    Got the Book Gangs of Manchester, Not finished yet, but one thing sticks in my mind, It said the Scuttlers was not Criminals, The crimes they committed was against Lads like themselves, That was the same as us Original Skinheads, I got nicked 13 times, All related to Gangs, Except once when i got nicked attempting to nick a Car, Well it was my mate who tried , I was just standing there Lol.. after getting my ticket for the Chelsea V Watford Semi Final 69/70 Season.
    I have never had time for Thieves or Gangsters or anyone that breaks the Law. We was good lads, The Old Bill Nicked us for fcuk all back then,

    He's called Alan Mortlock, Google him and see what he's all about. If you run into him remember to tell him he's talking a lot of crap. LOL.

    Just Googled the Lad, fair play to him getting in the cage for a MMA fight..at 55, Still dont know where he got the idea about checks and gang status though, Mind you he would have been only 13 in 69, so just about squeezes into being a skinhead. In saying that some people claim to have been a skinhead at the Age of Ten in 69.

    I will take your Point,but why Debut at 55 into Unlicensed Boxing.Back in the late 70/early 80s I did Security at these and Independent Boxing Bouts(around East London and Essex).They were not a pretty sight.Roy"Pretty Boy"Shaw,Lenny"The Guv`nor" all fought at these Bouts.Massive punch-ups would erupt if a certain section of the Fans`Boy,did not win.There were also very large amounts of Cash changing hands(betting etc.).Alan Mortlock has been good to People-just look at some of the comments but.....

    I would not go to one Colin, Their is often trouble at Pro Boxing, fcuk that, Regarding Alan Mortlock, never heard of him until reading this thread this morning, I googled him apparently he has found Jesus, We had a Sgt in the Army who also found God, They transferred him to a Desk Job [​IMG]

    Regarding why debut into a unlicensed fight, dont know mate, maybe finding Jesus, has something to do with it, only the man himself knows.

    In the my original Post,I wrote about the Film"Villains Of The East End".Most of them came from Canning Town,Stratford,Plaistow etc.Some of them I had heard about or met-whilst working at the Palais in the 70s.Mr Carter(the then Manager) knew a lot of these Faces and would entertain them on Monday evenings(Grab A Granny Night).Alan Mortlock was on the outer ring(Ind.Boxing Promoter).We had a couple of his Promotions at the Palais.Apart from that nothing-only when he appeared on British Style Genius.

    any of you original fellas wear staprest by Brutus back in the day?

    or any other brand for that matter? I know there were several companies that did a perma-press stride but they've never talked about other than Levis

    didnt Brutus announce they might remake their staprest? not that it means much considering how long it's taken them to release "announced" shirt designs [​IMG]

    To be honest Jason,I could never wear Levi Sta-Prest because they cut in around the Crutch Area.I do not remember Brutus ones-but then I never wore any of their Gear anyway.

    Over 25s Night.That was the official Line,but then we let in 19/20 year olds(Girls/Young Women)-so the older Men flocked in.The older Women used to get right p*ss*d off about it.[​IMG]
