    I was at Scunthorpe during the 2003/04 Division 3 campaign. We lost 6-2 that day. I don't remember much. The first away game I have memories of is the same season, away at York. We won 2-0 with both goals coming in the last 2 minutes of the game. I mostly remember the fence caging the fans in. Not being able to move an inch without bumping into somebody.

    Coventry City's Highfield Road on Easter Monday 05/04/99

    Lost 1-0 from a breakaway from a corner we had, Paul Jones had made a good save but the rebound was put home by George Boateng.

    I remember everything was sky blue even the toilet piping, a certain Saints great Gordon Strachan was Cov's manager that day with us then being managed by Dave Jones.

    A couple of weeks later I went away again to watch us play Wimbledon at the renamed "Dell"hurst Park where 9,000 Saints fans travelled up to watch us win 2-0 with Pahars scoring the 1st ad Le Tissier getting the 2nd straight from a corner.

    Six Fields (Northampton) in 96. Won 0-1, Darren Bazeley with a good goal. Such an odd place to have a stadium.

    Blackpool away 2011, When they were in the Premier League. Even now I have no idea how my dad managed to get tickets to that game, Kieran Richardson scored for us and we won 1-2. Adam scored a penelty for them, just before he left for Liverpool.

    The best atmosphere I had experienced, the stand was shaking! & we stood all game much to dads disgust :D

    Gillingham away, 1996, won 3-2. They got two penalties. A load of us congregated behind the goal, telling our 'keeper Tim Carter he could keep them out. He looked round and shook his head with a look of panic in his eyes. Correctly as it turned out, as he was sent the wrong way both times.

    Ah, cherished memories...

    I can't actually remember for sure, even though it was only a couple of years ago!

    Fairly sure it was a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.

    This one, from March 2001: http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/N170301.html

    My memory's a bit sketchy but there was some sort of deal where transport was cheap (maybe a fiver) if you had a couple of vouchers from a programme and the local paper. It was a cracking game, even though we lost, on what was an enormous pitch at Belle Vue.

    Feb 2002: beat sheff wed at Hillsborough 2- 1 with a 94th minute winner to send about 6000 millers go wild, unforgettable away day, and the same thing happened the season after aswel, same scoreline, same time we scored the winner 94th minute, but a different goal scorer.
