    Those stewards take no prisoners.Our steward in the family stand is a top bloke. I know he is a true red, however, a couple a seasons ago I was outside the ground with my nephew who is deaf. He used to love watching the players arrive. Before one game he was waiting, the team arrived the very efficient stewards started moving the barriers. One big bruiser asked him to move,the lad was so excited, he was nt facing the guy to lip read, sensing the stewards urgency, I immediately, I am talking about within a minute,tried to move the lad away by which time, the steward had got sooooo annoyed that he pushed the barrier aggressively into the little lads face. Woman or no woman I wiped the floor with him and he did apologise went he discoverd that the lad was not being awkward,he just didnt hear him.
