POLICE ARE still hunting for two missing suspects in the Chris Foster case as his family’s fight for justice goes on, the News can reveal.

In the week the dramatic four week trial concluded, seeing four face jail and four others walk free, it has been confirmed that one suspect is still to be identified and another is hoped to be extradited back to Britain after he is said to have fled abroad following the incident. As the Foster family spoke out saying ‘nothing will right the wrong’ of when the 34year-old single dad was stabbed in the back in a case of mistaken identity, the police said their search for the two missing suspects continued.

Nobody will be happy to say ‘we told you so’

I

F EVER there was a case for a collective ‘we told you so’ it’s probably the baffling decision to close the Maudsley Emergency Clinic back in 2007 - but no-one will take any pleasure in being proved right about this.

Back in 2007, the South London and Maudsley Trust took the decision in the face of widespread opposition in the community, and fears that the nearby King’s A&E department would not be able to cope with demand. Lo and behold, a report seen by Southwark Council’s health scrutiny committee this week has found precisely that, with a year on year increase in patients requiring mental health assessments - 3,780 in the last year alone. Put aside the debate about whether an accident and emergency department is the right place for someone with mental health issues to go (surely not). The real question is how so-called experts at SLaM could have taken such a decision which even your man or woman in the street could tell you was the wrong one. Was this regrettable decision influenced more by financial, rather than clinical considerations?

Infrastructure badly needed!

T

HE HUGE amount of homes being developed around Canada Water will only add to the continuing gridlock being faced every evening and morning in Rotherhithe.

Jamaica Road is officially the slowest road in Britain and those trying to make their way around the Rotherhithe peninsula experience delays that show little to no prospect of changing. The news that up to 6,000 new flats could be built there over the next twelve years – doubling what was planned - will fill motorists and residents with dread. The UDP designation of the area around Downtown to be suburban was hard fought. To have a green lung in the heart of the peninsula opposite Canary Wharf and under the shadow of new high rises being planned at Canada Water is vital. However, while the proposals for a new campus for King’s College London and a 40 storey tower are not directly in this suburban area, the council has to be hot on the heels of the developers to ensure that transport routes and green pathways are built so residents in Downtown are not encircled. It should be upmost in the minds of the planners to ensure that with this massive redevelopment, money is spent on infrastructure to ease the suffering of those using the roads around Rotherhithe. A good example of this is the renewed support for the Brunel Bridge proposal linking Rotherhithe with Canary Wharf.

The Southwark News is proud to be the only independent, paid for newspaper in London. It is owned and run by two Managing Directors, Chris Mullany and Kevin Quinn. Former reporters for Southwark News, they and David Ellis bought the title in 2002, after the founder Dave Clark died suddenly from cancer four years earlier. Southwark News started life as the Bermondsey News in 1987, as an A-4 photocopied sheet of paper and rapidly grew to cover the entire borough and the surrounding area. As the borough grew, so did the newspaper. Both directors live in the borough. A dedicated team of staff work tirelessly to cover as much of what is going on as possible and strive to ensure that a community-led, independent newspaper can survive and excel in a market dominated by national and multinational media groups.

By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

MICRO-PIGS are so five minutes ago. 2014 is all about the micropub, single room saloons where you can’t swing a cat but you can get a decent pint of cask ale.

Southwark has been ahead of the curve with The Rake in Borough opening in 2006, the year after the first micropub opened in Kent in an old butcher’s shop, with pints of beer served straight from the barrel on the old chopping block. Beer Rebellion opened earlier this year in a shop unit in Queen’s Road, Peckham, and now the tiny tavern revolution has come to Nunhead Green with The Beer Shop due to open in an old Haberdashers’ before Christmas. Lee Gentry and Lauren Willis came up with the idea a year ago but realised they could make it happen when they found the shop unit round the corner from where they live, which has been an instrument maker’s warehouse for the last few years. The married couple want their 35-seater beer emporium to feel like a “home from home” for their customers. “We want it to feel like we’re inviting people into our living room,” said 29-year-old Lauren. “We’re actually furnishing it in the same way,” she added, laughing, “It’s a real mish mash of different chairs and tables, just like our living room.” The pair want their pocket pub to be a place where their neighbours can get to know each other and get a taste of something different from local breweries like Brick in Peckham, and Clarkshaws in Dulwich. “It’s about people meeting, real ale and conversation,” said Lee, 29, but The Beer Shop won’t qualify for the Micropub Association criteria which strictly forbids the playing of music. The ale will be poured straight from the barrel and when it is dry, it will be replaced with something different. “It’s really exciting,” said Lauren. “There’s a real community buzz about it,” added Lee, who has been managing pubs for years. Revellers will get their pints served at their table after perusing a menu of the tipples on offer. “You’re not just going out for a pint, you’re going for an experience,“ agreed Lee.

March planned in support of tube extension to SE5

PECKHAM & CAMBERWELL: Campaigners are ready to march down the route they want the Bakerloo extension to take, to make sure the local hospital has better transport provision.

Plan would double original number By Oliver Pugh

UP TO 6,000 new flats could be built on the Rotherhithe peninsula over the next twelve years – doubling what was once planned.

Proposals include a new campus for King’s College London and a 40 storey tower, designed by the same developers who built the Shard. Southwark Council has confirmed that it has a target for around 4,000 homes new homes to be built in the area over the next twelve years, but privately developers are understood

to be pushing for 6,000. Construction and development is nothing new for Rotherhithe. In the last 30 years it has changed from industrial docklands to a sub-urban heartland, but developers are keen to make the most of the area’s position – close as it is to Canary Wharf. The extent of their ambition was laid bare last month at public hearings of a revised plan for the Canada Water area. The government’s planning inspector is reviewing the twelveyear plan for the peninsula in the light of the sale of the leasehold

King’s College London already has permission to house 800 students in the old Mulberry Business Park off Quebec Way. But the scale of the college’s plans is expected to grow to beds for up to 2,500 students, a lecture theatre, and swimming pool.

former Daily Mail printworks at Harmsworth Quays to British Land. Last year, British Land’s scheme for the now closed site was already for around 1,000 new homes but this figure is expected to increase as the shopping centre site is redeveloped with it. Sellar, the firm behind the Shard, plans a 40-storey tower for Canada water, including 1,030 new homes, with around 160 being affordable.

The Peckham and Camberwell Tube (PaCT) group, backed by medical staff at Kings’ College Hospital, say it is “crucial” the proposed next leg of the line running south from Elephant & Castle goes through Camberwell, which they say is poorly served by struggling public transport. “Thousands of people come pass through Camberwell every day for treatment, work and social reasons. The Overground and buses are overcrowded and there is no more room for any further bus traffic. We’ve been promised a tube before – now is the time to build it!,” demanded PaCT campaigner, Campaspe Lloyd-Jacob. Professor Moxham of King’s College Hospital added: “Better access to the hospitals for patients, visitors and staff is crucial.” The march will set off from Camberwell Green at 11am on November 29 and head up to Elephant and Castle underground station.

Horrors of war

First ASBO replacement given in Southwark

A YOUNG thief who snatched a neck chain and two Rolex watches from a 26-year-old man has been given what was believed to be one of the first Criminal Behaviour Orders granted in London.

Darren ‘Littles’ Campbell, 21, is now banned from mixing with a list of named men and from going to an area in Walworth. The terms of the Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO), granted at Woolwich Crown Court when Campbell was sentenced on October 31, also prohibit him from carrying a mobile phone that is not registered in his name, or being in a public place with two or more people and behaving in a manner likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress. It came after his conviction of theft from a person in Penrose Grove, Walworth, on April 30. Police alleged Campbell had links to the Anti-GMG or Peckham Young Guns gang. Campbell’s CBO is the long-

awaited replacement of the ASBO, which government feared was a badge of honour for some youngsters. Judges can impose CBOs only after a conviction. The court must also find that the defendant must engaged in behaviour that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people, and that the order will help prevent the offender from engaging in such behaviour again. After a trial Campbell was slapped with a CBO for four years and was sentenced to four months inside a young offenders’ institute. He was ordered to pay an £80 victim surcharge. Campbell, of Hillingdon Street in Walworth, was specifically banned from going to an area on the western side of Walworth Road, around the Penrose Estate.

