    I don’t recall that but it probably means that it definitely happened

    In Glavins first season, we finished mid table and then got promoted the next time ( for his first full season )
    Then again I could be wrong

    No resale value and therefore a failure. So we won a few football matches. That's not what it's about guys.

    We did indeed. I thought it was a bit cringey to be honest but everything else made up for it.

    Glavin started that season slow because Clarke wasn't using him quite right. I remember the first third of the season being a worry that we might struggle to stay up but then Ronnie came alive and Aylott and Parker started their partnership and the only way was up.

    Reading through the various posts about Clarkie, Norman and Danny reminds us just how fortunate we were to have such great teams playing sublime football and making the football world sit up and take notice.

    Always loads of other factors in play of course, including the Board’s ambition, quality of coaches, stars in alignment etc.

    But it’s difficult to overstate the impact Clarkie had in that first stint - on and off the field e.g. before he arrived, the players had to wash their own training kit. He brought a level of professionalism never seen before at the club.

    Lining up to salute the fans was a direct lift from Dirty Leeds of course, but we’d never seen anything like it before at the Well. Before then, the players simply strolled down the tunnel. And it was Clarkie who had them walk out to music “You’re the one that I want” initially - big number one at the time. Again, it produced a change in mentality amongst players and crowd alike.

    Wonderful, wonderful times

    It was a good thing for Aylott though, when Clarke left for Leeds, because they'd had a falling out and he was only a sub then.
    Hunter took over and big Trev really took his chance well, back in the first team.
    And after just missing out in season '81, it was such a disappointment that we allowed him to leave, for Millwall on a low tribunal arranged fee.

    That's correct. We went up into Division 3 in 1979 and into Division 2, under Hunter, in 1981. Glavin signed just after we had been promoted to Division 3.

    But if Maggie hadn't have intervened in the early 80s it would have probably happened maybe 8 to 10 before it did. But she caused the town and so the club to stagnate at best and more probably go backwards for years.
