    My sister got married during the football season – never a sensible decision. When Ed and I left the church we were directed to one of the cars taking people to the reception. “we’re going with Derek” we said and crossed the road to the car waiting there, which promptly headed off to Roker.

    Were we missed at the reception? Of course not, we were only three hours late when we got there

    Back in the mists of time (16 Feb 80 if StatCat is to be believed) I was part of a group of London Branch members heading to Preston Away. Due to problems (derailment or broken down train) we rolled into some godforsaken station at 2pm still some 60 miles from our destination. Myself and 2 others decided a taxi would get us there in time. The female taxi driver was getting more nervous as each minute passed and decided to “break down” on the motorway. We disembarked and somehow managed to flag down a passing black cab, offering all sorts of financial inducements if he could get us there tout suite. After a hair raising journey we arrived at Deepale just as the half time whistle went (1-0) down. We eventually lost 2-1. On arrival back at Preston station we discovered the London Branch train had just arrived, only to be greeted by the news there would be no trains back until the early hours. More beer was supped naturally. We arrived at Euston at noon on Sunday, had a few pints and went to see the luscious Bo Derek in “10”. A 36 hour expedition.
