Retro Rovers Video – Hartlepool v Doncaster Rovers Feb 20th 1996

hartlepool-v-doncaster-rovers-1996This week takes us back to 1996 and Rovers are in the promotion hunt as the season nears its business end.  A bit of a wobble from the start of Feb sees Rovers likely to drop out of the race, though this crucial win at Hartlepool keeps us in contention…. for a while.  1 win from the next 12 means we missed out, as was usually the case during the 90’s.

Still worth a look as this clip provides a glimpse of Gary Brabin wading around midfield, Graeme Jones up front and a great ‘tackle’ from ‘keeper Perry Suckling.

The highlights revolve around Colin Cramb, with the scot rattling the woodwork before typically ‘winning’ the penalty, which he then converts, to win the game 1-0.  It is great to see Cramby in action again.
