    Oakwell Sports. Was it a guy called Keith who ran it? Remember him opening up on Boxing Day 1992 for BFC players to collect AstroTurf trainers they'd ordered just before Christmas prior to that afternoons match, which was played on a skating rink. I gather, I think from South Riding fanzine, he was given no sweeteners from the club at the time, even though he'd run around stockists miles away to get them, given many were already shut for Christmas and New Year.

    We lost 4-2 if I remember too.

    Thanks for all of the responses and comments on this thread. Got the answer I was after, and plenty of other good memories too. Cheers.
