It is indeed. Cup semi-finals were held at neutral venues in those days.

Like most keepers Mick had a habit of hanging off the crossbar as shots were going over. Trouble was - unlike St Mels Park where they were metal - ours were wood and promptly snapped close to the corner. Harps were hammering them so he climbed up the net from the back and bounced on the bar until it broke again. If you look closely at the early shot of the stand you can see the old commentary box/stadium announcers hut on the right - as in "is there a carpenter in the ground?".
