  1. An outstanding appointment. City through and through and a thoroughly nice bloke too. I wish him all the best, and I hope his skin is thick enough to deal with some of the nonsense that will be coming his way soon.
  2. Yes we did. A team of volunteers who reported to me. They got a match ticket in return for helping out before games. They were brilliant: helping disabled fans, welcoming home and away fans, pointing people in the right direction of it was their first visit to AG. . I always saw them as extra SLOs and they did a great job.
  3. "Just a shame the club appear in the main not to have been so proactive now as set against 2004- you and Sexstone in particular." I didn't actually work for the Club in 2004, I was just a concerned fan.
  4. On balance I think the Police do a great job of policing football, often in very difficult situations. However the behaviour of certain officers at Walsall in 2004 was inexcusable, and I was glad that Colin took up the fans case following complaints made by myself and other supporters (including a serving Police officer, just as in the recent case) following that game. Full marks to the SC&T for taking up the case this time, and for their vigilance in holding the WMP to account for what sounded like an excessive abuse of power. Julie H suggests elsewhere in this thread that this has led to a change in the way in which the WMP police football matches. Let's hope so anyway.

    Stadium tours

    Steve contracted Parkinson's unfortunately. I took over the tours when he was no longer well enough to do them.

    Stadium tours

    I used to enjoy doing the tours. There was some discussion over the summer about me running them again, but not sure where they are up to with that at the moment.
  7. That is terribly sad news. I got to know Beezer well during my time as SLO. A genuinely lovely, kind man. I used to call into the SC&T bar as part of my pre-game matchday rounds, and even though he knew I was 'on duty', he was always trying to buy me a pint. I'll raise a glass to him tonight. Please let me know about the funeral arrangements Marie.
  8. Bring back Dave Llo ..... on second thoughts, no. Good luck in your new role Matt, and good luck to your successor.
  9. Certainly did, and he remains a good friend. In fact we're working on something together at the moment.
  10. Here's my Take That claim to fame. Back in the early 90s, when I was very nearly almost famous for playing a stupid Norman soldier on the kids show Maid Marian and her Merry Men, some of the cast did a guest appearance on a TV show called Hangar 17, which was a sort of variety show for kids. As I recall, we were in a showbiz quiz against a team from East Enders. Other guests on the show were Take That. I'd never heard of them, but my 13 year old niece begged me to get their autographs. They were in the dressing room over the corridor and only too happy to oblige. Nice lads. There was something about the reaction they got in the studio that day that made me think they might do well for a year or two
  11. When I was SLO we had a scheme in place where disabled supporters could park at Ashton Park school and then use a free shuttle minibus to the ground. I think that's still going. Gareth Torpey in the Supporter Services team looks after disabled supporters, and he should definitely be your first port of call.
