PETER JACKSON'S most memorable moment with Town, quite understandably, came as manager at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff just a few weeks ago when his team clinched promotion in the play-off final.
But going back to his playing career - he was a commanding centre-back who wore his heart on his sleeve - Jackson always remembers a great night at the old Leeds Road ground.
"It was the area final of the Autoglass Trophy and the prize over two legs was a place in the Wembley final," he said.
"It was a massive game for us because we hadn't done all that well in the League and the club hadn't been to Wembley in over 50 years.
"We knew we needed to turn in a good performance to give us a platform for the second leg up at Brunton Park and we played really well.
"The atmosphere was excellent and I scored the opening goal in a 4-1 win.
"There was a tremendous celebration at the end - I always thought the atmosphere at night games was better at Leeds Road, just like now at the McAlpine - and even though we had a few scares up at Carlisle in the second leg and lost 2-0, we went through to Wembley."
It proved to be Jackson's third last start for the club and, while he led the team out at Wembley, he was a substitute and didn't get onto the field for the 1-1 draw against Swansea City (Town lost 3-1 in a penalty shoot-out).
"The other games I remember as a player, really, are my Football League debut with Bradford City and my first game for Newcastle United in what is now the Premiership," added Jackson.
"For Bradford, I was only 17 and played down at Hereford United. I had to mark Bobby Gould and we lost 2-0.
"Strangely enough, it was George Mulhall who gave me my debut and George who was manager when I played my last ever competitive game for Halifax in the Conference before I became Town manager.
"At Newcastle, my debut was away against Villa in front of 40,000 and our team included Paul Gascoigne and Peter Beardsley. I think that was the moment I finally `arrived'!"
