Diary Dates for the 2018-2019 Season

A summary of our meeting held on 2nd August, 2018.

Our first meeting of the new season was our AGM and minutes from that meeting will be available elsewhere.

The meeting began with the invitation for members to renew their membership. Renewal forms had been prepared for every member and given the recent changes to data protection (GDPR) they were all invited to sign their acceptance of our use of their email/telephone contact details. If any member chose not to do so we would not be able to communicate with them other than via the website. Members signed their forms, paid their dues and booked their places on the forthcoming Autumn Outings.

Our guest speaker had no links with football – that was a break in tradition! Sue Hickson-Marsey introduced herself as a “Storm Tossed Lady” and shared her fascinating story. She was the first woman to become a Humber Pilot. Starting as a deck hand, the first female crew member, she eventually became coxswain of the Pilot Launch working on one of the most difficult rivers in the world. The launch takes Humber Pilots to incoming ships before they navigate their way up the river and collects them on their return – in any weather condition. Transferring from launch to ship is one of the most hazardous tasks and with 30,000 ship movements in the Humber every year they have their work cut out. Originally based at Spurn Point they are now operating out of Grimsby – 3 launches working round the clock. Sue had seen adverts for deckhands and over 1000 people enquired but she was successful. Her appointment caused plenty of media interest but she coped!

Her first real challenge was sea-sickness! She was too proud to walk away after all the publicity and tried every possible remedy including ‘old wives legends’. One piece of advice was to eat Bread & Jam before going on board – when she later asked for a reason why she was told, “simple, it tastes just as good when it comes back!” Twenty three years later she has the experience that no one can challenge but still receives anxious glances from skippers when they are asked to hand control over to her!Sue is a legend at the Humber Pilots but her story goes further. When Hornsea lost their lifeboat there were many anxious concerns in the resort. Any incident off the shore would see a lifeboat coming out of Bridlington or Withernsea and a crucial delay of up to 30 minutes. That could be too late to rescue a child drifting out on an inflatable. They needed their own Rescue Inflatable and a volunteer crew ready to launch into action. £20k was raised locally and the Hornsea Inshore Rescue had come into being – with Sue becoming one of the volunteer crew. Their first call out was to rescue not a child but some 60 year old ladies who had drifted out on their inflatable! Later they were able to save a very grateful & cheerful man and bring him safely back to shore – only for his wife to storm up and give him what for! He turned to Sue and said “you should have left me out there!”Sue was a fantastic speaker and the HIR benefits from her energy and enthusiasm. They have no central funding, nothing from the RNLI and must raise all the costs themselves. The Senior Tigers are making a special Summer Outing on Thursday, 23rd August, when Sue will show us round the HQ in Hornsea, share the story and see that we are fed with local fish ‘n chips.

Other business from our August meeting: David, our Chair, informed the members present that the football club had once again offered to provide a free buffet luncheon prior to our September meeting. This is wonderful news for us and very much appreciated. It means that we need to come a little earlier for the meeting on September 6th. The doors will open at 12.30 and the buffet will start at 1.00 pm.

Sue Kemp was invited to speak in memory of a former member, Graham Newdick. Graham, who died in December 2016, had been a stalwart of the Tigers, regular away match attender, a Senior Tiger and the man behind the wonderful Withernsea Official Supporters Club. There were so many memories of players visiting WOSC meetings over the years thanks to Graham. The WOSC had now closed and their closing funds, £630, were given in his memory to a local kids football club and a plaque placed in the changing rooms at Patrington AFC.

Rob Wilson gave an update on the Photo Gallery Site. Unfortunately the projector failed and Rob was unable to show members where they were up to. He mentioned that there were now between 700/800 photos from matches in the 1950/60’s to look up. The current emphasis is on providing team photos. 162 have recently been added and they have an interactive opportunity for members. Altogether there are some 3200 faces that need identifying so when someone scrolls over the pictures each face will give the opportunity for people to identify the player. Rob, as Moderator, would receive contributions and make suitable amendments.

Tony Conway provided an update on the Memorabilia Gallery. It was clearly a bigger task than originally anticipated! Hundreds of scans have been made and some of those taken earlier this year will need to be done again to ensure they can be used. One exciting plan is to scan every match day programme – every page, not just the cover! To help with the task they are still looking for additional help and have made approaches to the local university/colleges.

