 I was brought up with the axiom...never trust an STFC chairman, and nothing has ever come close to undermining the proposition.

 On the surface they could seem OK...Wilf Castle, for example, was fine purveyor of lardy cake and brown bread, similarly Eric Lane's chitterlings and caul were of a high standard.  Nevertheless it never stopped the TE wanting Wilf to be sent as Britain's representative at the Vietnam War.

 No way in the world would I have bought a used car from Maurice Earle...or painting and decorating from Brian Hillier.

 Rikki Hunt's Kestrel companies.... Roll Eyes

 Cliff Puffett's multi-agg I suppose might have been OK for a bag of sand and gravel.

 The exception to the rule would be Cecil Green...who like honest Bri had a painting and decorating co, but was a man who I've never heard a bad word spoken against.

 Carson...I loathed since Question of Sport.  Andrew Fitton promised much, but managed the ignominy of 2 defeats to non league sides on his watch, added to the worst Div 3 side in 50 years.

 Just watch when Wray ceases to be interim chairman.  Smiley

Just to bump this rather than start a new thread has Spearman been listed as Honorary President for a long time, must confess never noticed before?

Not sure how long he has had that role but I almost always see him at games when I can get there, home and away, going round pre match meeting and greeting Town fans, always comes accross as a nice bloke.

It's a grand old team to play for, It's a grand old team to see, And if you know your history, It's enough to make your heart go whoa-oh, We don't care what the other teams say, What the hell do we care, For we only know that there's gonna be a show, And the Swindon Town will be there....
