Does everybody remember when the players use to come over to the Benches

during the warm up to sign autos 83-84 onwards,great days!

Got the entire team on a Swansea City prog from a night game..beat them 6-1

Cheers Jim.

I can't say I remember the team coming over althought I'd stopped sitting there and gone back to the Shed by those days. My memory of the benches is that it was never a popular place until one Boxing Day we were playing Leicester, probably about 1979. I don't know why, but I decided to pay the 50p transfer from the Shed but for some reason so did a lot of other people, in fact a lot of the main faces of that time. Unusually for Leicester, well unique really because up until that day their away support at the Bridge could be counted on one hand but this day they turned up en-mass but very late so it wasn't as if everyone had migrated into the benches because of the away support, everyone was already in there, of course it was easy then to get in the North Stand. From that match on it was the place to be, at least that's how I remember it.
