You could well be right. My old Dad used to work as ground staff many years ago including on turnstiles and later, on the seats on the Douglas stand. He would have worked there for free , such was his love for the club which lasted his whole lifetime. So he might have just seen him in training ? IIRC, a novelty he said.

We have.

There have been many attempts to promote the game over there. For example ; I also recall a promotional game between us and Wire in IIRC Milwaukee, and where there was a bout of fisticuffs on the field between Ellery Hanley and Les Boyd in 1989.

Trying to promote over there with American football and baseball is like our constant problem here trying to eclipse football.

I hope they succeed and build.

Try the book "No helmets required".