Family jailed after car crime spree www.southwarknews.co.uk/news

By Oliver Pugh

oliver@southwarknews.co.uk

SIX MEMBERS of a family who admitted over 150 offences of taking catalytic converters from cars in Southwark and across London have been jailed for more than thirteen years.

Since their arrest there has been a 50 per cent drop in thefts of the devices, which change pollutants produced by car exhausts into less harmful gases. All of the defendants who were sentenced at Harrow Crown Court last week were from the McDonagh family, most of whom lived in Edmonton. The breadth of their operation was vast, as they targeted vehicles in seventeen London borough’s, including Southwark. Earlier this year, Southwark’s borough commander told the News that tackling such thefts was a priority for the Met. But it was officers from Brent who finally caught them. The Metropolitan Police said the spectacular drop in the number of thefts was entirely down to the arrest of the

McDonaghs in May. The monthly reduction from the most serious month was 320 catalytic converters thefts in April down to 96 in June. Gerard McDonagh, 31, of Sheldon Road in Edmonton was sentenced to three years imprisonment for conspiring to steal catalytic converters from motor vehicles. Martin McDonagh, 37, of Monmouth Road in Edmonton, was given three years, Michael McDonagh, 31, of Saxon Road in Tottenham was given three years, Kevin McDonagh, nineteen, of Hoe Lane in Enfield was given twelve months, Joseph McDonagh, 31, of South Road in Edmonton Green, was given two years, and John McDonagh, 32 of South Eastern Avenue in Edmonton, was sentenced to fifteen months imprisonment for four counts of theft of catalytic converters from motor vehicles.

Motorbike was on ‘stolen plates’ say police By Oliver Pugh

A WOMAN is in critical condition with a serious head injury after she was hit by a motorcycle on Sunday night.

The 30-year-old was rushed to the Royal London Hospital at around 10.15pm accompanied by doctors from London’s Air Ambulance. One of the two men who were on the bike broke both his legs in the accident, while the other ran off. Police said it had been using stolen plates. Detectives are now appealing for any witnesses to come forward. The injured nineteen-year-old male who was on the bike was taken to hospital as a priority, where he was arrested and granted bail to stay in the hospital. The Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “We can confirm police were called to Salter Road, SE16 on Sunday, 9 November 2014 at approximately 2215 hours following a report of a collision between a motorcycle and a

pedestrian. “One of the people on the motorcycle was taken to hospital with two broken legs and another made off from the scene. “The female pedestrian was taken to hospital with a serious head injury and remains in a critical condition. “The motorcycle was on stolen plates.”

Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Catford Traffic Garage are currently investigating and have requested assistance from the public to trace the second male. Anyone with information should contact police on 02082851574 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Council used snoop powers eleven times By Oliver Pugh

oliver@southwarknews.co.uk

SOUTHWARK COUNCIL has used its powers to snoop on members of the public eleven times over the last four years.

The undercover operations were targeted at people suspected of supplying illegal products or selling knives, tobacco and alcohol to kids, according to a report. Councils are able to carry out such investigations using powers granted them under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA). RIPA is the same Act that allowed the Metropolitan Police, and others forces, to access journalists’ phone records and discover the sources of their stories. Southwark Council denied that it had ever delved into residents’ phone records in a similar way but it has been given access to confidential information five times. A spokesperson said: “The council has the power, in certain circumstances, to obtain limited

communications data – typically telephone subscriber details – but this requires judicial approval by a magistrates’ court.” Two people are facing prosecution following these investigations, but the council refused to comment on them. After changes to the law in November 2012, councils were required to get a judge’s approval prior to using covert techniques. Surveillance was also restricted to being used to investigate crimes which attract a six month or more prison sentence, with the exception of the underage sale of alcohol and tobacco. A report presented to Southwark’s Standard’s Committee last week said: “The council’s use of these powers is subject to regular inspection and audit by the Office of the Surveillance Commissioner (OSC) in respect of covert surveillance authorisations under RIPA. “During these inspections, authorisations and procedures are closely scrutinised and Authorising Officers are interviewed by the inspectors.”


Southwark News, Thursday November 13, 2014 By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

A HOSPITAL is struggling to cope with the amount of mental health patients coming to their A&E department since the closure of an emergency mental health clinic seven years ago, it has been revealed.

The emergency room at King’s is “not well set up for the volume and acuity of patients with mental health needs” coming through their doors, according to a report reviewed at a Southwark Council health scrutiny committee meeting this week. The A&E has seen a year on year increase in patients requiring mental health assessments and 3,780 in the last year alone. There was huge public opposition to the closure of the Maudsley Emergency Clinic in 2007 because of a fear that the local A&E services would be overwhelmed and people in mental health crisis would have nowhere suitable to go. MP for Dulwich and West Norwood, Tessa Jowell, who was part of the campaign to save the clinic at the time, recently wrote to the Chief Executive of South London and Maudsley (SLaM) NHS Trust, Dr Matthew Patrick, to raise her concerns about “the disruptive presence in King’s ED of patients with long-term and recurrent mental health problems. “It appears that they now use King’s Emergency Department

(ED) in a similar way to how they used to use the Emergency Clinic at the Maudsley which, of course, is now closed. This is compounding pressure on the already over-stretched King’s ED,” she wrote. After some significant delays, King’s is now in the process of building a mental health assessment suite which will provide a separate space for the year on year increase in mental health patients they are treating. A spokesperson for King’s said: “We regret that the redevelopment of our Emergency Department has taken longer than expected,” as the works to the interior of the A&E have “proved challenging” because it is always open and is “busier than it has ever been.” “We will complete the improvement works, but it may take time,” they added.

MP calls for review of council evictions By Oliver Pugh

oliver@southwarknews.co.uk

SIMON HUGHES has called for an external review of Southwark’s eviction procedures after the council unlawfully evicted a tenant and destroyed his possessions.

It followed a High Court judgment that named three officers who were involved in the eviction, and who tried to cover-up their actions. The victim of the council’s gross neglect, who could be named only as AA, was paid “significant damages” by the council. Southwark has said it would investigate what happened but Mr Hughes questioned why residents should trust the council to be honest about its findings. “There is, it seems to me, a regular discontent, regular unhappiness, a regular view that some Southwark officers can’t be trusted,” he said. “The only way to restore confidence is to have an external review. “For someone outside Southwark Council to come in and do a review of a cross section of

[eviction] cases that they choose,” he said. In response, the council said it was “unclear what any external investigation would find.” Cllr Richard Livingstone, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "We have fully accepted that as a council we got things very wrong when dealing with this person and their possessions and we continue to apologise for any distress we may have caused. “We acted swiftly and took strong disciplinary action against our staff when this came to our attention. "I would like to assure residents that we have also looked closely at our procedures, the circumstances surrounding this case and the judgement, and we will be bringing a report in response to the housing scrutiny committee meeting on 25 November. "Poor treatment of tenants and residents is totally unacceptable and we are revising our eviction procedures accordingly, and we can only hope this one case, as wrong as it was, does not impact on tenants' confidence in the great work being done by our council officers."

