Before and after every home game, often then down the Old Kent Road, I was mixing and mingling with the top boys of all the firms. And I felt comfortable. My first match was against Oldham on Saturday, 4 November 1978. I can remember it being freezing cold but, once inside, all the heat of the bodies soon warmed me up. I could not really see a lot but, when we scored, the noise was deafening. That roar of the crowd. I was desperate for us to score again to hear that noise. We did. Wow! I was hooked.
And eventually, we did. Four years and thirty-six days since our last game, along came a Tuesday night Cup tie against Essex’s finest. Everyone would be coming out the woodwork for this one. The meet for us was kept a secret up until the last minute. The day before the game, word went round that we would meet at Blackhorse Road. A few of us met at All Bar One in Leicester Square in the afternoon; we had a few beers then made our way to Blackhorse Road on the Tube. West Ham had been told where the meet would be, out the way of the Old Bill.
We had them trapped. They used pick-axe handles, hammers and wrenches to gain a brief advantage – or really just to keep us from crawling all over them. The game kicked off but most of us didn’t even notice. We had the ICF stuck at the back of the stand and we were on the attack. They defended themselves for 90 minutes – and for the ICF, it was 90 minutes of hell. At the final whistle, they managed to make it out on to the street outside the ground. The Old Bill sent in the horses but they still had to get to the station and they ran the gauntlet of continuous attacks.
