It will have been about 1996 away v Carlisle in FA Cup.  I think we won 2-0.

 

For some reason it’s always stuck in my mind....

 

All the Wednesday fans singing “Curly Watts” at a young steward that looked like the character from Coronation Street.

 

Eventually they had to move the poor lad.

 

one of the stewards wasn’t taking it in the spirit the song was intended so then the Wednesday end started singing “chip pan head, chip pan head” at him. He didn’t know what to do...,

 

Never before or since have I ever heard somebody called “chip pan head” lol 

 

Strange how you can remember certain things so clearly more than 20 years later....

Just looked, it was January 1997

 

Chip Pan head chip pan head chip pan head chip pan head chip pan head.

First ever rendition of YFB was in the late 60's Daily Mirror photographer was a mountain of a man did the Lane one week and Hillsborough the next. Don't know if it started at Hillsborough or the Lane but it stayed with him until he retired. Always wore a tie, must have been at least 25 stone.

Remember that game. Had two sides of the ground.

 

Five of us set off in an XR2i at 6.30am (cos we were thick and had no idea how long it would take to get to Carlisle) arrived in Carlisle at 9am wondering the streets.

 

Driving back hit some right fog couldn't see a ruddy thing.

Woah, slow down a sec...

 

Other clubs allow home and away fans in the same time zone? 

 

MIND. BLOWN. 

 

I'm not sure about the same time zone. We played them January 2018 IIRC, so that makes it 1978 in Carlisle I guess. lol

I think some think are the police, due to the fewer numbers of police in grounds these days. Sometimes I think they need reminding that they are merely cheap labour in a yellow jacket.

So you see it fit to abuse and laugh at them when  as you say yourself, their job is made harder by the fact that there are fewer police?

True story.

You shouldn't have hidden a couple of pork pies an a salami in the boxers. They stand out a mile. On second thoughts that;s probably why you did it.

Steward at top of gangway J on the North is great. 

 

Greets everyone with a smile, an ‘afternoon’ and a handshake.

Yeah top bloke, saw him at play off final and got the same treatment n all.

 He wasn't there Saturday it was the new lot just generally getting in the way. Hope the decent regular stewards haven't been affected by all this bleedin madness.

On Saturday I attempted to leave the ground early (4.45) to try and beat the crush out of the North Stand. Despite us being informed that Penistone Road would be completely closed from 4.30, it was still open, but the most stupidly annoying thing was the fact that the new yellow coated shock troops (masquerading as stewards) wouldn't open the gates to let us out, and instead were shuffling us through a side gate into the parking area adjacent to the club shop. Exactly what the point of this latest intrusion into our lives was meant to achieve I'm not sure, but it was certainly causing further unnecessary delay to the process, and angry comments from the crowd behind.

 

Visiting Hillsborough on match days is becoming a less enjoyable experience with every game that passes.  Not just because of the performances on the field.

Do we have two firms employing stewards?  Certainly the turnstiles seem overmanned, BUT 

we must remember there are cretins who will try to take smoke bombs etc as well as people who are intent on 'terrorist; type activities. Security has been tightened everywhere, and not just for our safety 

Many stewards, however, do let a little power go to their heads, and don't forget they are ordinary folk like you and me.

 

There is a second opinion about some  stewards, so don't tar all with the same brush. Take my own case, and please hear me out!

I am a 79 y-o, just starting my 73rd season I walk with 2 sticks and difficulty.I love to sit in my own seat, Row Z, between aisles 8 & 9

To reach this seat, I have to walk from Penistone Road to Gate J, from where I have to negotiate 2 flights of steps, 28 steps in total,before arriving on the South concourse. I then have a further 9 steps to get to the passage that runs between Row Z and Row AA.

On Saturday, I approached the temporary ticket office, and stayed for a blow.  I was immediately approached by 2 stewards, who asked if i wanted assistance.

I was escorted to a lift, taken up into the Club Foyer, gave my details to a very kind gentleman, who gave me the contact details for a lift pass, then escorted me directly ontto the concourse. 'Come out this way and we will arrange for you to exit' I was told.

On climbing the short way from the concourse to the stand, the steward there, helped me to my seat without my asking.

On exit, I was met by the same Gentleman who took me out into the club foyer, where I was told not only would the  club contact me, but that I could enter the same way next match,, and that I could even bring a Carer with me.

 

I have found that most of the SWFC stewards , if properly approached, are very helpful. Often one gets what one deserves. Treat people with respect, and usually they will respond in a like manner 

Fantastic post that,. Good to hear about the positive side of rewarding, soulds like they must have been thr swfc stewards at a guess. Hope it made your matchday experience easier (except the actual game).

There are two companies yes.

 

Ones employed by SWFC and outsourced. From what I hear, the SWFC stewards have as many problems with the agency ones as the fans
