Do you remember your first time?

Everyone remembers the first professional football match they attended. For some, the most memorable part is walking up and seeing the exterior of the stadium, perhaps their team's home ground, for the very first time.

For others, it's handing in your ticket and walking through the turnstiles, while the first sight of the pitch is always mesmerising for any devotee of the beautiful game.

There are always stories associated with someone's first game; were you fulfilling a lifelong ambition when you attended? Did your father take you at a very early age? Did you go on to play for the team who you watched.

Who were the teams involved? What was the score? Who scored? Did anything legendary happen at the game? Was it a club game or an international match.
