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!

Links We Like #1

The above link was posted on the AFC Conference South forum earlier in the week. Plenty of decent snaps, including some of York Road, Maidenhead and Joke Tree Road, Marlow (with some interesting recollections re the latter, among the comments on the thread, where I saw the original link)

I especially like the “Not A Crowded Stand” Marlow FC photo, and also the one showing some typically dozy-looking Basingrad fans, complete with noddy hanky-flag (which is back-to-front!)

Furthermore, the stand at Gosport Borough looks good, while the backdrop to Arundel FC is rather spectacular.

Does it sound like we might be turning into ground hoppers?! 

No, we're not ground hoppers. We don't dress like them, we don't drink like them, and we don't associate with them. 

That said, there is a fine line. I think we remain the right side of it, though, thankfully! :-)

*** Now, having said all that (!), I strongly recommend that terrace nostalgists check out the 'footballgroundguide' channel on You Tube. Some amazing short videos of grounds from the late 70s/early 80s. The Valley, in particular, looks immense. I, of course, also like the Eastville Stadium one. Anyway, enjoy! 

*** Macleod (M) saw this video on WACCOE. He described it to me as  quite amusing and worth a watch. I actually think the bloke who made it is a border-line genius, especially considering he's a Spurs fan!
