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!

Fifteen to One

A little over three years ago, ahead of Fancy Dresslemania XII at Dover Athletic (who, incidentally, host Bristol Rovers in an important league game this coming Saturday), I wrote a retrospective blog post covering the KSG's annual fancy dress exploits up to that point.

With less than two weeks to go until 'FDXV: Back Where It All Began', I thought it an appropriate time to share some photos that I discovered whilst moving home before Christmas; images which were unavailable to me when writing the aforementioned post (I instead used a photo of Mr Logic presenting Willie with a wedding gift, showcasing his various costumes over the years). Anyway, please forgive the poor quality scans ...

^^^ We used a hire shop in Langley in those days. Fancy Dress and internet shopping were nowhere near as commonplace as they are now.

^^^ Macleod (C) as Bernie Clifton. I, for one, am looking forward to the Bernie/ Yaya Clifton chants, a la Kolo/ Yaya Toure, at GGL later this month.

^^^ Willie as Donald Duck.

^^^ Mr Blobby.

^^^ Aye, aye sailor!

^^^ On the terraces (with Keith, Gordon, and Steve Croxford's Dad, among others).

^^^ Donald and Blobby the last to leave at the final whistle.

^^^ Post-match beers; group shot (ft. Paddy and Seamus).

^^^ Willie and me. Honest. Costumes covering faces would soon be a thing of the past ... makes drinking more difficult, if nothing else!

^^^ A youthful-looking Willie.

^^^ Head in hands. Probably upset that he didn't get Sutton Sal's phone number! Fast forward fifteen years and he is a father and a married man ... and she, I believe, is a married lady. Time flies. Another fifteen? We'll see. Regardless, 25th April - with the Gandermonium crew to boot - should be good fun.
