The Anonymous Widower

Crying in Their Beer

As an Ipswich suppoter, I hate to say it, but Norwich City have given me one of my best football moments.

It was the 18th February 1967 and C and myself went for a drink in a Greenall Whitley pub, called something like the Royal Oak on the East Lancashire Road (A580) by St. Helens.  C wasn’t into football much, although she used to go to Barnet as a child with her father.  But she was so amused at a table full of disgruntled Manchester United fans, crying in their beer, after Norwich had beaten them 2-1 in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

She actually remembered this incident a few months before she died.  I’ll never forget it!
