Jen's first match was home to Leicester in the 71-72 season. Cannot remember the result but just loved the live spectacle of it all (even a live band with mace tossing conductor in those days) and the wit of the crowd; in the Clock End one wag called out after a great save “ and if you kick the ball with both feet he’ll catch it with both hands”.
Favourite memory is sitting in almost the same seats at Wembley for 1979 Cup Final as we had sat in for the 1978 final and reliving the point where, as Gordon McQueen says, “ everyone in the stadium knew the match was going to extra time“ . I still cannot quite believe it was possible for Alan Sunderland to score the winner in the dying seconds.
Having been a primary school teacher and college lecturer since 1971 Jen joined the Trades Union Congress in 1997 and at present work in the Economics Department.
