87/88 was the game that Sparrow played a blinder in. Think he also got us the pen against 'Boro the following season, when we came back to win 3-2 after being 2-0 down.

yep...Sparrow and David Howells changed the game when they came on. I took a very shy girl from school to this game...I was horrified getting off the tube at Seven Sisters to find Boro kicking off with Spurs, Old Bill, anyone. Ushered the terrified girl away and up the stairs. Later she said the fighting was the best bit of the day. She was buzzing!!

oh...and Ollie Morah. One of the mysteries that one?
I played with him and against him and he was a real handful. Strong and aggressive but also quick with a good touch (which you’d expect in those days with a kid from Lilleshall)

Strange

David Howells and a few other youth team players used to come into Tony's cafe on a Saturday morning in the early 80's for a cuppa - presumably before they started training. We'd be in there waiting for KR's coaches to turn up.
