The Pit Men Cometh

Hre come Frickley

Here come Frickley

Frickley seem to be a lot of peoples’ least favourite club.Hardly a week passes without some sort of dire tale of a journey into the pitdust known as Westfield Lane,home of Frickley FC. According to several accounts the places isn’t so much inhabited by football fans as disenchanted former miner’s unable to shake off a longing for duffing people up on the picket line.That said my only experience of Frickley fans has been a positive one, never having travelled to Westfield Lane I’ll reserve judgement on the much , and I’m sure in several cases unfairly, maligned Frickley home support.

Perhaps there is something understandable in this ‘no one likes us we don’t care mentality’ .After the government has given you a few kicks in the nether regions I doubt any pit town is going to be a bed of roses, give a dog a bad name and all that. Apparently 400 police used to escort two strike breaking miner’s to work at Frickley Colliery in the 1980s,now they escort the match officials to the game.  Or as Cumbawumba wrote in their song ‘Frickley’

Frickley in South Yorkshire, a small mining town
Where once the riot coppers beat the pickets to the ground
Has a football team, and a stand full of fans
Who love their game and who love revenge
If a cop comes near the ground
On a Saturday afternoon
He’ll be heading the bricks
Until he’s over the moon

It’s worth pointing out that the club has an FA Cup league scalp to their name (Hartlepool) and has a few seasons in the Conference under their belts.Last season they performed a lazuarus -like recovery to move from a points haul of 7 at the end of October to escape the drop with something to spare.Not a side to be taken lightly by anyone.

Bring your canaries in cages, your head torches and your hob nailed boots on Saturday.There’s work to be done and three points to be dug out…
