Quoted from Abdul19
The summer of 2004 saw quite a lot of exotically named triallists playing for thrusting young gaffer Russell 'Slades' Slade's GTFC - but none more exciting than mysterious Malian hitman, Abdul.

It was a sunny Tuesday evening in Scarborough when I first set eyes on him. Tall and powerful, with a touch like silk - if only Paul Groves had discovered him a year earlier instead of signing 47 year old Iffy Onuora.

He had a shot over the bar and wore number 19. Ends.


What happened next?  

Abdul part ii???

Ron Rafferty was my first Town hero from season 1956-7 when he signed for Town. Then in 1958-9 when he scored a mountain of goals alongside Ralph Hunt.

A supplementary reason is that the lad who lived next door to us in those days had rhotacism, a problem saying the letter “r” properly. So Won Wafferty became a fixture in our house.


Ok, like  Wicky Wavenhill or Isaiah wankin?

I used to study on Merseyside and was Merseymariner back in the day, late 90s early 00s maybe, but then I moved back to Gy circa Santos, Mansaram, Cas and Crowe, so amended the name too.

Well I was living in Beijing when my kids love of football renewed my interest in Town. Led to the name, obviously but also a life long bone to be picked between me and the boys. They can't forgive me for the tears, the frustrations and the tiny little moments of joy. My personal moment of justification was a trip back to Cleggy one summer when my eldest was 9, we went to the club shop and the lovely lady in there was asking all the usual polite questions. When I explained we had come from China she took me and my lad through to the pitch and let him stand on it. The look of pride on his face was absolutely priceless. In my mind, Blundell Park, Beijing and my kids are all fused together forever.
