BELOW DAVID WHITE RECOUNTS HIS FULL HOME DEBUT
When we re-emerged after the interval I jogged over to assume my position in front of the Kippax Stand and was given a rousing reception by the Blues’ faithful. I thought my chest was going to burst, so proud did I feel.Sadly though, my teammates and I were unable to reward our fans with a win that day, having been shifted inside to accomodate yours truly, Robert Hopkins had bagged our solitary goal, only for us to succumb 2-1. Naturally I was disappointed with the result but, from my own perspective, my big debut couldn’t have gone any better. I celebrated in Blackpool, where dad’s firm were staging their annual work do.
