BOB HOLDEN


 

Profile

A member for over 30 years and it's time this unassuming, shy person came out of his shell and give a forthright opinion on a topic. A retired, old style copper, this genial man is said to be the origin of the more endearing terms that policemen are subjected to ....."all coppers are bastards"......."once a copper always a bastard" etc. He is a stalwart worker for the club; preparing wickets, regular maintenance work, administration, scoring, keeping all stats and archive records.........Mug !!!

After leaving Yorkshire in disgrace following accusations of fraud, money laundering and embezzlement.

Noddy (the one where Mr Plodd gives him a dose of his truncheon)

Too many to chose from; perhaps when he mercilessly beat up an elderly female peace campaigner who complained about police violence.
