Then one bloke stood in the middle of them and they all crowded around. They looked very menacing. The bloke in the middle then started dishing out tickets and they all wandered off in smaller groups. It took me a while to work it out ( I think I am right)....was it armed forces ticket day today?
there's loads of tickets for troops knocking about for just about every game. I may even take advantage meself later on in the season. I'm a Falklands veteran you know!
Fantastic gesture from the club like, there's more for our games than anyone elses (i've checked), and I know from experience that it's a great thing to get your picture taken somewhere wild and wooly with your red and white stripes on.
