Thursday 12th of May 1983. The Oxford Cowley Car Plant are two months into production of the “Revolutionary” Austin Maestro (I think the brown, nearly blue or sort of green with light grey interior versions would have been fun but only if you’d opted for the tilting front seats, upgraded radio and tape player and locking fuel cap options!) and Abingdon Town fans on their way to Wallingford would have been listening to Spandau Ballet who were enjoying a third week at No.1 in the music chart with ‘True’
Wallingford had already played Abingdon at Home on the 18th December and beaten them 2-1
Congratulations were expressed in today’s programme for the lucky winner of the’ 50/50-Match-Day-Draw’ held at the recent Shortwood match. The winner taking home a prize of £4.50!
