There is a strange man who sits and reads the paper all match. Now I know they are never the most entertaining of matches but scrutinising the TV supplement for an entire half is going that step too far.Though a rather amusing incident happened at the
West Auckland match. Halfway through the second half the ref got injured and could not continue. One of his linesmen had to take over and our club secretary; a short, tubby man who could not be described as being in the peak of physical fitness had to take over the other line, much to the disgust of the other manager who thought it was all a fix. The new ‘ref’ was terrible of course and got stick from everyone, bottled out of making decisions and got everyone wound up so that there were tackles flying in all over the place. If our captain Brian Rowe had been playing (the Roy Keane of the Northern League) there would have been carnage. All very entertaining of course… As the club photographer ran round trying to get pictures of the club secretaries moment of fame.
