My first game at Goodison was in April 1963 against Spurs. A ticket for the Goodison Road Stand was a 10th birthday present. Alex Young scored the only goal with a soaring header.

We went on to win the League. A wonderful memory including the sight of my normally very quiet Dad waving his cap in the air. RIP, the Golden Vision.

David, you can see a very brief and grainy ITN Source video clip that includes that goal by the Vision here.

There is one thing about BK he can certainly wax lyrical and bring a tear to his and everybody else's eye, but in this case he is only telling the truth.

Dave,

Was in the Boys Pen that day and, as was the custom, left at three quarter time to try to get in the stands. Never worked of course. Ended up in Goodison Rd and could hardly see a thing... memory playing up but did Alex score late on? I would have missed it!

All the best.
