I couldn’t tell you. Have next to no recollection of any side until the late 80s.

Couldn't tell you what my first game even was because my Dad started taking me when I was so young. However, the first game I wrote a match report for was in December 2010, when I would have just turned 18.

The team was: Andrew Little, Ricky Anane, Reiss Noel, Mark Ricketts (Jerome Maledon 90), Joe McNerney, Adam Doyle, Joe Keehan, Lee Sawyer (Aswad Thomas 84), Elvis Hammond (Moses Ademola 74), Dave Gilroy, Sam Hurrell. Unused subs were Alan Inns and Craig Faulconbridge.

We beat Havant & Waterlooville 3-1 with goals from Anane, Keehan and Ademola. Havant's team included Aaron Howe, Manny Williams and Giuseppe Sole. I believe Graham Baker was sacked just over a month later.

The team (seen here) was as the programme northeast card, although a few swapped numbers.

Good to see Barry from ABBA far right.

That's actually Brian Wilson, who, having become increasingly disillusioned with life in the Isthmian Premier, left soon after this photograph was taken to form the Beach Boys. As usual, I haven't checked my facts on this one, but Wikipedia will probably confirm.

That’s one of my first Cardinal Heroes when I was a kid, Frank Parsons, he was a real joker, he’s standing on a ball to look that tall.

Don't know the first game I saw (would have been in the 1966-67 season), but the first game I specifically remember was the Surrey Senor Shield final against Leatherhead in May 1968, which was held at Guildford's ground. Team was:

Brian Farris
Alan Sexton
Brian Oliver
Dick Wooler
Brian Finn
Dingo Elton
Johnny Moore
Ernie Tindall
Trevor Waughman
Roger Fletcher
Sammy Malcolmson

We won 3-2, with a hat-trick from flying winger Malcolmson, who was with the Royal Navy. Even though he was Scottish, he went on to represent New Zealand (bizarrely, as a centre-half) in the 1982 World Cup Finals.

Would’ve been mid to late 80s and was a friendly against a team beginning with ‘O’. (Oxshott?) I remember nothing, other than the name ‘Buzaglo’. Pretty sure both brothers played.

Not sure of my first game, but one of the first games I remember clearly was Woking v Carshalton Surrey Senior Cup final in 1989. Any idea of the line up?
