Scumton, please remember we are not the ones that are fighting for survival in our league. The only stars at deadwood are the rats from the river behind your beloved chicken farm. Get real, next season we will kick your ar5e5, get 3 points, then watch you slope back to your slimey little hovells in BB1s tip. as you lot say. f4rte lavotore.

A list of people that were supposed to be attending last year was published but a lot of them did not bother turning up.Danny Dyer and X Factor attention seeker Katie Waissell are just two I can't think of from the top of my head.I would ignore any publised list and just turn up on the day if it is not raining.
