Fulham 1-5 Notts County, 20 November 1976

Recommended Posts

On 20 November 1976, Notts County clinched an impressive 5-1 win over a Fulham outfit featuring Bobby Moore, George Best and Rodney Marsh in a Second Division match at Craven Cottage.

Mick Vinter struck for the Magpies after just 45 seconds and went on to grab a second later in the game, while Steve Carter, Martin Busby and Ernie Howe (with an own goal) made it five before the hour mark.

Although Alan Slough managed to grab a consolation, it was still a very impressive result from Ron Fenton's side.

Here are the highlights from that game if you fancy having a look. Were you at that game? Let us know!

One of my favourite ever away days.  Craven Cottage was a great place to visit being situated right on the banks of the Thames, and the cottage in the corner of the ground was a unique feature, and the Supporters Club always ran a train excursion to away games in those days.  It was the only time I ever saw George Best play live, even though he was a stone overweight due to his drinking his utter class was unmistakable.  He had such balance and control that a drop of the shoulder could still leave players on their backside wondering which way he went.  His attitude struck me that day also, even at 0-5 he was giving his all, whereas Rodney Marsh barely broke sweat, content to just do a few party tricks.  Bobby Moore had a poor game and looked a shadow of the player who captained England to World cup victory.  Brilliant memories.

Watching those highlights made me get goosebumps. :lol:

How classy was some of the goals scored there! there was some right crackers. Obviously I am too young to recall the game but I have heard about it from various fans (including my grandfather) - I just haven't seen the highlights until now. Mick Vinter was a very good striker and had a decent record with us plus other clubs.

It was a quality team, the bones of which played together for many seasons.  Mick Vinter was on fire that day🔥 and that Steve Carter goal was pure class. Legends one and all.
