Ricardo, did Dick Rolf take over from you in the box?

Queues of people eager to get in at the turnstiles.....finally getting into the small building with rain dripping through the roof....the heavy turning ratchet of the turnstile....the handing over of Jack Dash, knowing that once through, you were in for some great entertainment, players and of course Baz up to his antics.
The promotion season running up to the old L3 must be the highlight for me. Games that stick out are the 3-2 win over Crewe after bing 2-1 down....beating Blackpool 3-0. Bully and Carter: absolute magic.

His best story is the one about the ex Manager and the Member of Staff after hours in the office of the main stand when he went to the tannoy box to collect some records. 45rpm and 78rpm they were! Greavsie doesn't know where the new ground even is............
Buy me a pint and I'll tell you the whole story and a few others.

Yes he told me that story, that ex-manager was going at 33 and a third, taking his time.
He'd want more than a pint.

Just remembered another story Mr. Rolfe related about naked star jumps and a certain well-known Bees footballer.

It's got to be worth a bottle of Drambue.

He really ought to write his memoirs.

Both my kids loved to hear his friendly voice over the tannoy and often asked me where he was when he finished....happy days.

I seem to remember seeing Mr Rolfe doing the tannoy at a show jumping event the day after Graz got his 5 for Peterborough. Quite apt following the donkey Nicky Rust the previous day.

Show jumping, rugby league, rugby union, there was no end to his talents!
Thank you amberforever, but not quite finished yet! Indeed happy days.