If ever there was a case for a collective ‘we told you so’ it’s probably the ridiculous decision to close the Maudsley Emergency Clinic back in 2007 - but no-one will take any pleasure in being proved right about this. Back in 2007, the South London and Maudsley Trust took the decision in the face of widespread opposition in the community, and fears that the nearby King’s A&E department would not be able to cope with demand. Lo and behold, a report seen by Southwark Council’s health scrutiny committee this week has found precisely that, with a year on year increase in patients requiring mental health assessments 3,780 in the last year alone. Put aside the debate about whether an accident and emergency department is the right place for someone with mental health issues to go (surely not). The real question is how so-called experts at SLaM could have taken such a decision - which even your man or woman in the street could tell you was the wrong one. And was this decision influenced more by financial, rather than clinical considerations?

Ban from all bookies

A GAMBLING addict who threw a chair across a Bermondsey bookmakers – smashing a fixed odds betting terminal – has been temporarily banned from all betting shops in the UK.

Jefferey Joyce, 31, was enraged after he was told William Hill in Weston Street would not pay out £700 from what Joyce thought was a winning bet. The bookmaker told him he had placed his £100 stake too late, the court heard. He then started to hit the gaming machine and was warned that if he continued he would not be allowed to place any more bets. The court heard he replied :“You’re not going to like what I’m going to do.” Joyce then picked up the chair and threw it across the room. Police were called and he was arrested and charged with criminal damage to the value of £388, which he admitted on Thursday. His solicitor told the court: “He has a really very serious gambling addiction. It has taken all the money he has got –

A JEWEL thief has been banged up for over five years after he stole £120,000 worth of valuables in a six month crime spree.

The 27-year-old stole nearly £4,000 worth of jewellery from a pawnbrokers in Walworth Road last year when he pretended to be a customer and asked to view some of the goods before grabbing them and running out of the shop. Germain Fofana, of no fixed address, hit Albone Pawnbrokers’ first in September before embarking on a spate of thefts at ten different jewellers across London, ending in June this year. Fofana’s luck ran out when he stole two engagement rings from an Ernest Jones store in Kingston in May. He asked to see the rings up close and when they were given to him he legged it with the jewellery worth over £18,000. But the bungling burglar was in such a rush that

he left his mobile phone behind complete with a nice mug-shot of himself as the screensaver.

Rape trial

PECKHAM: A man will stand trial next year after denying raping and sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman.

Timothy Storey’s case will be heard at Woolwich Crown Court from July 6 after the 34-year-old of Peckham Grove pleaded not guilty to one count of rape, two counts of attempted rape, one count of sexual assault by penetration and one count of sexual assault by touching on October 13. Storey was charged on May 17 after the woman came forward to the police about the alleged offences which are said to have taken place in March of this year.

‘Robbed at gunpoint’ The police were able to launch a public appeal with his selfie, which led to his arrest in July this year. He was then fingered as the culprit in a string of other jewellery thefts from shops and hotels, stealing goods up to the value of £120,000. Fofana was sentenced to a total of five and a half years’ imprisonment for ten counts of theft and three counts of burglary at Woolwich Crown Court on Friday last week. He also asked the court for 32 other theft and burglary matters to be taken into consideration at the sentencing. Detective Constable Adrian Whitewick of the Met’s Flying Squad said: "Fofana targeted a number of stores and posed convincingly as a customer. His actions have caused distress to a significant number of store employees and resulted in considerable financial loss and inconvenience for businesses. He will have time to reflect on this as he serves his sentence."

tens of thousands of pounds, he estimates.” “He has already self-excluded from the betting shops in SE16.” “He wanted to come to court and be banned from all betting shops for life,” he said. Magistrates adjourned the case until November 13 to allow Joyce, of the Dickens estate in Jamaica Road to be assessed by the probation service.

‘Misread the signals’

A LECH, who sexually assaulted a woman on a busy train near Waterloo station, was fined just £395.

Senthil Ravivarman, 41, sat down next to the woman despite them being strangers to each other and there being other empty seats nearby. He rubbed her back when she leant forward, swept her hair to one side, and then stroked the back of her thigh – pulling her skirt up and exposing her bare legs. IT consultant Ravivarman also asked if she wanted to ‘go for a coffee or go on a date”, the court heard.

The assault took place in full view of a witness on July 4, but that person wrongly presumed they were a couple who had had an argument. The woman was upset when she got off the train and reported the incident to police but Ravivarman was not immediately identified. It was only when the victim was on the same train and Ravivarman sat next to her once again that she got off the train, called police, and he was arrested. Ravivarman admitted a charge of intentionally touching a woman aged sixteen or over in a sexual way when she did not consent. When he appeared at Camberwell Magistrates’ Court last Thursday the court heard that the father-of-one claimed he ‘misread the signals’. His barrister told the court: “It has been of significant personal impact to him in terms of explaining the statement to his wife and it is out of character behaviour for him.” Ravivarman, of Mullens Road in Egham in Surrey, was fined £395 and will be supervised for two years by the probation service. He will also be on the sex offenders’ register for the next five years.

The chair of the magistrate panel said: “We’re told that you are remorseful. We’re told that you have been in tears on previous occasions. We’re told you misread the signals. We are far from convinced that that happened.”

PECKHAM: Two men have been charged in connection with an alleged robbery at gunpoint.

On Saturday November 1 the police were called after a 31-year-old man alleged he had been robbed at gunpoint in Peckham High Street at around 10.30pm. Jacob Olatnbosun Akerele,19, of Gwynne Road, SW11 and 20-year-old Hazeem Hassan, a student of Bowditch, SE8, were arrested by police at the bottom of Peckham Rye on Tuesday November 4 with eye witnesses reporting a heavy police presence in the area. The two suspects were then charged on November 6 with robbery and appeared at Camberwell Magistrates Court the same day. The date for their trial has not been set.

They tried to pull it and it fell between the cavity in the wall. “She thought it had been the electrician who had attended the day before.” But when police arrived on June 19 and recovered the camera, they were able to follow its cable into Monnelot’s room. “The victim was distressed - she was shocked,” said Mr Aydin. Police seized Monnelot’s computer and discovered a number of videos of the woman on his hard drive. “One video taken showed the victim taking her clothes off and walking around topless in her room,” said Mr Aydin. Last month Monnerot admitted a single charge of voyeurism – recording another person doing a private act for the purpose of “obtaining sexual gratification”. When he appeared again on Thursday last week he was fined £395 and told to complete 180 hours of unpaid work. He will also be placed on the sex offenders register for the next five years. The court heard that Monnelot, now of Myddletton Street in Farringdon, worked for game developers Future Game of London.

THE GRIEVING FAMILY OF A SINGLE FATHER KILLED IN A CA

By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

‘Knowing that we will never have Chris in our lives again is a pain beyond words’

‘THERE'S ONLY one Chris Foster'."That's what we used to chant," said the brother of the ‘dedicated dad’ stabbed to death last year in Borough High Street, remembering trips home in the football minibus when they were boys.