Our Walking Football Club went on tour to Majorca earlier this summer and they were successful, returning home with Joint Winner’s Trophy. They now play in the Airco Arena on Mondays and Thursday mornings. New members will be welcome, either morning, Mondays at 10.00 am and Thursdays at 1-00pm.

Barbara mentioned that there were still places available for the trips to Hornsea, Hartlepool, Burton on Trent & Bradford.

Barbara had also been invited to attend a meeting in London to discuss Safe Standing in football stadiums. She took her seat round the table and glanced at her name plate – correct name, just that they had added the Hull FC logo!!! She also spoke up for those who can’t stand up and can’t see when those in front stand up regardless. This was appreciated and representatives from both Chelsea & Spurs agreed to take her comments back to their clubs.

Gerry Ashton had donated £100 for the Senior Tigers to provide a trophy for their Player of the Season. Pat Betts had agreed to run this and members would be invited each month to make their suggestion for the Player of the Month. These would accumulate through the season and the eventual winner would hopefully be revealed at our end of season Luncheon.

We were very happy to win the vouchers from the Garbutts Bar in the August raffle as it was our first visit as members of the Senior Tigers. We spent an enjoyable evening there, had a really good meal and still had vouchers to spare! We are looking forward to another evening of good food, as the service was very good and all the staff were pleasant and obliging. So thank you Senior Tigers for our really nice evening.

Sandra and Bernard Thorpe

With lunch consumed we gathered for our meeting and were introduced to the club’s Assistant Coach, Mr Andy Crosby. The Chair’s first question was to ask whether the players were responding in training following that tough loss to Derby County. Andy assured us that they had responded well and that they really cared about their performance. It had clearly been our best performance of the season to date and that young Dan Batty had been the best player on the pitch. Andy mentioned that young guys will make mistakes but that they are really trying hard and were determined to do well.

Our meeting on 6th September, 2018

Our new season got underway with a wonderful buffet spread, provided by the kindness of the football club. Members tucked in and thoroughly enjoyed the provision. Our grateful thanks to Hull City afc.

He mentioned the frustration of the Deadline Day when, as well as the two players they had signed, they had another player at the training ground but were unable to sign him because his own club had failed to bring in the player they needed as his replacement. Even so, he felt that bringing in Tom Elphick was bringing a player with knowledge & experience that would benefit the other players on both the pitch and at the training ground. Of Chris Martin he mentioned that 3/4 years ago he was a top top striker but that he had since lost his place in the Derby squad. This was the move he needed and that he would add good value to the team.

Our Chair then turned to Andy Crosby with a series of questions about himself. We learned that he was born in Rotherham, the only child to a mining family. From early days he loved football and mentioned that “if you love football, it will love you back”

Asked about his early heroes/idols he suggested Arthur Scargill!! He was watched by Rotherham United but at 11 years they turned him down. Three years later he was signed by Leeds United and progressed to their YTS scheme at 16 years. This coincided with Leeds challenging at the top of the Premiership and meant his own progression could be hampered by their ability to attract players from across the country. At 18 years he therefore moved to Doncaster Rovers. He played for them in defence or, as Andy preferred, as “a ball playing technical defender”. His next move was to Darlington where he became club captain at 21 years and appeared at Wembley in a League 2 Play-off Final. Unfortunately they were not successful.

In 1998 he was about to move to Wigan where terms had been agreed but the very next day, before forms had been signed, John Dehan, their manager, was sacked! He was then called in by Brentford only for their manager to also get the sack before forms had been signed! The only other option he had was an offer to join Chester City and with a pregnant wife he took the offer .... only for that club to go bust! Can anyone have a better series of misfortune than that?

Eventually an offer came in from Brighton, paying £10,000 for his signature – “absolute bargain” was his comment. During his 4 years at the club he helped them to promotion into League 1. His next club would be Oxford United for whom he scored 12 goals (“mainly penalties” he claimed) before finally joining Brian Laws at Scunthorpe United - as an experienced pro’ to help develop the young players in the team. He played 167 games for the Iron, scoring 16 goals and promotions from League 2 to the Championship. In his 700th league game he had a penalty against Southampton. He always scored his penalties, always, yet on this occasion he failed – however he still scored a goal from the rebound! After 2 years at Scunthorpe, in 2006, Nigel Adkins took over as coach. Andy gave praise to his colleague, “a fantastic guy and friend”, “honest, does his best every single day” and “I’d trust him 100%”.

