Football On Christmas Day

Danny Baker on his program today, asked if anybody had been into a football ground on Christmas Day.

I phoned up and said that I’d been to a match at White Hart Lane on Christmas Day morning.  Danny was rather sceptical, to say the least!

I remember that we went to do an hour or so’s work in my father’s print works, as he was rather a workaholic to say the least.  We then drove to the ground from Wood Green. I’m not certain, who we played, but it was somewhere in the mid-1950s and it could have been Luton Town.

We then went home for a late Christmas lunch.

I did find a bit of history about Christmas Day football here.

One thing that they must have had in those days was a decent public transport system over the holidays. And ASLEF wouldn’t have been on strike.