After the four week trial into Chris’s murder ended last week, the Foster family told the News about how Chris was "an amazing guy” who made fun of everyone, was generous to a fault and whose loss has caused them “pain beyond words.” The last time Tony Foster saw his brother was when they took their daughters out for the day three weeks before his death in November, when he went out for the night with friends and never came home. Chris was killed in a botched gang revenge attack, leaving behind his little girl Christina, now five years old, who was the “centre of his universe.” “When he became a dad he took on that responsibility by himself and he was a great parent,” said Chris’s little brother Mark, who is himself a father of four. “He was proud of his parenting achievements and his bad decorating!” “She was everything to him,” added Chris’s mother, Jean. “Anyone knew Chris, knew everything about Christina. They were like Mowgli and Baloo - they were together all the time,” she said. Little Christina is living with Chris’s parents now and has only just stopped running for the phone every time it rings saying ‘It’s daddy it’s daddy!’. “Having to answer Christina’s questions about how and why upsets us every day,” said Mark. “Spending weeks at the trial has affected her a great deal,” added Jean. “She always thinks I’m going to die when I go to London.” “Losing Chris in the way we did is very hard for us to take,” said Mark. “Having to be made to wait for the post-mortem and then the funeral made this year the worst we have had as a family and knowing that we will never have Chris in our lives again is a pain beyond words. Nothing will ever right this wrong.” For Tony, it is Chris who has kept him afloat through it all. “I feel like he’s still here with me. If I feel down he’ll just give me a slap and tell me to man up and make me laugh,” he said. Tony and Chris were inseparable as kids and friends called them 'twin' because they looked so alike. “It was like I got to be him some days," said Tony, who enjoyed being confused with his brother because he was so well liked. “I’d get this really nice welcome and I’d think, ‘I’ll enjoy this for a minute and I won’t tell them I’m not Chris’.” The pair did everything together

Chris Foster was the “life and soul of the party and everyone loved him,”

The three brothers celebrate Tony’s eighth birthday

growing up on the Four Squares Estate in Bermondsey, where some of the defendants in the trial also grew up. Chris got himself a job at an insurance broker in the City when he left school and when Tony needed a job, big brother Chris stepped in and convinced his manager to give his job to Tony and he got himself a new one at Axa. In the fast-moving City of the ‘90s, they both started their new jobs the following Monday. "From that moment I saw a different world," said Tony, now 34. "From working in a warehouse to working in the City. That was just amazing. We knew absolutely everyone.” "We would meet up at seven and we were together from that moment and every weekend we’d go the Old Kent Road or the West End," said Tony. Chris got the nickname 'chicken'

down at the Frog and Nightgown in the Old Kent Road because he would break out into the 'chicken dance' every time his favourite tune came on. “Chris would get up there dancing and then the party’d get started. It would just make the party if he was there," said Tony. Chris, who used to call his mum, ‘mother-bear’, was a man with a big heart and a wicked sense of humour, according to Tony, who was often on the receiving end of his jokes. "He was really good at pool and when we had a game he used to say he could see a rainbow because I had so many balls left on the table. 'There’s bungle, there’s zippy,' he’d say,” Tony recalled, laughing. “He was a tormentor,” agreed Chris’s mum, Jean. “He would come in and torment me and take the Mickey out of anything, but in a nice

way,” she said. As a difficult Christmas approaches for the Fosters, Tony remembers Chris's generosity especially at this time of year. "He went round all his friends who had kids and gave them all presents. That’s the way he celebrated Christmas, by making sure everyone else was OK. "If he ever bought anything and someone liked it he would just give it to them," added Tony, who sometimes worried Chris was too generous, leaving himself short-changed. "He put a pound in a slot machine once and he won £25 so he bought everyone a pint and a double Jack Daniels,” said Tony. “It cost him £38. I said ‘you’ve lost out’ and he said ‘not to me’.If he could make someone happy that was more important," said Tony. 'Respect is more important than

money', Chris told Tony once. "That was his motto he lived by," said Tony, who said his kindness did not go unnoticed. "If Chris needed anything he’d be covered because people thought he was a brilliant guy.” “He was a bit gullible, but good people do get taken for granted,” added Jean, remembering a time Chris was asked for a fiver on London Bridge for a cab home. He only had a twenty so he gave that instead. “He never stopped helping people,” said Jean. “The amount of people that have come forward to give money to Christina because of what a lovely person Chris was - I don’t think they would do that for everybody. “I was proud of him. He was as good boy. Everyone I’ve met has reinforced what a lovely person he was. I never realised just how much he was loved,” she added.

POLICE STILL HUNTING MISSING SUSPECTS IN CHRIS FOSTER CASE

Four face jail as trial finishes

CCTV footage from the alleyway outside St Christopher’s Inn shows the moment Chris was stabbed

By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk POLICE ARE still hunting two missing suspects in the Chris Foster case, an investigating officer confirmed to the News this week. One man is still to be identified and the other they hope to extradite back to Britain after he is said to have fled abroad following the incident. Four men are facing “substantial prison sentences”, according to investigating officer Detective Inspector Rob Pack, after the four week trial concluded last week into the botched revenge attack, which put a single father in an early grave. One man pleaded guilty to Chris’s murder and faces life in prison at the sentencing hearing likely to take place tomorrow, while three others pleaded guilty to conspiracy to cause GBH to another man. While the unsuspecting 34-year-old was enjoying a drink with his best mate, Danny Murphy, at St Christopher’s Inn, a gang of seven men can be seen on CCTV just after 11.30pm gathering in a passage nearby, their faces hidden by hoods and scarves. Witnesses told the police that the gang were carrying a baseball bat and the murder weapon – a fourteen inch knife - when they entered the alleyway outside the pub in single file. “They clock someone they think is the person they are looking for, then the second person in the line pulls the knife and stabs him in the back,” said DI Pack. During the Old Bailey trial the gang were described as being "pumped-up" with one of them shouting ''Who f***ing wants it?'' before Danny heard Chris say ''Why did you do that?'' in an attack he described to the jury as “completely out of the blue.” The men at the front of the line then saw their intended victim, who had allegedly slashed one of the gang in the face months earlier, run away and they gave chase. Not one of them stopped to see if Chris was in trouble as he lay

dying in Danny’s arms. Little over an hour later Chris was pronounced dead at the Royal London Hospital, but the bungled revenge attack was already unravelling on the seven. They had chased their intended victim to Belushi’s nightclub, where the bouncers had hidden him. The doormen

gave details to the police, and from this evidence a suspect list was drawn up. The jury were shown mobile phone records of defendant Billy Dove, who had seen the ‘other man’, said to be Harry Saunders, close to St Christopher's Inn that night. The court heard how Dove then called Ayden

Salih, who it is believed was attacked by Saunders in September last year. “There was an incident between Salih and another person. They were looking for an opportunity to seek revenge for that. They were clearly intent on doing harm to the person they were looking for,” said DI Pack. “It was an absolute

devastating travesty that Chris Foster lost his life that night.” “There was a degree of planning and sophistication here but someone has still been found guilty of murder and others of conspiracy to grievous bodily harm and I suspect they will be receiving substantial prison sentences for that,” he added. Six men were initially charged with the murder, but not all of them were suspected of being in the alleyway that night. After Aytach Lisani pleaded guilty to murder on the first day of the trial, in what DI Pack described as a “complete surprise” to the police, the charges against the other five were reduced to conspiracy to grievous bodily harm to Harry Saunders. Three pleaded guilty and the other two were acquitted on Friday. There are still two men at large, who the police suspect were in the alleyway that night but DI Pack is determined to bring them to justice. Ayden Salih, who was alleged attacked by Harry Saunders, fled abroad after the killing and police are hoping to extradite him back. The police are still to establish the other missing suspect identity. Aytach Lisani, 33, who now lives in Sir Francis Way, Brentwood, will be sentenced for murder at The Old Bailey this week. His brother Ali Lisani, 38, of Nevendon Road, Basildon, will also be sentenced for conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm to Harry Saunders alongside Billy Dove, 30 of Setchell Way, Bermondsey and Rocky Djelal, 34 of Layard Square, Bermondsey. Ricky Huggins, 30, of Dunlop Place, Bermondsey, and Mohammed Aalamani, 30, of Arden Crescent, Canary Wharf, were both acquitted of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm to Harry Saunders on Friday last week. Joanna Stevens, 33 of Frean Street, Bermondsey, and Michael Gore, 55 of Manor Estate, Bermondsey were also acquitted of perverting the course of justice.

Queues of spectators to see free £58,000 display By Oliver Pugh

oliver@southwarknews.co.uk

MORE THAN 33,000 people flocked to see Southwark’s fireworks on Guy Fawkes’ Night, but some were trapped in ‘dangerous’ queues to get in when the display finished.

