Extract from the Andy Lochhead interview…

FOX: You are still remembered by Leicester fans for the goal you scored at Anfield in a fifth round replay during that Cup run… do you remember much about it?

AL: A bit, it was a header. I was up against Ron Yeats that night. I recall it going past Tommy Lawrence, the Flying Pig they called him. Don’t bother going for it Tommy, it’s past you.

AY: There are so many parallels with my career here… scoring two goals on your debut, instructions to hit the keeper, and I scored at Anfield too, though unfortunately it was at the wrong end.

FOX: The FA Cup seemed to mean more to the players back then than it does now.

AL: I remember sitting in a pub in Burnley, with my team-mate Willie Irvine, the year before watching the 1968 FA Cup Final West Brom v Everton, the one when Jeff Astle scored. I turned to Willie and said: “What a wonderful experience it must be to walk out of that tunnel behind the goal and know you are playing in the FA Cup Final.”
Twelve months later there I was doing just that and I was right, it was a magnificent experience.
It was the only game in my career when I sat there and cried in the changing rooms afterwards – and not just because of my miss. It was such an occasion, right from the moment we stepped off the coach,  and I really felt for all our supporters.

FOX: Did Princess Anne say anything to you?

AL: No, no really, not that I can remember…

AY: Come on Andy, make something up!

AL: Oh okay, she said “What are you doing after Andy?”
