Actually just seen it was the back end of July in 1995, Stones travelled to Canvey Island for their first 'proper' friendly of the season with GB in charge. We took a good 50 fans there, all eager to see the new order at Wealdstone. From memory was a baking hot afternoon of which a small contingent made a day of and were sauced up by kick off time. Was the big Steve, little Steve, Khanna, Megaphone, BUTE, Keif South Harrow contingent possibly? Some singing on the terraces as Stones put in an extremely promising performance against a fancied team from above. Steve Fraser scored a couple as we run them ragged in the heat. We got to see the likes of Chris Walton, Fergus Moore and a couple of other newbies for the first time.

It was going to be easy in Division Three that season...........
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.
