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!

Stripes is the pits

Went to York Road at the weekend; my first home game of the calendar year. Enjoyed the day, albeit the football was as bad as the score line was predictable (Craig actually mentioned it had ‘0-0 written all over it’, just minutes before Boreham Wood scored). 

CBA to write anything about the game, on here, in addition to my post on the Conference South forum. I will, however, comment on my visit to Stripes at HT. Thumbs up re the Roasted Nuts; lovely drop and about time the fans had something decent to drink in there. Disappointed not to have spotted the ‘Thank You’ certificate from Parkinson’s UK, though, and had to laugh at the following ...

^^^ 543 league games for Maidenhead United (more than anyone else), over an 11 year period, and at least one person couldn’t get this name right!

^^^ Correct spelling, as per the (still jumbled) Hall of Fame.

^^^ ‘How long do you give it?’ I asked, rhetorically, three years ago (when the above photo was taken). TBF, it lasted (much) longer than I thought it would! Seriously, though, we raised more than £1200 – and generated good publiciteh for the cloob – so I would think it right and proper if the certificate made a reappearance.
