Been going for 22 years but my memory of most games over five years ago is pretty poor. A CC semi final replay at Elland Road against Halifax where the score was 4-3 sticks out but that was probably because of the p155 up! :lol:

Wembley 85 was also fantastic had a right good mickey up round London even though i was only 13 but remember the atmosfear adn excitement of going.

Best modern memory has to be the CC 2005. One of the best days of my life!


Seb, you might need to add at least 10 years to your "length of service"

For me the ones that really stick out,

Good Friday 1983, hammering rovers 21-3 in a title decider.

1988 Wigan in the last play of the game with a length of the field try finished off by Paul McAfffery. (just before the 2 semi final games)

1988, Good Friday, beating rovers 21-14 at the old CP with a patched up team (just after the 2 semi finals)

1991 Premiership final.

The promotion game at Huddersfield 31-18. Massive turn out!

Beating St's 27-26 in 2006 at KR

The Halifax semi's were shocking 160 mins without scoring a try. Can't recall seeing another 0-0. I remember a 3-2 against Warrington Greg Mackey.

My most memorable was the last minute maccaffrey try against a starstudded Wigan side.

Hunslet last game of the '79 season, ground was electric and even though I was only 10 remember the feel of the atmosphere and Chaz going over from close range :D
Cas at home when kemble & O'hara first played, memorable cos it was glorious sunshine, we scored 42 points (Cas 24 I think) O'Hara got a punctured lung or some serious injury
'82 final as I managed to get a seat with my school (£22 all in) we had a meal and sat on the wooden benches close to the touchline
'82 replay memorable for all the wrong reasons :o(
Last game of he championship winning year when all the players did the haka (well sort of did it including Bunting)
'83 CC final cos we sung the place down even though we'd lost so very dissapointed
'85 final as it was my first time to a final on my todd and got bevvied up on the train without buying a single drink...remember the Hull fans with several carrier bags full of cans getting stopped outside the ground and they were going to drink all of them rather have to lose them..lmfao
I missed all but a few games in the 90s being away from Hull
last game I saw at the Boulevard beating Wigan in 2001, gutted not being able to get down for the NZ game
Semi at Hudds against Saints in 2005, the most complete performance I think I've seen from us, the final was very emotional for me.
Saints comeback

Most memorable was probably the last game at the boulevard vs the kiwis. The chorus of old faithful from the threepenny stand when the legends came onto the pitch before the game was a memory i'll never forget. Obviously CC semi final/final in 05 are right up there as well, that semi final game was probably the best display i've ever seen from a Hull FC side. There was a game against Leeds at the boulevard that I also remember well, think we won 38-6, Jason Smith was incredible he tore Calderwood to shreds that night.

The old board get a lot of stick, but everyone involved with staging the last Boulevard game with NZ deserves credit. It was a perfect choice of opposition, and the pre-match stuff with the FC legends etc was spot-on. Also loved how the NZ team got in to the swing of things by giving each stand a Haka at the end of the game. Magical night.
