this is the original plate/salver that kumar bought for the winners of our centenary trophy match against shamrock rovers
steve borley was so embarrassed by it that he sent ceri whitehead out to buy another trophy to present to the winners which was us.it was a case of don't leave that there guv il nick it
Shamesh Kumar also gave us Phil Neal, Russell Osman and Kenny Hibbitt. Generous to a fault he was.
Sorry Steve hijaked the thread. I will stop now. Just seeing The' Kumar' trophy brings it all back.
I promise you this is a true story I used to sit behind kumar and joan hill in the directors box wth steve back in the day. every game kumar would send joan down with a note for Kenny hibbert to make substitutions of which he did without fail. to cut a long story short he sacked Kenny despite the fact he was virtually picking the team and put Russell Osman in charge. the first time he sent the note down it came back with fuck off written on it. there then ensued a huge row in the boardroom after the game and that's the reason Russell only lasted a few games but had my utmost respect. I will post some more pictures and tell you a story about phil neal later
He kept Kenny on didn't he. Director of football. they were big mates were they? My grampi used to know the Chairman of Bury Town. He said when we had Kumar that he was too nice and didn't have a pot to piss in football wise but loved having a Club regardless. I still loved them days. The coal face of football. Please feel free to regail me with stories Steve. Love them. really do.
