It can’t be twelve years today since Rodney McAree’s wonderful volley at Carlisle set us on the way to promotion from Division Three.
Here are the goals from that famous day, which also brings to mind Micky Adams’ fine half-time team talk when we were a goal down at the break. ‘Does anyone in this dressing room think we can’t win this game?’ Watch out for a typical poacher’s finish from Mick Conroy and, of course, the joyful celebrations after McAree’s sweet strike. By the way, the man who scored for Carlisle? Rory Delap – whose booming throws are still to grace the Cottage this season.
