schoolboys.
