"0-2 down .... "
"Seadogs", that's the nickname of Scarborough Athletic, not a description of these Scarborough Athletic supporters I may add, have seen it all before. Their club, 0-2 down after just thirteen minutes.
Winning the meat raffle may console the Scarborough Athletic supporters after an abject first half performance. Little did they know what was to follow in the next forty-five minutes!
Retford United players walk off 2-0 ahead, the Scarborough Athletic players knowing what's going to happen in the dressing room ...

residing in Retford, follows The Badgers and The Blades.
Reminisced about the days of Len Badger, Tony Currie, Alan Woodward, fell out the Football League direction and now regularly attends Cannon Park and Retford United away games.
Prophetic words ... "The reason why the Football League clubs don't publicise the local non-league scene is simply because of fear. A fear that stems from the belief that once "their" supporters taste the non-league football scene, they'll stay there and won't return to highly inflated admission prices, pampered celebrity, front page tabloid footballers, because what they see at non league, is honest football, played for little or no financial rewards. You can stand at Retford, have a drink in the clubhouse, smoke on the terraces, things that the working class supporter has done for years at football grounds up and down the country on a Saturday afternoon from 3.00pm onwards"
