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!

Away Day Diary: Gosport Borough 0-2 Maidenhead United (07/09/13)

^^^ The sombrero wasn't soggy, unfortunately.

^^^ Macleod (M) longs to be treated like a queen.

^^^ Bar open! Anyone for a can of Cosmo?

^^^ V for Victory. Apt.

^^^ The Hard Interchange? Sounds painful.

^^^ Rekorderlig (Wild Berries flavour) on tap in the Ship Anson.

^^^ On the ferry, bound for Gosport.

^^^ Meet with the stragglers in the Castle Tavern. Yellow 'CAUTION' sign the result of Macleod (M) upending a full pint of Kronenbourg (not his).

^^^ In the ground. Yet more uncovered ends. Nicer than Whitehawk, though, IMO.

^^^ This lady steward (wife of the Chairman?) was very reasonable. I would be standing alongside her, incidentally, as the final whistle sounded.

^^^ Match action. Michael 'Devon' Malcolm missed an absolute sitter, then Reece Tison-Lascaris put the Magpies ahead, either side of this photo being taken.

^^^ Second half.

^^^ Discussing hair care tips?

^^^ Known in the industry as a 'goal'.

^^^ Trainer on the pitch! Soon to be trainer out of the ground! The Gosport keeper (NOT Mel Capleton, despite allegations to the contrary) can certainly flick a trainer a long way with his foot.

^^^ I'm not normally one for sitting on the fence, but last Saturday was an exception.

^^^ Ooops! My favourite pair of jeans as well. Safety pins previously holding together the Union flag would (eventually) come to the rescue.

^^^ Walk in the park.

^^^ Outside the Star.

^^^ Thumbs up.