Huge numbers praised the £58,000 pyrotechnic show in Southwark Park, which was one of the only free displays on the night. But queues outside the park were not marshalled and became ‘shambolic’ and ‘dangerous’, according to some. Timi Samples, 48, feared her wheelchair bound daughter would be trampled by the impatient crowds as they waited to get in. “I’m surprised no one was killed or squashed to death,” Timi said. “It was really scary.” “There were people jumping off the concrete slabs on to us and our children. People just got fed up queuing.” Timi and her family were pinned in a corner by the crowd and had to ask for help from a policeman who was standing at the gate in Southwark Park Road. “He said [the organisation] was

absolutely appalling,” said Timi. “I just wanted to go home but I couldn’t – I had to stay there until the fireworks finished.” Ian Rutter, who was also in the queue, said it was “a bit shambolic”. “People were climbing over the fence to get in,” said Ian. Cllr Dora Dixon Fyle, cabinet member

for adult care, arts and culture, apologised. She said: "Last week's free firework event was the most popular to date, with over 33,000 people attending. “We had over 150 security staff, volunteer stewards and police officers, on the night ensuring people’s safety was paramount, as large crowds were predicted given that we were one of the only free firework displays in London. “We planned accordingly; opening the gates two hours ahead of the display start time to ease congestion at the entrances to the park. "When an event is as popular as this, it takes time to get people in and out safely. “We worked hard to do this, but apologise if anyone experienced discomfort on entering or exiting the park and hope that it did not spoil anyone's enjoyment of the display. We really welcome all feedback to help us plan future events in order to offer the best experience possible." "I am pleased that the event was reported as incident free and we've had some really great feedback, with nine out of ten people who responded rating the event four or five out of five."

Sculptures show horrors of wartime injuries By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

A SERIES of disturbing life-size sculptures of soldiers with horrific facial injuries is going on display at the Florence Nightingale Museum to mark the centenary.

And The Band Played On, by artist Eleanor Crook, consists of five figures from different wars in history who have all had reconstructive plastic surgery to try to rebuild their faces after they were injured in battle. Each one bears documented injuries

from the Crimean War, the First World War and conflicts still ongoing today The sculptures are dressed in authentic military uniforms from the period and are holding old battered brass band instruments as if they are in a ghoulish marching parade. Natasha McEnroe, Director of the Florence Nightingale Museum, says: “It is a record of the remarkable medical breakthroughs that often occur in the theatre of war, especially those involving facial injuries. It is a powerful piece, both incredibly moving and difficult to look at – a

reminder that war should be remembered but not glorified.” Artist Eleanor Crook said the exhibition is a commemoration of the “amazing technical inventiveness of surgeons and nurses and the stoicism and endurance of the servicemen and women who underwent, and are undergoing, experimental operations.” And The Band Played On is open daily from 10am to 5pm at the Florence Nightingale Museum in Lambeth Palace Road. Adults cost £7 and children and concessions get in for £4.80.

Don’t let slow broadband hold back your business ADVERTORIAL

Slow broadband isn’t just annoying: it can mean the difference between a thriving business and one that simply doesn’t work properly. Businesses in London have the chance to upgrade from a standard, slower connection to a superfast service with vouchers worth up to £3000. But time is running out – the government-funded broadband connection voucher scheme closes on 31st March 2015. Small and medium-sized businesses and social enterprises are eligible for the vouchers that can be used to pay to install a superfast connection. Many businesses in London, and across the country, have already received their vouchers and are feeling the benefits of their new broadband connection. Businesses like video production house Kinamo. Kinamo’s business means that it is constantly uploading videos for its clients to review - and uploading again after each new round of editorial changes has been made. That’s huge amounts of video data each week. “Our reaction time has to be really quick,” explains Kinamo’s other cofounder Phil Doherty. The slow broadband in their new office forced Powley and Doherty to plan their days around ensuring uploads actually happened. “It was hideous,” Powley recalls.

But they had done their homework before moving in. Powley contacted Optimity, an internet service provider that had what he describes as “the perfect solution.” Kinamo used broadband connection vouchers to install Optimity’s wireless solution which gave Kinamo a dedicated connection. “What had taken us eight hours to upload now took us ten minutes,” says Doherty. It’s not just that businesses can send and receive files more quickly. A better broadband connection can help businesses access the cloud more quickly and easily and increase profits by offering better services to more satisfied customers. It can improve customers’ experience with faster communication. You don’t have to wait for a quiet time to send big files. And it’s much simpler for businesses with a superfast connection to keep up with and install the latest technology – futureproofing themselves and making sure they keep up with their customers’ demands.

It’s easy to apply. Visit www.connectionvouchers.co.uk and choose from one of our off the shelf pre-registered packages or fill in an application online. Once approved your connection will normally be installed within a few weeks. If you opt for a wireless connection it could up and running in a matter of days.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY AND ARMISTICE DAY 2014

By Oliver Pugh

oliver@southwarknews.co.uk

HUNDREDS OF people came together to lay wreaths of poppies at the foot of the borough’s war memorials for Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day.

The main service on Sunday was opened with a parade in Borough High Street by the London Irish Rifles. Other services were held at the Soviet War memorial in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Dulwich Hamlet FC, and West Lane in Bermondsey. The first on Sunday was held in Old Jamaica Road, a memorial that had been moved from storage especially for the event. Millwall FC marked the occasion before the game against Brentford on Saturday, when war veterans were joined by injured troops at The Den. Personnel from Headley Court rehabilitation centre were given a guard of honour by the two sets of players ahead of kick-off. Lions stars wore a commemorative camouflage kit during the match but they could not cap the occasion with a win as they lost 3-2. Over ÂŁ20,000 has been raised for Headley Court since the club made 1,500 of the limited edition shirts available for sale. Manager Ian Holloway, who last week visited the poppies at the Tower of London, revealed he would be framing his shirt.

60 years on and veteran finally gets his medal Southwark News, Thursday November 13, 2014

By Oliver Pugh

oliver@southwarknews.co.uk

IT MIGHT HAVE been sixty years after Cpl Tom Jenkins came face to face with the barrel of an Egyptian tank, but when he finally got his medal on Remembrance Sunday the memories came flooding back.

Tom was just 22 when in 1953 he was flown into Egypt with the East Surrey Regiment to defend the area around the Suez Canal. His deployment was part of the biggest mobilisation of troops in peace-time, as Britain responded to attacks on an army garrison and a military coup. Nationalistic fervour was rising in Egypt and the canal – vitally important for British shipping and oil – was under threat. Other than officers, veterans of the tour were not awarded medals until 2010, when the government agreed they should be recognised for their bravery with the General Service Medal. After six decades and thanks to some dogged work by his daughter-in-law, the proud 81-year-old was formally presented with his medal on Sunday at the Royal British Legion in Braganza Street, Walworth. “We was put in there to stop them coming out of Egypt,” said Tom. [Egypt’s president] Nasser was pushing it. He wanted the canal and he started getting troops together. We’d found out about it.” While based in Tel el Kabir Tom would regularly patrol the British base’s seventeen mile perimeter fence in Land Rovers, to stop the locals from digging tunnels into the camp and to keep the Egyptian militia at bay. Living in a tent in the desert, he had to wear a fly swat on his belt and each morning at muster parade – along with all 700 soldiers in the Battalion – had to produce 25 dead flies to their regimental

sergeant major. His most vivid memory of the tour was eighteen-months in, when just as a Russian-made T32 tank aimed its barrel at his Land Rover, a peace settlement was agreed between Egypt and Britain. “We saw some movement up in front of us,” said Tom. “Our troop commander said something was going on, it didn’t look right.” “All of a sudden the lead tank turned to face us. I thought ‘this guy is going to fire’. The gun barrel came up and the hatch came open. “All we had was rifles. No heavy weapons and no automatic weapons, just .303 rifles,” said Tom. “What could we do with rifles against them?” “Then the order came through to stand down – don’t move, don’t do anything,” he said. “He must have got the same message as what we got.” “It was very lucky. One wrong move could have been disaster.” After the peace deal, the British bases were closed and the East Surrey Regiment sailed back to England. Simon Hughes MP, who presented the medal, said: “I was honoured to be asked to present the General Service Medal to Tom Jenkins on Remembrance Sunday. “Our brave servicemen and women should always be recognised for their service - so it was good to be able at last to honour Tom, a long-term Southwark resident, on Remembrance Sunday this year.”

