Eric Bramwell's Story

In 1974 i was in the Army in Germany and was billeted with two Yorkshire lads both Leeds fans. From the moment of the 4th round draw I had to endure weeks of mickey-taking about how many players Chester would need on the pitch to beat Leeds, and how many goals Leeds were going to score etc etc. Came matchday, came the BBC World Service 10o'clock news, the announcer read the scoreline Chester 3 Leeds United 0. Imagine my delight and imagine the horror on the faces of my tormentors at that news. So, Yorkie and Chancer, if you are still out there, have you got over the shock yet??
