Well done for your ongoing support.
For those that remember here's a one for you.
I can feel the tears running down my cheeks still from the amount of bloody linament the players would soak themselves in.
All the Best for 2013
was kit man at Sima Hall the age of 16 for 4 years-assisted Charlie Thomas, Bobby Elwell, painted the stand during close season, sat in the dugout with Elwell and the grreat Ernie Brown who was trainer at the time every game home and away and had the pleasure of being in the dressing room before all the top games in the cup and heard every word before every game. What motivators those guys were, didnt need lap top computers to show players how to kick a ball, didnt need to use bad language or abuse officials and there was NEVER an occasion when players didnt turn up even for training. The manager had full control and they were worth working with and showed great respect. How far has this club come and what do they now represent?
When that music was played when the lads ran out on to the pitch the hairs stood up on ur neck- and the stench of that linament still remains-now they cant even get players to turn up and one game seems to make a summer-what has happened to football and attitudes? I can guess what action the likes of Elwell and Thomas would have taken if the players didnt turn up and yellow livered excuses were offered-the directiors would have changed management well before now if they werent up to scratch-there is no comparison and never will be

In those days Warney Cresswell's usual seat was right in front of our box and of course DIck Kirkup had the press box just next door.
Anyway it is still teatime on 1 Jan over here so want to say to all fans, players, officials, etc best wishes for the New Year, and a fresh start hopefully from all sides with one aim, recovery, progress and success. I do miss you all!
