cerneabbas - I got this from the Bluemoon web-site re: Kippax Debbie
"Kippax Debbie was puzzling, a stunning looking angelic blonde girl............. To me it was obvious she was a boy trapped in a stunning girl's body and resented it. All the stories about her fighting and ability to take on grown men are true. I saw her deck men often, almost as if she had a point to prove. As she got older she became more stunning and was attracting the attention of lots of Blues............ she went out for drinks and that but come Saturdays that was all forgotten and it was back to 'Kippax Debbie'
She tried to kill herself twice before eventually jumping off a motorway bridge and dying. She was not in her forties but in her early to mid twenties - we never could find out her true age".
"Sad story BU. I remember Deb well, especially when she was hunting reds in the Kippax on Derby day, Like you say, good looking girl too.
"She loved Derby day, as did her brother Tony. Seen Debs walk the whole length of Warwick Road at the swamp (i.e Old Trafford) early 80's with a silk City scarf tied around her head like a bandana and no amount of abuse stopped her."
Not conclusive on the age thing, but I think she was a little young for the skinhead era.
I think that you are right she probably was too young,quite a sad story really.
Interesting to see Old Trafford called the swamp,was that because the pitch was so muddy ? I do remember seeing it muddy on tv but quite a few were like that back then,Derby for one.
