Found a wallet on the floor, shouted to a policeman who was walking round the pitch. He wouldnt take it off me but dragged me over the wall. I was in my late teens, 6'+.He took me down the tunnel in the old West stand. Took my address and the wallet, i then had to walk up the tunnel just before the players came out, weird feeling. Clambered back over the wall. Enjoyed the game. Two weeks later received a letter with a fiver in it thanking me for my honesty and a invite to visit the owner of the wallet if ever i went up to Middlesborough. Really enjoyed that sentiment, one football fan to another. Cant remember the year but i think we won.

I can remember that. Barry caught the ball and dutifully handed it to the ref, who then gave a pen.