Youngsters record official charity single with Gareth Malone’s star line-up By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

KIDS FROM a Camberwell estate have stood alongside household names and celebrities in Gareth Malone’s new All Star Choir, to help raise money for Children in Need.

Eleven young people from the Blue Elephant Youth Theatre based on the Wyndham and Comber Estate also went to record the official Children In Need single, Wake Me Up, at the famous Abbey Road studios. The lucky eleven got to share a mic with the likes of Gavin and Stacey star, Alison Steadman, EastEnders’ Nitin Ginatra and Strictly Come Dancing Queen of Mean, Craig Revel Horwood. “This has been such a wonderful opportunity,” said Blue Elephant’s Participation Director Jo Sadler-Lovett,

who has been with them each step of the way. “I have seen each young person flourish and develop an enormous sense of self-worth and pride in a talent that they did not initially know they had. “Every single one of them has made huge personal progress and they will carry this new found confidence forward with them, whatever that future may hold.” A camera crew has been following choir master Gareth Malone in his quest to find and audition members of his celeb-filled choir and get them ready for recording and performing the Children in Need single live on the BBC appeal show tomorrow night. The kids at Blue Elephant in Bethwin Road, were asked to join the All Star Choir because the theatre has been funded by Children in Need for the past seven years.

WALWORTH

By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

AFTER A year and a half drying out, the Walworth Town Hall is almost ready for the next stage of its restoration to begin.

A recent visit by the Walworth Society to the Grade II listed building, which was devastated by fire and water damage in April last year, revealed the extent of the devastation to the historic interior. But the council remains

optimistic that through painstaking restoration work over the last year making the building safe and secure, the Southwark treasure can be brought back to public use with many of its original features in place. The News reported last week that the 1860s community asset was recently put on English Heritage’s at risk register because of the extensive damage done to the former council chamber and the roof. At a meeting of the Walworth Society

last week Southwark project officer Jillian Houghton said the council was almost ready to receive design bids from three architecture firms on how to use the space in the combined Town Hall and Newington Library to accommodate a new library, a registry office and a Southwark museum. Those designs will then be made public at which point everyone will be invited to say what they think and suggest any changes to inform the final design, which would be undertaken by

the winning firm. Cllr Mark Williams, Southwark’s cabinet member for regeneration, planning and transport, said: "I am very pleased that initial work is taking place to ensure this beautiful Listed building, particularly the west wing, is protected and restored while the council continues to plan for the future of Walworth Town Hall and Newington Library. We will continue to consult with the local community as we move forward."

No to a local tribute to Max Bygraves

I DON’T understand why Max Bygraves’ son is campaigning for a 200 flower tribute to be placed in Southwark Park in memory of his father.

I have got no doubt that Max Bygraves lived in poverty in two rooms with his parents and his siblings. My mother, her parents and five siblings also lived in two rooms, and shared a toilet with four other families along the landing, as did many other families in Bermondsey. As his son stated Max went from rags to riches while many families were left living in these circumstances. So did Mr. Bygraves come back to Bermondsey and do anything with his millions, for example setting up some kids’ clubs or ensuring that some of these children had a little Christmas

‘One of us’ stole from the dead

They show it in their letters to the paper and in conversations around the borough. I also remember the blame being put squarely on the immigrant population under the false hope, or belief, that not 'one of us' could ever stoop so low as to steal from graves, or to melt down sculptures that have been created for the community and loved by the community. Well now we find that this lowest of the low crime has actually been aided and abetted by 'one of us', a Joseph Collier ("Brazen Scrap Dealer Who Bought Stolen Memorial Plaques"). I wonder if his friends and family, who surely were as outraged as us when reading of the "scum" who committed these heinous acts, are supporting him now. Or are they now making excuses for him? And just as bad as his vile crimes against decency is the paltry sentence handed out by a judge who should be reflecting the feelings of the people: FIFTEEN months! Some victims of crimes are allowed to give "Impact Statements" to the courts to show just how much the crime has affected their lives. I think the judge should have read this paper to see how much these types of crimes have have affected lives, because you have always done a good job of getting the victims to give an opinion whenever something happened. Fifteen months is not enough. It is not nearly enough. Scumbags like Joseph Collier should be made to feel the wrath of his peers and the community in which he lives, and such a short time in prison does not do that.

No to a church!

THERE IS a real fear about the consequences of Southwark Council re-siting Crossways Church on our estate.

Apart from the feeling that the land is most suitable for housing, which is badly needed, we are scared at the impact this multi-plex church will have on our community. Over years, we have seen amenities removed piecemeal, and once again we are suffering at the hand of an illconceived scheme courtesy of Southwark's regeneration department. We are scared about the constant use of a church which prides itself on renting out rooms to many agencies, at all hours, bringing visitors to our homes at all hours. The site is too small to accommodate parking, forcing more cars onto the single road that serves our estate. Southwark's regeneration staff and Rev Stevenson appear split on the hours of use, but have pushed ahead with the planning application in order to free the current site simply to allow the construction of private flats on the Heygate. We have written to church elders to ask them if they are aware of the problems in store if this lunatic scheme goes ahead. I will let you know of their response. Graham Neale, Secretary Draper Residents' Association

I was knocked down

I WAS knocked down by a car this week.

My bike was a write-off. I was lucky. Donnachadh McCarthy pays respect to the “Unknown Victim of Traffic Violence” as a symbolic reminder of those that haven’t been so lucky. Motorists don’t want to risk hitting cyclists. Far better to crank up a gear in creating “safe shared transit corridors” for cyclists and pedestrians, as Abbey Taubin suggested (6/11/14 letter). Becca Thackray, Herne Hill, Lambeth Green Party

Prioritising motorists? WE ARE at a turning point in planning for the future of our city, especially in the face of anticipated growth.

In light of this, we must look carefully at whether we can either continue to prioritise motorised vehicles - with associated air pollution, congestion and inefficient use of road space - or we can embrace more sustainable forms of transport like cycling. TfL's plans for segregated cycle superhighways east/west and north/south through central London are to be applauded. They will help make cycling much safer, encourage even more people to cycle and improve the quality of life in our city. We are writing in support particuarly of the north/south route where we are currently working with partners to deliver 24 development projects along Blackfriars Road and at the Elephant and Castle, delivering in excess of 10,000 jobs, 6500 new homes, 450,000 square feet of retail space and 1,000 hotel rooms. We recognise the enormous benefits the TfL scheme will bring, not least with 3,000 sqm of new pedestrian space, but also safer routes for our current and

future residents, workers and visitors to cycle on. We call on TfL to continue with the delivery of the new segregated cycle superhighways and look forward to cycling on them soon. Councillor Mark Williams , Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning & Transport

UKIP look locally

I NOTE the toing and froing in the letters page on the current nonevent that is the United Kingdom Independence Party in Southwark.

