The rivalry certainly took a quantum leap during the 1976/77 season, as there were two league matches and an FA Cup tie that lasted three games, with major clashes at all 5 games.

However, many older fans feel the rivalry was already started around three years before Mullery became the Weeds boss.
I never knew the Weed had a manager called Seaweed. That is amazing and has made my year.