He mentioned that when Scunny lost the Johnson’s Paint Trophy Final at Wembley Nigel had gathered his disappointed squad and promised them they would be back at Wembley for the Play off Final and win. He really motivated those players. Andy’s playing days were largely behind him but Nigel wanted him to play in the play off semi against MKD for the experience he would bring to the players – it was his first match in almost 6 months but they won on penalties, after extra time. The Wembley Final would be against Millwall, what would also be Andy’s final match, and they won! There was a spontaneous round of applause round the room.

As a coach he went with Nigel to Southampton in League 1. They were fifth bottom on arrival but would be promoted to the Championship and then, again, to the Premiership. Sadly they were not to enjoy the fruits of their labours. With an opening run of fixtures like .. the Champions, Man City, away, then home fixtures first with the Cup Winners, Wigan, and then Manchester United followed by an away trip to Arsenal, they were always likely to struggle and the Saints were not to be patient. He would later go with Nigel to Reading and then Sheffield United, two clubs wanting success without delay before they eventually arrive at the Tigers last December – a large squad and 17 injured players! Here’s to the future.

Questions from the floor included one about the value of “Free Agents”. The difficulties were explained, Age, Injuries, Expensive Wages and whether they were prepared to give 100% to our club. He was asked whether we might go to three at the back. “It is an option” What went wrong against Blackburn? They didn’t do the fundamentals and basics. He mentioned that they had a frank & honest review on the Monday and the response was there to be seen the next night, at Rotherham. Was Dan Batty on contract? Yes, he was committed for the next 2 seasons. He was pleased with his development and that the player had been knocking on the door at the end of last season! His start had been “fantastic!”Is football in your DNA? “It has to be!”It had been an inspiring interview. Andy was then leaving us to go direct to the airport for an engagement somewhere on the Continent.

The meeting continued with the Chair first expressing our sadness at the loss over the summer of two members, Trevor Dunn and Pay Poskitt. Peter introduced us to the Raffle – brilliant as ever. Barbara mentioned that there were 6 places still available for the Hartlepool Naval Museum visit on 20th Sept. and that she was taking bookings for the National Brewery at Burton (October 18th) and Bradford City (November 15th). Rob gave us a brilliant introduction to the website and the photographs of old players waiting for members to come up with names. Finally, to great delight, our esteemed Chair, Dave, announced that the October meeting (4th) would be addressed by “Burnsie” from Radio Humberside.

Our monthly Members’ Meeting took place in the Circle Restaurant, this due to the Dug Out being in use as a School for the children of Hull Fair. Our special guest speaker was David Burns from BBC Radio Humberside.

At the beginning our Chair gave a number of notices starting with our December pre-Christmas Luncheon. We already had approaching 130 people booked and more were still booking their places. Dave mentioned that we would change the format from our in-house Quizzes to something very different. No secrets were being released but more was promised at the November meeting!

Notice was given of the Hull Photo Society’s Exhibition in Princes Quay throughout October. They had been very supportive to us doing the launch of our Memorabilia Programme earlier in the year. Pete introduced the Raffle and a list of exciting prizes whilst Babs drummed up support for the forthcoming visits to the National Brewery Museum in Burton (Oct) Valley Parade (Nov). Our Player of the Month was also introduced, noting that on arrival each month members would be invited to declare their choice for the Player of the Month. These will all add up through the season and lead to the announcement of our first Player of the season.

Burnsie introduced himself by sharing his delight that someone can still organise a “xxx-up in a brewery”. He mentioned just how pleased he was to be back in the commentary seat – which brought a spontaneous round of applause. He mentioned that he had missed this last season but that it had affected ‘Swanny’ more than himself since he did not have back-up opportunities to turn to.

He was guided to make reference to the possible return of Paul Duffen, backed by serious Saudi Arabian investors. He even put a note of caution in, reminding us that his first tenure at the club had not been successful and his departure saw the club in financial meltdown. However, this was a different approach and could be the break through we were waiting for. Due diligence is now underway. Sky Sports was suggesting that there were also two other groups bidding.

We learned from Burnsie that he was born in 1959 in Glasgow but that he and his family moved when he was 5 years old – “I was too hard for Glasgow!” He did, however, remember watching Sir Alex Ferguson play for Rangers. The family moved around, “my mother was addicted to Removal Men” – moving round the country and even as far as Nigeria.

