Anyone remember that incident, I wasn’t there but my brother witnessed it, think it was after the game, a Boro fan decided to take short cut through the allotments but had to scale a wire fence but caught his hand and when he dropped he left his finger on top of the fence.....😮

Yes I posted about it recently I was walking right behind him & yes after the game, which we lost 1-0 to a Paul Wilkinson goal
As we made our way down this road one of the lads decided to leap the fence & a quick route over some allotments to the parked coaches you could see
As the lad jumped over his finger remained in the fence & came off, the next thing he jumped back over when he & his mates are legging it down the road to an ambulance parked at the bottom
The lad was from Billingham

I saw it - quite bizarre, he was stood there holding his hand up minus half his finger. Came off at the knuckle I think. Very nasty - it was those metal fences that are V shaped at the top so if your finger gets trapped in there it’ll just rip it off easily if you jumped down when it was caught. Can’t remember the year exactly - early to mid nineties I think

Erimus was it not before the game? He was rushing to get to the turnstiles I thought.

No zoo, definetly after the game as we were walking down the bank away from the ground
To race to the turnstiles he would have tried to jump towards us

Couldn't have been a Wilko goal then (for them) could it? Would have to be 80s?
