The trip to Oldham ended up being a 608 mile round trip from home via my brother's to the football ground and then down to our Aunt's house in Manchester.
The journey up from Neill's took four and a half hours to Oldham, and back Home from Manchester about the same.
In the end it was worth it as Oldham won and stay in League 1 another year.
This is the brick I bought in my Dad's memory. It's in the outer wall of the new stand.
