Anyone know of selhurst being used for any other neutral matches ?

I was at that game. Swindon had the whole Arthur Wait, seats and enclosure. It was quite a sight watching the whole of that stand going mental after their goals. Think they won 2-0 on the night. Gillinghams support was wank.

I was at that Wimbledon - Leeds match. Can't believe how much I was supporting Wimbledon that night - even if it was against Leeds.

I think Dave Bassett was playing for Wimbledon in that match (as I see someone has already mentioned!)

Wasn't there an England U23 game at SP in the mid-70s? I seem to remember going along because Peter Taylor was playing.

When Mullery was there every game was Neutral

1975 v Portugal. England won 2-0 and Peter Taylor scored in the first few minutes.

Wasn't there a womens international or possibly cup final there at some point in the early to mid 2000's?

Edit: Womens cup finals were played at Selhurst between 2001 and 2003.

Swindon and Gillingham have a bitter rivalry with each other to this day.

There have been loads - perhaps the biggest was shortly after Selhurst Park opened in 1924 - we hosted a Full England International v Wales on St David's Day - Monday 1st March, 1925 - England 1 Wales 3.

I could be wrong but didn't we also play czechoslovakia at Selhurst with Taylor scoring?

cantspell 14-02-2013 07:58 PM

Crowd at Selhurst was 18 500 and was bigger than either crowds at Swindon and Gillingham in the previous games

Off topic perhaps, but in what way is that neutral? 10x nearer the Gills

Everton v Stoke F A Cup 3rd & 4th place match, 7th May 1971

Diehard 14-02-2013 08:37 PM

I was at the Gillingham Swindon game and secretly pleased that Swindon won 2-0 as I was with a mad keen Gill ( who is now mad keen Posh!!)

Also saw The Lambert and Butler 6 a side cricket tournament at Selhurst. Chris Tavare smashing sixes over the Arthur Wait...

There was a write up for that game in this seasons Stoke away programme. Game got a tiny attendance as not only was it totally pointless (who cares if you 'finish' 3rd or 4th, but also why play Everton v Stoke (both miles away) in South London???

Played on the Friday evening before the Cup Final so I assume FA thought there might be interest. Done for about 5 seasons in the early 1970s then abandoned.

I went to the Croydon v Millwall game...1-1 iirc.
