Further Premier League titles followed in 1974-75 and 1975-76, before Barton had a couple of fantastic seasons competing in the FA Vase.
Despite us being into the cricket season, the weather was pretty bleak. There was a fair nip in the air and dark clouds were abundant. We waited until the teams had gone past before we headed over to the far side.
We headed back via Luton and the M1. We were both glad we’d made the effort. Barton seemed a friendly club even if the match hadn’t been the best.
