I was at that infamous game in the 80s. The incident were a Town fan got out of the emergency exit of the coach and attacked a family of colourd people with a hammer. The guy who did it was a notorious fan by the name of "mad miff" from the scaffa mob. He did time for it.


there's a blast from the past. he certainly deserved his moniker back then. reformed character nowadays - believe he's got into his marathons and long distance running. please feel free to correct

It was Miffs mate a guy called Doc .
there’s loads of famous stories about the old Scaffa lot .
The one that always made me laugh was when 30 of them got arrested for a serious affray at Coventry , when the police interviewed Miffy they produced Exhibit A ,  a hockey stick .
They asked Miff if he recognised it and he swore he’d never seen it before .
Then then asked him why it had his sisters name and address stuck on it and what was it doing in Coventry 😂😂
Following football in the 80s was a totally different experience to what we have these days

I think you might be right about it been doc.

I remember the story about the hockey stick, but as I remember it it was Cambridge away. Miff got away with it. All the scaffa mob said that they all met at miffs house and any one of them could have taken it.

Was 90ish, we went up two weeks or so later - possibly we beat Bolton the week after?It was my birthday, I had a sling on and remember drinking green lager at a nearby pub. We were in the terrace behind the goal.


Pretty sure we didn’t beat Bolton that season. Or ANY season!

Remember the home game we lost 1-0, when Shaun Cunnington was denied the most obvious penalty imaginable?!

Miff was only trying to have a quiet game of pool and suddenly the locals got a little over excited by our presence.
The pub ended up looking like one of those wild West saloons !

No. The ref was one Brian Hil from Kettering, I'll never forget him for that decision which
led us having to get a result later at that famous game at Stoke.

Mind you Cunnington whilst right through on goal would have probably missed.. As good as he was
his shooting was awful at times.
