IMPORTANT: now I've got your attention I just want to get my excuses in before you start looking at this content. Two problems: first, the poor light of an evening game means that auto-exposures are long exposures, so the photos are inevitably going to be blurred with all the movement going on. And other photos have been captured from TV coverage (I try not to do that now, but hey, this is special!), which means that the resolution of the resulting still-image is bound to be poor. Secondly, the video and audio pieces here are extra long because they were just too good to cut! So that means I've had to be quite severe in compressing the files, hence not the best of quality, especially the audio. There, excuses done, but on the other hand the content is superb, so just think of the lack of quality as adding to the atmosphere!  Special thanks to Gordon Sparks for stunning radio; top coverage from a top man. And thanks to Tom Jarratt and James Mead (some of the photos are theirs), and to the BBC and Carlton Westcountry (some stills taken from their news reports). Finally, a big thank you to Tim Roughton for his video footage. I saw Tim with his camcorder on the pitch. Not knowing him I said who I was and he immediately handed over the tape for me to use! No questions asked, no second thought. That's what I call trust, that's what it is to be Green!

Thanks to all concerned (see above).


Much bigger files than normal because this is just too good to miss! If you can only spare a few minutes, click on the 'brief all-in-one' link. But much better, find a half an hour or so, sit yourself down with your favourite drink and click on each in turn. It doesn't get much better than this, so enjoy!

(and for an amusing moment, listen out for Coggo's interview)


Enter the gladiators





The final whistle and all the celebrations

Finally, acknowledgements. How about sending them a message?

A real treat this, 'amateur' video footage from the stand and pitch gives a real taste of the atmosphere and excitement. Big thanks to Tim Roughton.

Warning: this is a large file (3300K) so will take around 15 minutes to download on a 56Kb line, but for nearly 2 minutes of raw celebration it's worth the wait)
