    Quiz question

    Following on from a different thread about teams we haven't yet played that are in the league, here's today's quickie:

    Of the 84 league teams that we have played in the English pyramid, which 5 clubs did we last play the longest time ago? The two sides that we last played the longest time ago we played back in the 1980s. Exeter City are 6th in the list, we played them last on 12 November 2002, so there are five sides that we played before then that we haven't faced since and will be in the league at the start of next season. Welsh cup matches not included.

    Re: Quiz question

    I was randomly looking at figures v Darlington earlier, and i was surprised that we haven't played them since 2001.
    They were a regular fixture in the 90s

    Eric, I posted the answer 3 minutes ago. Am I right or what like?

    Re: Quiz question

    I seen us play at Rochdale but can’t remember exact year. It might have been late 90’s. So that could include them.

    Re: Quiz question

    Thanks for this Eric. It’s given me and Al 90 mins of nostalgia as we have been out walking.

    It’s prompted a follow up Question

    Three teams lost their League status in the 70’s. We had never until then / and have never since played League football against any of them

    They went out 1972, 1977 and 1978

    Who are the three teams. And which three teams replaced them?

    Cambridge replaced Bradford Park Avenue, then it might been Oxford replacing Accrington Stanley and, a complete guess, Peterborough came in for Gateshead?

    0-2 at Haig Avenue, was a giant killing act according to papers of the day.

    Re: Quiz question

    I don't know the answer to this but I reckon Eric's doing nothing so can sort the answer out.

    Which 5 teams have we played most often in League, FA Cup and League Cup as a total (not including Welsh Cup)

    I am going to go for
    Preston
    Burnley
    Leyton Orient
    Bristol City
    Birmingham City.

    What's the answer Eric?

    Re: Quiz question

    Technically Newport County are not the same club as the current one. So we will never play them again .

    The did bring a good following to NP when we stuffed them 4-0 just before they went out of the League. They are probably still bitter towards us, not for that result but just generally.
