I had the pleasure of being a supplier to this real old school gentleman and his shop when I was in sales. Always gave me an order and often regaled me of his time running the line and refereeing games. He did run the line at the county ground on a number of occasions and as the article says not just in this country. I hope he has a happy and healthy retirement.

This is a quote from a rep I know who used to also call on this lovely bloke.

‘Yes I always used to chat to him about his officiating. He once ran the line at a testimonial at Ninian Park and I spent the game abusing him........ he never knew it was me ! !’  🤣🤣 Well what do you expect from a Cardiff supporter?

What a great little article, cheers for sharing. I've always tried, when possible, to support the little guy when it comes to shops so it's pretty heart warming to read he lasted 42 years. I also loved this bit...........

I still love my football but I don’t really follow the Premiership. I like the smaller teams and am looking forward to watching more matches when it finally resumes,” added Martin.

He sounds like a legend!

He is a lovely gentleman. Would also come to trade shows with an order to get some extra discount and look for new products to stock.

Jamaican goat curry and a generic Caribbean coconut rice and beans for supper tonight, yum, yum. Might wash it down with some 7.5% Guinness’s. Not warm enough for my home made cider funnily enough.

Should be fine. The curry has two deseeded scotch bonnets and the rice two deseeded thin red ones from last years greenhouse crop. Leave the seeds in and you’d be not far off the mark TBF.

Not one of those foods you can say tastes just like chicken. Similar to lamb.

Here is the recipe for both dishes.

https://www.africanbites.com/jamaican-curry-goat/

https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/coconut_rice_and_beans/

With the goat curry I added a can of coconut milk, used two green scotch bonnets that were in the fridge (deseeded) and omitted the potatoes, the coconut replaces that with a creamier texture without the starch and for the bouillon I used two chicken oxo stock cubes.

The rice I didn’t have any more scotch bonnets so two deseeded red chillies from last years greenhouse crop but frozen whole just as good. Oh and two cans of kidney beans cause I like them. I will squeeze the lime over the rice when I take it to the table.

Thanks for this.  Yeah, goat is underappreciated and underused.

Hell no. However, I’m having a second shot as this was bought at Christmas and hardly touched so it would be rude not to make sure it has not gone over.
