Thats sad to hear.

I used to have a teacher at Harold Street called Steve Plowes. Was it him?


Not sure. He taught me at Clee but wasn't there long so quite possibly..


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

SWWF was one of the reasons I kept returning as an exile. Steve could make a serious point in a funny or ironic way . A fine Mariner.

Sad news. Played hockey with him in the 70’s. remember him putting his Morris minor in a ditch down cheapside and we had to haul it out. His greatest contribution to his honour was when he asked the umpire to re-arrange these  words into a well known phrase or saying “off fu*k “. The umpires laughed too much to send him off . Great character , sad loss

He taught English, at the time was a good looking lad with dark curly hair. The girls told me he was good looking I hasten to add.

I've just heard the very sad news that Steve Plowes one of the original contributors to "Sing When We're Fishing" has passed away.
Steve was a great Town fan long exiled to the Blackpool coast blessed with a brilliant sense of (often gallows) humour.

R.I.P. Steve.


Very sad news.  I have to thank Steve for publishing my first ever article in swwf when I was a teen in the early 90s. A piece about  how badly our players did when we sold them. He didn't just print it, he gave it a full page and encouraged me to do more, and I thank him for that.  

Swwf was a great publication and I remember an associated email list for exiles soon after and it makes me feel ancient 😉

Rip 😐

Always used to buy a copy of SWWF on my in. Knew him slightly through Rob McIlveen who also contributed to that very fine and very funny 'zine. Definitely Town through and through. RIP Steve.

In reply to my own earlier posts it is indeed the Steve Plowes who taught at Harold Street circa 1969.

If you google his name there is a picture of him supposing to be at Edward St. school with the pupils.

They are my Harold Street urchins though - perhaps we went there whilst some work was done on Harold St. - I cannot quite remember. I am certainly on there with my old chums - I can remember about half the names.

So sad to hear of his passing.

Jimmy Lumby is on the photo - anybody remember him as a former Town player?
