  2. this is one of the problem with social media it lets cowards throw mud from the safety of their computer screens (or exercise their right to freedom of speech which ever way you view it) I cant see Dan walker taking this on with out checking it out first ,Remember Mr Foulds didn't seek any attention it found him, I was honoured to attend the fly past,
  3. Last week spent a very pleasant evening at Staveley Minors Welfare in the presence of Tony Currie and a bloke called Mel Sterland who played for somebody else, went with my forty four year old son (hes a Chesterfield supporter but his mum loves him lol) what a great night, it was a Q&A session and steel city quiz plus comedian, Got to shake the great mans hand also got a signed photo made me feel like a teenager again. Brought back memories of happy days stood on the kop, singing your heart out ,kicking every ball, making every tackle, living the dream.
  4. don't know if this has been covered before, but here goes, can you remember when the green up used to print the football results and on the inside they would do a run down on the local teams and each one would have a picture of the club mascot , there was I guy who used to make them and he would carve them with a pen knife my late Dad though not into football got me one when I was about 8 which ive stll got ,I know the mascot changed now but this is the original Bertie Blade ( it had a ciggy its mouth when first made and the scarf was knitted by my late Mother) Also if my memory serves me right the star had a mobile printing van and you could get a copy on your way home (bet they sold more on a winning day)
