In August 2010 three Maidenhead United fans were banned from attending home games, by a kangaroo court, for crimes they didn't commit.
These men promptly encountered a jobsworth security blockade, and so escaped to the non-league underground.
Today, still stigmatised by the MUFC Ltd hierarchy, they survive as supporters of fancy.
If you enjoy a train away day - and if you can find them - then maybe you can share a drink with ... the K-team!

Would you believe the word of an Ebbsfleet United steward?

Interesting thread on the Conf South forum earlier this week, following a bizarre post on the Thurrock forum by EUFC Chairman Phil Sonsara (who has yet to respond to several recent letters, addressed directly to him, from individuals and also from Maidenhead United Supporters Association), encouraging Thurrock fans to attend the Ebbsfleet home game on the Saturday later this month when the Essex side are due to be playing against Maidenhead United FC Ltd at York Road.

Thought I'd highlight some of the subsequent comments concerning other supporters' experiences of the Stonebridge Road stewards this season - 

"spot on about the Ebbsfleet stewards. More interested in their ejection numbers then actually doing their jobs fairly. I wonder if they are on commission for every away fan ejected?" ~ Grassbank72

"We had five fans there and it's fair to say the stewards were pricks" ~ seanwsm

"It's ironic that the chairman wants people in the ground and the stewards don't" ~ Kanu's Nan

Seems as if we aren't the only ones to find them to be complete tossers, then??

PS > Note that, unlike the Head Steward (one S. Bath), I can spell 'Ebbsfleet' correctly.
