I’d love to know what tactical changes Kev would have proposed when we were 1-0 down, although he was probably still supporting Aldershot and Chelsea back then.

You’re keen :o) Full match! Minus a few seconds here or there which were missing from the VHS copy I had, so the match clock won’t be 100% accurate in it at times.

Four years before I was born.

What would the equivalent be nowadays? How good a team would we have to thump?

I seem to remember that a load of Baggies fans joined us up at Kidderminster in the early 90s and we started boinging from that day on.

No, no, no, trust me, in thirty years time Woking supporters will be saying “Who is Kingfield Ender, and why have they built this impressive nine storey bottle bar overlooking Willow Court in his name?”

yeah, we were granted the freedom of using the “boing boing baggies” while Stevenage then just copied and stole it from us :-)

I won’t spoil it by quoting it here, but this match coverage includes some really complimentary commentary, especially as Worsfold shoulders in his header. I can still quote it now! So so proud of my team when I first watched it back.
Also, the video doesn’t do justice to just how good Buzaglo’s finish was to put away the first goal. Magical.

What.a.day!

Really ? 30 years ? Blimey. What an incredible day out that was. At the end of that season I headed over to NZ and Australia for an OE. Only spent 2 weeks in NZ that time and 10 months in Oz so I went back for a longer look 6 or so years later.....

My main memory was the way the WBA fans applauded the coaches of Woking fans as we left, always had a soft spot for them since.

Two thoughts immediately spring to mind.

1. Never knew Simeon Hodson was on the subs bench for West Brom that day.
A player I almost think of as synonymous with the Conference given how many times he seemed to play against Woking for various clubs.
In actuality though he’s one of the few players in English football to have been relegated from each of the top 5 divisions at some point in his career.

2. It’s an absolute tragedy that television programmes still never show the third goal in its full glory whenever FA Cup third round highlights programmes are on.
Such a truly wonderful counter-attacking team goal.

We got off the coach and a WBA fan made a very rude gesture and showed a 5-0 sign. Loved it for The Human Growbag, Terry Worsfold. Years later I got Timmy Buzz to autograph a programme.
