The question of whether the Crows' 13-0 win over Brache was a record (Crow 29/01) made me wonder if anyone knows what the record aggregate of opposing teams in one match could be?
I remember one match in the 60s when it had been snowing, the centre of the pitch was muddy, but the sidelines were nearly clear.
As the match went on, both teams made a habit of taking the ball up the sides and crossing it into the goalmouth where the bad ground made scoring a lottery, resulting in a final score of 8-8!
As a sideline, the Crow sports reporter at the time, Frank Wilmott, was not available, so his deputy (who I will not name) was doing the job instead.
He was muffled up in a heavy raincoat, scarf, and cap, and when the first goal went in, he laboriously undid his coat, reached in, took out his notepad, recorded the score and then put everything away again.
Afterwards he made the fatal remark, "I hope that's the last time I have to do that today." Sixteen goals later...
