Some of my Old Programes

Strangely enough, my only visit to Fulham nick, and then to Horseferry Road was following an FA Cup match at Fulham on a day when we didn't have a game. I think they were playing Leicester or one of the Sheffield teams. Anyway, we were up the away end and got bored so walked out, intending to go up the other end. Outside the ground, we ran into another mob of Chelsea who were being escorted away from Craven Cottage by the old bill, and they of course wanted to lump us all together. Muggins here argued the toss. "You're going with that lot". said the old bill. "I'm f**king not" said I, "they're f**k all to do with me." "Ok clever f**ker, you're nicked." Obstructing the Old Bill.

Oh yes. Every home game we had a battle of wits. Me trying to get into the North Stand, him trying and usually succeeding in keeping me out. The bloke just didn't like the look of me. I'd turn up with a girl, he'd let her in, and he'd tell me to f**k off. I'd see people I knew, nodding to me, calling to me and he'd let them in while telling me I should know by now I wasn't going in and that was that. Many a time I as North Stand up the Shed and it was all down to that bar steward.

 

There was another sergeant up Euston, known as the Penguin but not to his face. Fat bar steward, his not so secret weapon was his massive gut. He'd waddle towards you looking menacing but you'd stand your ground. He'd flex that gut of his - BOING - and knock you flying.

I used to move around a bit, but mostly I lived around West London/Middlesex way. Bilko had a bit of an accent, West Country if I remember rightly.

Shane? Got to be the same bloke. If it is, I'm sorry to hear that. How did he die, any idea?

 

There was a regular coach leaving from Greenford Hall, which I think was run by Charlie H from Southall, and another couple of coaches from Hayes. Jezz with curly hair might ring a bell. And you must have known Ginger from Hounslow.

Same as me mate. I can close my eyes, see the bloke's face - with and without the afro, but until it finally clicked, I couldn't remember his name to save my life.

I also remember sneaking into the North Stand through the flats on Fulham Road, then through the gap in the fence and up the hill. Nothing to do with being a tight bar steward, that was Bilko's fault for not letting me get in through the turnstiles. I'd often dive straight for the queue for the bovril hut to make it look as if I'd been hanging around for a while.

Well, this is awkward!

The Shed End Forum relies on revenue to pay for hosting and upgrades. While we try to keep adverts as unobtrusive as possible without pop ups, we need to run ad's to make sure we can stay online and continue to keep the forum up, as over the years costs have become very high.

Could you please allow adverts on this domain by switching it off. Some of the advert banners can actually be closed to avoid interferance of your experience on The Shed End.

Cheers now!

Sure, I've got it!
