Nelson

Post by Pirate Jim »

Who’s going to Nelson today ? The Manc lads- myself, Jonathan and Brian will be attending. I predict a 3-0 victory with Carver, Newell and Trialist ??? on the scoresheet.

Can't take anything for granted at a team that have won away at Real Madrid and Man U.

Yes, a former FL Club.
I always look out for their result. Lots of family there. My great grandfather was Mayor of Nelson and known as ‘the father of Nelson’. I’ll still be rooting for the ‘Port’, though!

Remember Southport's record Football League victory was against Nelson. 8-1 on New Years Day 1931.


For those further interested in Nelson, I found this article on Google. . . It is a twenty page PDF. . .

Anoraks will love it :D
