Not wanting to gum up any of the league specific boards, but maybe folks want to dip into their archives with memories of games they saw on this date in previous seasons?

I'll start in Armenia. April 17, 2010. Kilikia Yerevan 0 Impuls Dilijan 1. Huge stadium, but more people visiting the market outside than at the game! After watching the first half, I could see their point. More on the blog at https://groundhoppers.blog/2016/01/10/h ... n-armenia/

Had to dig deep for this one.
Friday 17/04/2015 Seaham Red Star 5-1 Willington Northern League Division 2.
Strange thing is I had forgotten all about it!
From memory, Seaham had confirmed their Div 2 championship a few games previously, but were to be presented with the trophy so along I went the three miles down the road to Seaham Town Park. The final table shows Seaham as runaway winners and they had occupied the top spot since they beat Washington 5-2 at home on the 25th November 2014.
From my records, the Seaham scorers were Dean Nicholson (2), Liam McBryde, Lewis Wing (now a regular first team choice at Middlesbrough) and David Palmer.
The Willington scorer was Aidan Goodey.

Here's another:
17/04/11 Humbledon Plains Farm 12-0 Hylton Castle Seniors; Sunderland Sunday League Cup Semi-Final, played on a park pitch at Farringdon in Sunderland.
Back then I did watch quite a few Sunday League matches.
This one was memorable for being completely one sided. Plains Farm fielded a full squad of well known Northern League players and Hylton Castle managed to turn up in matching strips. The referee was so bored he offered the visitors the final whistle with the score at 10-0 on 60 minutes. Confident of a comeback, the captain declined. 7 minutes and two goals later the ref offered again. The offer was accepted but there was a difference of opinion about the final score! I offered to show the losing captain my own notes and as they matched those of the referee the result was agreed :mrgreen:
