    I worked at Nat West Silver Street from 1974 and one if the first jobs I had was to to post out the 'cash cards' that had been used (£10 max). Three were only useable once a time and, obviously, you had to wait for it to be posted back to you before you could use it again!

    Yes I most likelly dropped a micro dot myself in my stupid days when I was 14 to 17 ,I often did in brickhouse or upstairs in Haworth Arms.

    Then I I got addicted to scooters and scooter rallys and spent my cash on those things instead

    Lots of turf wars back in the day.....never did like anyone from the East side of the river......and my mates from Chants Ave had many a ruck with the Stanley Street lot around town and in/outside Tiffs/LA's. Got jumped a few times on my way home from town.

    Always had a love/hate relationship with the Boothferry lot too, but that mostly centred around Sunday League rivalries.

    Hate watching football in pubs. Back in the day everyone actually went to the match, there was no football to watch in pubs on a Saturday afternoon. Remember live rugby league on the telly as a very young lad before I was old enough to go to City or it could have been when City were away, always filled in between the end of the horse racing and the start of the football scores, Eddie Waring....describing some mind numbingly boring game on a muddy pitch, usually foggy with a punch up and someone going for an early bath.
    Watching football in pubs is relatively a new thing and not good for the game.

    When the 1972/73 season started I had just turned 17 in the August I was a skinhead, then Bowie broke as Ziggy so I grew my hair, took 6 months mind, got it rainbow dyed at Chelsea Cut by Steve Rowe, and bang, what a ****ing time to go to clubs in Hull then. even walking down the street used to attract comments, old blokes used to shout puff at me, ha.

    I had cash the clothes and the hair, the girls loved it, then I met our lass at 19 got married at 21, (40 years ago last Sunday) so then I became an adult, sort of, but that couple of years was bleeding fantastic as a kid.

    I'm bleeding 61 now with no hair, ( I blame the hair dye) but look back with fondness to the 70's and even though the football was utter ****e mostly, I'm so glad to have lived through it because I really appreciate the good times at City now.

    Always remember on a Friday or Saturday nights the guys in the Schooner pub drinking up and walking to Hessle looking for a fight in Top House or Admiral

    The Boothferry/Hessle scraps were a nuicence if anything, Hessle was a place to have a good time, Ferry Boat also got lumbered as a bad gig at one point, but it was a place that you could have a good night out without bothering about going into Hull all the time. Ferryboat, Granby, Admiral, Darleys, Top House, Norland/Eight Bells, and with 3 clubs at one point, Grange, Hessle Ex Servicemans and Marlborough (not to be confused with the one off Chants Ave), there was a buzz about the place. Hull was a bonus with the likes of Baileys, Mecca (ok L.A.'s) and an abundance of other venues, but a good night out could be had in Hessle, or if you prefered, Ferriby, Cottingham and even Anlaby. But the lads from Boothferry had their own watering holes so there was no reason to come to Hessle, as I say a nuicence which got the cops involved on a few occasions.

    Anyone remember the kid nicknamed "Suzi Quattro" in the south stand. He wore glasses and carried a bit of timber IIRC?

    Edit. When I say timber I mean he was chubby, not he carried a piece of wood to home games.
