I remember that game !! I was plodding across the Pacific from Panama to Aukland. One of my jobs for Marconi was to run a Vernons Pools entry for the crew and I had to diligently take the footy results each week so they could check their coupon. When I heard this result, I typed it onto an official Vernons results form (although it had nothing to do with the coupon) and stuck it on the notice board.
It was like that advert from yesteryear .... loads of scousers wandering around the ship saying: "Stafford Rangers, WHO ARE THEY ?"
