Barmy Bardsmen Get Batman Manager

Those who dislike the cool style adopted by Curbs in the dugout, and think the game is about passion rather that technical proficiency, might want to take a leaf out of Midland Alliance outfit Stratford Town. The club seems to be taking its Thespian roots a bit too far, having hired a manager who wears a Batman outfit. Dennis Mulholland dresses up in the outfit and bursts into the changing room before kick off, according to the Non League Paper. His eleven year old son, however, seems somewhat reluctant to assume the role of Robin assigned to him.

The Barsdmen never seem to have recovered from being taunted with shouts of 'Two nil or not two nil?' when they were behind that margin at home to Leamington.

Although one can hardly see Curbs as a caped crusader, perhaps readers could suggest other barmy outfits that could be worn by the management team, including Mervyn Day. After all, the teams are announced as 'It's showtime at The Valley!' Perhaps advice could be taken from Elton John.

How about Mervyn Day as "The Incredible Hulk"?

Alternatively Mervyn could be Butt Man
