Reminds me when I was heading into Accrington’s ground about 10 years ago to watch the Iron and a really pleasant lady steward suggested I should use the over 60’s turnstile.
Told her I was 3 or 4 years away from being eligible and she was seriously embarrassed – I was laughing and said I must have had more to drink the previous night than I remembered.
A similar situation happened to myself MK, I was at a Scunny game at Rochdale last season, I was just about to enter the OAP Gate when a steward stopped me and saib “this gate is for pensioners only” as I am 80 this month, this was a bit of a shock for me, but made me feel good until another steward told him “can’t you see he can use this gate, he looks bloody 90 never mind 65!!! ????
