He threw a couple of big right haymakers. I stepped back from both of them. Concentrate … hit … don’t get hit … hit … don’t get hit. As I ducked back from the second one, I stepped back in. Bang. A big right. Caught him flush on the side of the head. He did not like that. He turned tail and ran. He was the catalyst. A few of them saw this and they ran, too, causing panic and even more to have it on their toes. Fighting was still going on around me and we easily had the upper hand.

How my ears pricked up and my eyes lit up when the chaps in the firm were talking about some recent fight or other. Without saying it, it was very clear to me that my dad did not want me to join ‘The Firm’. He did not go that particular day. Me and my two uncles were there. My dad was working in a warehouse near the Old Kent Road. He was a storeman for a big stationery company and I knew he was going to start missing more and more games.

They had picked their spot and I went for a wander down to the front of the terrace. There were no cages – I could have jumped over and run on to the pitch. We had taken a couple of hundred, I would think. Not that many that I couldn’t have found my dad again.