I note the latest wildly uninteresting debate on the EU executed in that crashing-Eurobore style so beloved of UKIP's old guard. This will not win them much new support. What will help them is evidence the mainstream parties are more interested in trivial nonsense and irritating their own supporters than real issues like jobs and local services. Two good examples of this are the poorly executed 20mph policy and proposed smoking ban in outdoor spaces. This sort of thing may appeal to a small minority of petty political activists that see their mission in life as saving us all from ourselves. It's pretty irrelevant for everyone else and bloody annoying for a significant minority. And that makes it cat-nip for the sort of anti-establishment populism, on which UKIP is currently building a growing, albeit fickle base. They are the current bucket of choice for anyone who thinks people paid to ensure local services are properly run, should have better things to do than fine them for blowing smoke and driving faster than a horse. When facing that kind of political trend, it is perhaps unwise to keep kicking the bucket. Andy Mayer, Rotherhithe

A&E is for serious emergencies like strokes and heart attacks. If you’re feeling under the weather with a runny nose, sore throat, tickly cough or diarrhoea you can treat yourself at home with a well-stocked medicine cabinet and some rest. You can also visit your local pharmacy. Many people forget that their local pharmacist is a highly trained and trusted source of health advice. Pharmacists have longer opening hours than GP practices, you don’t need an appointment to see one, and most have a consultation area where you can speak privately. If you’re suffering from a more painful or long term illness – like a skin condition, back ache or coughs that go on for weeks – your GP surgery can give you advice over the phone. You can also speak to a GP when your practice is closed. The GP out-of-hours service in Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham is available through the night from 6.30pm – 8am. It’s easy to use – just phone 020 8693 9066. If you can’t remember the number, call your GP surgery and you’ll be redirected. If you have an urgent and severe but non-life-threatening illness or condition like a wound, cut or sprain – then you can attend the urgent care centre at Guy’s Hospital. Last year you might have seen posters on buses and bus stops encouraging people to think twice about going to A&E, and even not to go if they don’t need to be there. As a result, we know Southwark residents are starting to make different choices and going to A&E less. We are running the same campaign again this year to build on this positive change. Last winter, 1800 patients people a day attended A&E in south east London. Based on national surveys, we know that about 800 of them could have got quicker and more appropriate treatment elsewhere. If these people found more appropriate treatment then A&E staff would be free to treat people in lifethreatening situations. It’s likely you’ll have a better experience too – by choosing the right service you could avoid sitting for hours in a waiting room. You could even have a shorter and easier journey - your nearest pharmacy or GP practice is probably just a walk away. Pick up a ‘not always A&E’ leaflet at your local GP surgery or pharmacy or go to www.nhs.uk for more advice on which health service is right for you.

Make mine Memphis

BEVERLEY KNIGHT absolutely rips it up in the UK premiere of this TONY Award winning musical put together by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan and Joe DiPietro, who totally capture the feel of the music from the 50s and early 60s, making every song sound like an unheard B Side that must have slipped by as you bopped away to the hits of the day, writes Michael Holland... Memphis tells the true story of how ‘race’ music was kept underground until determined white boys managed to get it played on mainstream radio, so you get to hear the N-Word and examples of extreme – and tolerated - racism, and see ‘white crackers coming down here to steal music from the black folk’. One of the best songs is, ‘Everybody Wants To Be Black On A

There is a love story threaded through this historical narrative that highlights the ignorance of the time, but the major player is the music and how it overcame the barriers set by those who knew what they did was wrong but did not want to accept it. The characters in Memphis have been built up from amalgamations of real people who were around at the time, and the story is hung on a broad spine of real events to give the aura of authenticity. And anyone who knows this history will be thankful for its telling in such a way. The music is great, the choreography and dancing is fantastic and the performances are faultless.

Even so, Beverley Knight is superb; Jason Pennycooke surprises and astounds, and Killian Donnelly astounds and surprises as the ‘stupid white boy’ who makes it all happen.

WE'VE SEEN them on Saturday nights for several years as stars of 'Strictly Come Dancing.' But watching Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace live is incredible whether they perform beautiful elegant numbers or breathtaking solos. When they are on the stage it's a challenge to notice anything else as they divinely fill the floor, writes Susan Hallissey...

Set in 1940s’ Hollywood as a film noir pastiche, wisecracking detective Tommy Dubrowski (Teddy Kempner) narrates this weak vehicle for Flavia and Vincent's dancing. When Tony (Vincent) is framed for the murder of Sadie's (Flavia) cheating partner we are in for no real surprises with this plot...But that's okay because we have glitter, sequins, rumbas and foxtrots galore! Femme fatale Lana Clemenza (Abbie Osmon) is ditzy and feisty in equal measure...She also wore a gown that my friend and I lusted after! 'Lana' and 'Tommy' provided the storyline and the 'gags.' As Osmon belted out a few big numbers I warmed to her commitment and comic timing. Listen out for Oliver Darley as The Voice.

Strictly dancing

story for a second part? Fortunately Act Two packed a real punch from the moment the curtain was raised! The energy was palpable. The prison scene dance, using cell bars, was just a warm up for Flavia's daring solo. Stunningly she fell from the stairs into the arms of the waiting 'gangsters.' Each number dazzled and with the finale approaching, the much anticipated Tango. No disappointment here! With kicks and flicks and I-don't-knowwhats, they showed such passion and artistry. What energy - how do they do that? Flavia and Vincent are a powerhouse and the audience gave a deservedly standing ovation. Truly magical!

Girls like these

A NAKED photo of a girl called Scarlett, does the rounds of a school in Evan Placey’s Girls Like That. She is shamed and shunned by those she thought of as friends. A sadly familiar tale in this age of relentless social media but told in 'Girls Like That’ with freshness and subtlety, writes Katie Kelly...

The story begins in the playground of an elite school called St. Helens when the characters are five years old. The gentle humour of the scene fairly quickly turns darker, when one child muses on the way that chickens establish a literal pecking order, and will kill, if they see blood. As the plot moves backwards and forwards in time from the incident at secondary school through the history that the group of friends have together, there is a sense of impending tragedy right from the beginning. Themes of friendship, feminism, loyalty and bullying are all explored in this performance. My initial concern that it might feel a bit like a PHSE lesson were quickly dispelled by the intelligence of the writing and quality of the acting. In this small cast there is not a single weak member. Particular credit goes to the actress who performed the series of monologues of women from different ages which were

interspersed through the story. Though these were all extremely engaging, we did begin to wonder what purpose they were serving.

T

o get a view of anything in this built up city you have to get up high these days. In the busy streets of Peckham, the favourite looking out point is the top of the multi-storey car park, from which the views over London are so treasured that there is currently a petition to try to stop high rise blocks being built in front of it, writes Ameliia Burr...

