Did You Know That?

Today we have another of our new, occasional, columns from Stephen Byrne, who believes that the eleven minutes between the own goal scored by Portsmouth’s Craig MacGillivray at the end of the last Gas home game, and the one scored by Rochdale’s Eoghan O’Connell last Saturday at the Spotland Stadium is the shortest time between two own goals scored in Rovers’ favour.

Two Carlisle players scored for Rovers 25 minutes apart in 2005/06 (Danny Livesey, 57 minutes, and Zigor Aranalde, 82 minutes) and two Warmley players (George Gay and Edwin Wilmot) conceded own goals when Rovers drew 3-3 there in Oct 1889.

We have a photo related to the Carlisle match but not one from Warmley!  Tut tut.

Stephen can’t find anything else close to this, but is quite prepared to be proved wrong.  Answers on a postcard please…
