Taffy Blasts O.A.P. In Head With Ball
Submitted By: Nick Barnett

Back in about 1988/89 Linden 'Taffy' Jones always used to kick the ball against the South Bank perimeter wall after the teams came out. Unfortunately, before one game his instincts got the better of him and remembering it was the Branfoot era he managed to hoof a long ball over the wall and smack into the face of an unsuspecting elderly gentleman. Taffy then gave a 'sheep'-ish grin as he ran over to see if the now heavily concussed man was OK. Thankfully the trusty St Johns ambulance people were on hand to save the day and Linden went on to play a stormer of a game! (...Maybe - I can't actually remember).
