Title: Jacko's Scooter
Post by: Ardiles on Friday, November 29, 2019, 11:09:08
This needs a thread of its own.  A lovely, heart-warming story about a great man being shown a bit of love by his fellow Swindon supporters.

Couldn't have happened to a more decent, thoughtful chap.  And (ex-)London Reds legend.

Good old Jacko. I'd forgotten that was his individual chant. I was looking out for his new wheels in the Mansfield highlights but didn't spot them. I see he hasn't got the scooter yet - hopefully due to the red & white custom paint job it's having done on it.

COMT!

Yeah he's been struggling for years. I look forward to getting my toes run over repeatedly.

Very nice story👍... I'm pretty sure that in true local rag fashion though, they're about 3 years over with his age...he's not 64...
