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!

THAT Gary Smith

Whilst watching the Football League Show this morning (is it me, or does Steve Claridge always sound bored ... which is rather apt as most of what he says his yawn-inducing waffle of the highest zzzzzz) I was reminded of Stevenage's upcoming FA Cup replay at Sh!te Hart Lane (apparently the 'Borough' haven't won since the original tie). As such, I suspect they'll be plenty more press articles in the coming days highlighting the (relatively new) Stevenage manager's links to both T*ttenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

To those of a certain vintage, however, Gary Smith isn't remembered at York Road for being the son of Roger, or the only football manager (so far) to have won a trophy for Stan Kroenke. Instead he is (in)famous thanks to an unsavoury incident which occurred in the late 90s, when he was wearing the green and white of Aylesbury United. I'll leave others (Murdo?) to fill-in the details that prompted perhaps THE iconic Born & Bred cover:
