    I visited Highbury in January 1953 to see Doncaster Rovers lose to the Gunners 4-0 in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup.
    It was before it's time as grounds go. As my Dad knew the Rovers manager I got to
    have a look round the changing rooms. I remember there seemed to be marble floors
    everywhere and the dressing rooms had under floor heating.!

    Fantastic experience for a young lad just the wrong result unfortunately.
    Remember also that the programme that day was printed on good quality shiny paper
    whereas Doncaster's were usually printed in black and white on poor quality flimsy paper
    like the one shown above.
