TODAYS VISITORS TO BOUNDARYPARK

1978 undoubtedly the most successful season in the club's history when they won their first ever League Championship and manager, Brian Clough, became only the second manager in English football to take

a side to the Championship in its first season after gaining promotion from the Second Division. The season was made even more memorable by the winning of the Football League Cup with a side weakened by the ineligibility of several players who were "Cup-tied". Young England goalkeeper Chris Woods received the Man of the Match Award for the 0-0 draw at Wembley against Liverpool and then went on to star again in the replay at Old Trafford when they eventually won 14 following a John Robertson penalty. This was the first time

a club has accomplished the feat of winning

both the Championship and the League Cup' in one season. they also reached the quarter finals of the F.A. Cup. The Championship was won by 7 clear points, giving a total of 64 points, and they scored 69 goals whilst conceding only 24, the latter equalling the record held by Liverpool. They were undefeated in their last 26 games and lost only 3 throughout the season. Several players gained Inter- national honours. Peter Shilton and Tony Woodcock for England. Tony also gained Under 21 honours. Viv Anderson and David Needham appeared in the England 'B' team and Chris Woods and Steve Burke at Youth team level. Three players were selected to play for Scotland in the World Cup, John Robertson, Archie Gemmill and Kenny Burns. Martin O'Neill yet again played for Northern Ireland. Nearly all the game's individual awards were gained by their players. Kenny Burns won the Sportwriters "Footballer of the Yeaf' and the Midland Sportwriters "Player of the Year" awards. Peter Shilton was selected the P.F.A. "Player of the Year" and Tony Woodcock took the "Young Player of the Year" award from the same body. After gaining a record number of four "Manager of the Month" awards from Bells

Whisky, Brian Clough was finally selected "Manager of the Year". John Robertson won the A.T.V. Star Soccer "Goal of the Season" award and Tony Woodcock won

the First Division Managers award for the "Player of the Year." Peter Withe ended the season with 19 . League and Cup goals as the club's leading scorer, and Frank Clark delighted everyone by scohng his first ever League goal at Ipswich in 485 outings1 PETER SHILTON: Their record signing, this superb professional cost them more ' than E% million when signed from Stoke City in September 1977. Peter was obviously a major factor in their League championship triumph, and is regarded by Messrs. Clough and Taylor as the best 'keeper in the world. An England International on 25 occasions, he conceded just 18 goals in 37 League outings for them last season -a tremendous record. His other former club is Leicester City - his local team -and he succeeded the one and only Gordon Banks in their goal before eventually following his mentor's footsteps to Stoke City.
