Yes, v York in November 74. Middle aged guy who apparently had mental issues.

 

It was on Telly too and Keith Macklin nearly had a heart attack!

His name was Dennis Pottle and you’re right he struggled with his mental health. He worked as a labourer at BSC Stocksbridge. Every now and then things used to get on top of him and he spent time in Middlewood. 

I met Dennis, at work,  a few years after the streaking incident. Nice bloke, strong as an ox, but really struggled to cope with life. 

Story was he did the streak just to get committed again. Sad really.

Yes Dennis was in and out of Middlewood, I was a nurse there and he worked at the car wash (occupational therapy unit)

Burnley at home, first match of the season, probably early 2000’s... think we lost 2-0, female streaker Kop/South stand area of the pitch, during the second half. Please tell me I wasn’t drinking and it is true :biggrin:

No, that was a pitch invasion. I was getting mixed up with home game with Brighton in 2005.... SHEFFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM - OCTOBER 24: A streaker runs onto the pitch next to John Hills of Sheffield during the Coca-Cola Championship match between Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton and Hove Albion at Hillsborough on October 24, 2005 in Sheffield, United Kingdom.

I seem to remember one in the mid to late 90’s. Possibly last game of the season against Liverpool?

Remember that being an eye opener to my 10 year old self . Years later , that day was still the closest I got :duntmatter:

That Brighton game in 2005 was on TV, if I recall correctly, which may have been a factor in why there was a streaker.

 

John Hills though! God, we've had some dog dirt players over the past 20 years - Come to think of it, I suspect Leon Best was playing in that game as well!

 

Edit - Which nicely links the 'streakers' or 'strikers' bit of this thread.

Leon Best Though!!!!!