He went to University, well, he admitted, to Birmingham Polytechnic. Four years during which he had one night in! A brilliant time and he still managed a=n Honours degree in Business Studies. Then came Journalism, a plan he just fell into – “I’ve fallen into a lot of things!” He started with the BBC on finance & personnel and then had opportunity to stand in for John Tonda at Grimsby Town. Overall it took him 7 years to make the transition to football, He left R.H. where he was working under David Gibbons, and took a job with Radio Sheffield as their Sport’s Editor, covering the period when Barnsley made the Premier League. In 2000 he transferred to London to work with BBC Radio 1, 2 and even 4 but admitted that “people didn’t quite get me!”. During his months in the Capital he felt like a hamster in a wheel and he really missed those nights visiting places like Spotland (Rochdale).

He was asked for his favourite away ground and admitted a liking for Arsenal & Manchester City which both provided a free bar with a preference for the Gunners as they also threw in personalised fish ‘n chips! Chelsea also provided him with bottles of wine for the journey home whilst the Vetchfield (Swansea) was among the scariest. The commentary box was at the top of the stand, accessed by a ladder which swayed as you climbed. He was once left at the top, post match, when all the lights were turned out and he had to find his way down in total darkness!

When the call to return to R.H. he was delighted. Preparing for a match meant a few hours and then the partnership with Swanny followed. He was asked whether the banter with Swanny was off the cuff or scripted and admitted it was totally ad lib, off the cuff.

Sport had always been a dominant part of his life. He played football, tennis, golf and had watched football across the country, in Nigeria and also in Trinidad. Many years previous he was crowned Butlin’s Putting Champion and he is the reigning HCOSC Dart’s Champion!

R.H. asked him to move from Sport’s Talk to the Morning Show as they wanted to boost the listening figures. He only agreed on the proviso that he remained on match commentary. He mentioned that he just tries to make a difference to people’s lives. In these recent years he has achieved a number of high accolades, 3 times Broadcaster of the Year no less. He was now in with a shout of the Sony Awards for Best Radio Presenter in the Country, already in the top six. (since then he has, of course, won that top place award. Our congratulations.)

Another big love is live music and he is always delighted to help publicise young local talent making their early marks. His love of music was really established in those days at Brum Poly when he was out night after night.

More questions would now be put to him:

He was asked about his experiences with different managers & owners. Nigel Pearson was always awkward in interviews but undoubtedly a really good manager. Phil Brown was terrific to work with even though he twice banned Burnsie. Terry Nolan also served a ban on Burnsie! Bruicie was great to deal with and Nigel Adkins is so positive, uber positive that he had to love him to bits.

His memories of 2008? Watching the queues outside the stadium looking for tickets and being promising bacon butties on air being challenged from the crowds where these butties were! He also predicted that Dean Windass would score!

He mentioned that Billy Bremner was one of his real heroes and that during his time at Radio Sheffield he had been join by Billy as a summariser. He was terrific.

Who would he most like to interview? Sir Alex and also the late John Peel.

The current absence of Mike Dean? He informed us that “he was just not well”

He was asked that if the Saudi Arabian take over is successful who would he like to nominate for the ritual beheadings at the KCOMM? Much humour which he safely navigated! He was asked whether the take over would include the SMC. He responded saying that it has to be included, there had to be a ‘clean break’.

During Slutsky’s tenure Burnsie had been given a Russian Doll set. He confirmed this and that it stands on his mantelpiece. Of Slutsky himself he said he was a really charming man but never had a chance. The quality of recruitment was simply not good enough.

Who decides which match appears on R.H. FM frequency? It was the Sport’s Editors decision. Burnsie said he would have City on FM all the time but other factors are taken in to account.

Late night Yorkshire wide Radio Show? He had a run a couple of years ago, enjoyed the experience but was not invited back!

Have you reported on TV (local or national)? “Do I look like I could?” !

Most bizarre moment in the commentary box? At the Dell (Southampton) the Press Box was very tight and one guy tried to exit by a window and got stuck! Personally he recalled North Ferriby winning the FA Vase at Wembley. Gwillym Lloyd was on the pitch with the players and Burnsie was describing the scene. “The champagne cocks are popping!” It took a long time in the studio to calm down from that slip up!

Of the Allams he felt that much of their grief was probably self inflicted and that they had wasted a golden opportunity.

What would be his dream changes for the future? Tickets at £20, seniors at £10 and kids for a fiver.

So we came to a close on what had been a memorable afternoon. Many thanks to Burnsie from us all.

A visit to Bradford City's Valley Parade for a stadium tour and then on to the National Science & Media Museum in Bradford.

The cost of this trip is £15.
