And finally… steward comes a cropper

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Official proof that stewards are harder than players this week. Last weekend Newcastle United faced Fenerbahce (in Austria, naturally) with one steward coming a cropper thanks to a brutal assault by Toon full-back Davide Santon. If Santon had done that to another player, he’d still be rolling around now, but our man in the high-viz jacket is up faster than you can say “compensation claim”.
