Who can remember when they put 7 past us at millmoor and we had 3 keepers that day!Remember their left winger Alan Groves very quick.Not sure if Ted Mcdougal played against that day before Man Utd signed him.

Seem to remember that Carl Gilbert scored two goals and let in two as a stand-in keeper

Too old for me this one.

But IO do seem to remember an opposition team having to use 3 keepers at Millmoor - might have been Blackpool or Rochdale?

All happened very quickly, don't think original keeper lasted more than 15 minutes and then reserve keeper got injured after about 5 minutes.

Wonder if Zippy can confirm. No idea what score ended up.

I was there. Cold winters night. I think Trevor Womble was one of our three keepers. Final score 2-7 ?

Just checked ...match was in October 1972...Seamus McDonagh was our keeper at the start, but went off injured...Carl Gilbert actually let in three and I think that our other keeper was Mick Leng (haven't been able to verify that though)

Yes, I was there...and I also remember the Millers being applauded off the pitch at the end (at least we tried to get back into the game, but ended up letting more goals in)

I can remember Carl Gilbert in goal, ducking out of the way for 1 of their goals.I can just imagine what he thought when the ball came at him.

I can remember him instinctively trying to head away a cross instead of trying to catch or punch the ball!

I was there. I spent part of the morning before the game telling my PE Teacher at Maltby GS, Roy Moss what a good side we had and how we were going to challenge for promotion.

I vividly recall standing dejectedly on the Railway End as the goals went in. Carl Gilbert in goal was a comedy act, much as I loved him as a striker.

I was the subject of great merriment in PE the next day - repeatedly being asked by all and sundry how the Millers had gone on.
