Is there a video of him 'rowing' his stretcher off the pitch kicking about anywhere online?
...one of my all-time abiding memories from supporting the lads. Pure class!
That and a reserve game against Blackburn at Roker when he threatened to kick some big defender into the Main Stand!!
I was trying to explain that to my son just yesterday, I was on about the really hard men of football. I'd love to see a video of it too.
a clip of this would be fantastic like (this moment was basically how i come up wif my name on here!)
...remember as a kid I used to always see him walking his dogs in Burnmoor & me not plucking up the courage to speak to him:-(
I used to see him regularly, he's an outreach support worker for a company called stonham, I spent some time living in a hostel & he was in & out of there quite a bit, I didn't get much of a chance to speak to him myself, apart from 'alright' and stuff, but from what I heard off people who had regular contact with him he's sound as a pound & good at his job so... he looks in top form like.
the canoe was class.
i remember in the play-off semi when he didn't half clatter little billy askew. iirc they were both from the same street, went to the same school etc.
wasn't he one of the ones dancing on a car roof at exeter as well?
I don't need a video. I was there. And it cost me my relationship.
I was in the Fulwell and couldn't believe what I was seeing. He was iirc on the left hand side near the CP by the Roker and after a few feet just sat up and started rowing. I can still picture it happening in my head
he pleaded guilty but by all accounts took the rap for some young lad
My sentiments, exactly
Rumour has it he used to eat those little blocks found in urinals
Some say his the next stig.
My favourite all time cult hero at the club wasn't it Dennis Smith that signed him in the 3rd division and he played for us in the 1st division.
Him rowing off the pitch was class that and the bastard referee that disallowed his goal against Millwall.
Both from Lumley, not the same street but they grew up together, both went to Sacriston Senior school.
By chance I was on the same train as John when he went to Exeter court, he told me he took the rap for quite a few of them, thats the kind of lad he was, also probably one of the hardest lads in the fight I have ever seen, he was a true hard lad but sound as a pound. He had a twin brother, he was an excellent goalkeeper, signed for Spurs at 16, he was killed in a car crash 2 yeras later, shocking time that like.
Aye - Williams - apparently Kaysie was eating the blue things from the urinals that night
