Memories will come flooding back for seasoned Hucknall Town supporters who watch the live FA Cup match on BBC TV tonight (Friday).
For it is set to feature non-league Warrington Town, who hosted one of the most infamous matches in Town’s history back in 1986.
The two teams clashed in the quarter-finals of the FA Vase. But the tie was remembered not only for its result -- a 3-1 defeat for The Yellows -- but also for hooliganism, which erupted in Warrington’s clubhouse at half-time and appeared to be triggered by the miners’ strike of 1984/85.
Said Town boss Ted Mullane at the time: “All I wanted to do was find my family and go home.”
Warrington, who are managed by Shaun Reid, brother of ex- England player Peter Reid, have reached the First Round of the FA Cup for the first time in their history.
They play Exeter City in tonight’s tie.