Local historian Derek Kinrade recently discovered that the same views were treasured hundreds of years ago when Peckham was a different place – one of green pastures and rolling hills, a place of natural beauty which was an inspiration to writers through the ages. In his book, ‘A Tour through the Whole Island of Great Britain’ in the 1720s, Daniel Defoe wrote of this vista saying: “…Looking north [from Peckham], behold, to crown all, a fair prospect of the whole city of London itself; the most glorious sight without exception, that the whole world at present can show”. He goes on to say: “It is impossible to view these countries from any rising ground and not be ravish’d with the delightful prospect: For example,

suppose you take your view from the little rising hills about Clapham, if you look to the east, there you see the pleasant villages of Peckham and Camberwell, with some of the finest dwellings about London. Defoe lists several examples, describing them as “the palaces of the British nobility and gentry”. “Looking north,” he continues, “behold, to crown all, a fair prospect of the whole city of London itself; the most glorious sight without exception, that the whole world at present can show.” Defoe explains that these “houses of retreat” were “gentlemen’s summerhouses”, or holiday homes, where they would go to have a break from the hustle and bustle to get a breath of fresh air and relax in the summertime. Before this countryside idyll was transformed by the industrial revolution, it is documented that the poet William Blake would roam these grassy knolls. He would walk for hours as a boy in the relative wilderness of South East London. In 1907 Blake's biographer, Alexander Gilchrist, detailed William Blake

the lone child’s wanderings: "A mile or two further through the ‘‘large and pleasant village’ of Camberwell with its grove (or avenue) and famed prospect, arose the sweet hill and vale and ‘sylvan wilds’ of rural Dulwich, a ‘village’ even now retaining some semblance to its former self." But it was Peckham where he had one of his first 'visions'. In fact, the famous poet became known for these inspirational hallucinations, which began on the Rye. Gilchrist recounts this profound encounter as follows: "On Peckham Rye (by Dulwich Hill) it is, as he will in after years relate, that while quite a child, of eight or ten perhaps, he has his ‘first vision.’ Sauntering along, the boy looks up and sees a tree filled with angels, bright angelic wings bespangling every bough like stars." But when he returns home to recount his heavenly vision to his family, he is said to have "narrowly escaped a thrashing" from his father for telling lies. Today, behind the playground on Goose Green in East Dulwich, about 200 yards from the North-West corner of Peckham Rye, there is a mural dedicated to Blake's experience entitled "William Blake's Vision of Angels". It was commissioned in 1993 by the Dulwich Festival and painted by the artist Stan Peskett, but sadly six years later it was vandalised and then stolen brick by brick. Whether Blake had his first touch of divine inspiration or his first hallucination, it was inspired by the idyllic beauty of Peckham Rye, also said to be a muse to the great poet John Donne and the playwright Oliver Goldsmith.

The picturesque Homestall Farm, bought by the Vestry and demolished in 1908 to become part of the popular Peckham Rye Park.

Peckham Rye Park was opened on May 14, 1894 and was so popular, it needed to be expanded ten years later.

As far back as the Domesday Book in 1087 Peckham’s rolling hills are recorded in the history books. It is here called 'Pecheha' which is thought to be and Anglo Saxon term meaning 'village among the hills', the old word for hill being 'peac' and 'ham' meaning village. Rye is thought to be the Old English word for 'brook' and would have been named after the little river Peck that once flowed across the Rye. Most of the land in Peckham was used for growing crops and fruit and by the 18th century, the area had quite a reputation for its melons, figs and grapes. As it was so close to the centre

of London, some of this produce was destined for the Royal dinner table. The area grew in popularity from the sixteenth century onwards and became quite the place to live for the well to do. The biggest change came during the Victorian industrial revolution when new businesses moved. With the railway in 1865 came speculative builders and the green fields, which had inspired some history’s greatest writers, were lost forever.

With thanks to Derek Kinrade and the Friends of Peckham Rye Park for sharing their research.

BUSSEY BUILDING, 133 RYE LANE, PECKHAM, SE15 4ST PHONE: 020 7732 3176 WWW.BANHBANH.COM

By Amelia Burr amelia@southwarknews.co.uk

ESCAPING THE driving November rain and the hustle and bustle of Rye Lane we made our way through the secret passageway to the hidden world of the Bussey Building and descended down the stone steps into the basement bar.

A welcoming, not-too-hipster hotspot awaited us with soft lighting, mellow music and beautiful women in oversized jumpers serving cocktails in old tin cans. Rye Wax, an old school vinyl shop, opened up in this stone cellar earlier this year, defying the digital revolution to remind nostalgic music lovers of the joy of 12" cover artwork and that sound when the needle hits a record. The bar came with it so you can sit with a beer and enjoy the handpicked selections of the shop DJ, that is unless you ask him to play a record of your choice. They were all out of Dolly Parton so we took a seat on the comfy sofa and soaked up the relaxed atmosphere of chatter and laughter in the low pink light. Bành Bành, is a recent addition to Rye Wax, offering revellers something a bit different in the way of bar snacks or pub grub. This Vietnamese family enterprise has just four things on their menu, which they think encapsulate their grandma's home cooking and the essence of Vietnamese street food. Before we tuck in to our summer rolls, rice paper batons stuffed with salad and meat or fish, granddaughter Anna explains how important food is in Vietnamese culture. "Food is so central there,” she said. “When you meet a Vietnamese person they ask, ‘have you eaten?’ and then ‘are you well?’. This kind of food is everywhere over there," she explains, adding that for every item on their menu there would be an entire street of food carts dedicated to selling that one dish in cities and towns back home. Anna sums up her national cuisine as “light and fragrant”, not as spicy as Thai food and healthier than the East Asian options on our high streets. Immediately I wonder if 'light' is a by-word for bland and dip my summer roll in the Hoisin sauce with managed expectations. But Anna was bang on. Fragrant is exactly the right word to describe this cuisine. The fresh herbs brighten up each dish with their subtle flavours bringing out the

natural taste and vibrancy of the stripped back ingredients. Even though vegetarians are offered tofu instead of meat or fish, the mini-menu is reduced further for non-meat eaters and would sadly miss out the highlight for me – the Chicken Pho. With the start of a cold brewing, this warming, delicately spiced chicken noodle broth was just what the doctor ordered and was indeed the “comfort food” Anna had said she wanted to produce. Anna and her brothers and sisters were born and bred in Peckham but her grandma was a chef in Vietnam in the ‘40s. “Part of doing this is keeping her food and her spirit alive in our family,” said Anna. “It’s the kind of food we grew up eating.” This recent venture has pulled the five children back to their family home in Peckham with them all juggling day jobs to serve the food of their family’s kitchen to the public. “It’s a real family affair,” said Anna. “It’s been passed down each generation. The recipes were passed down from my grandma to my mum and then on to us. “We’ve kept it really simple and focused on those things that we really love eating.” As someone who has often been searching in a hurry for something quick and healthy to eat in Peckham,

Bành Bành is just the ticket. It wouldn’t bother me to come back here knowing I would be ordering something I had already tried because it’s tasty, healthy and it does the job. I had no idea what staple Vietnamese food was before I tried it here, but I could definitely get used to it as my new cheese and pickle sandwich and I will definitely be going back for some more Chicken Pho as the nights draw in and the rain keeps coming down.

A MAN of the match display from centre half Bruno Silva helped Docklands come from behind in order to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

That run now extends to eight games but the Southwark side

were made to fight all the way after falling behind in the first minute on Sunday. Ronnie Simpson then popped up with an overhead kick, which was saved superbly, only for the rebound to fall to Archie Clowes who slotted home the equaliser. Half time changes only saw the home side fall behind once more but Docklands finally found their feet particularly when Kevin Mockey moved up front having started the game

www.southwarknews.co.uk/sport

on the wing. Mockey bagged another brace of goals, to add to a double he scored the previous week, once the switch was made. But the Bermondsey side also has a lot to thank Silva for on the day after he proved once again to be an outstanding acquisition in the close season. Bruno Silva put in a man of the match display at centre half for Dockland U16

from last season. “But ever since then they are slowly getting back into form. They've played seven games in all competitions and have won six and drawn one, which is a lot better than I expected after seeing six players move on at the end of last season. “I knew it was going to be a lot harder as we were basically rebuilding but I'm

Osayande try sneaks win in mud By Duncan Wauchope

SOUTHWARK TIGERS under tens side overcame Mitcham, and the muddiest of conditions, thanks to a late try from Itoya Osayande.

In monsoon type weather away in Mitcham the mud loving Burgess Park club made their rivals pay for an early handling error. Thomas Greenwood ripped the ball off his opponent and headed for the try line. He got past all Mitcham players in his path and scored a spectacular try to open the scoring. The home side did not take things lying down however, and with a touch of good fortune, they scored a try of their own to level things up. However a good passing move, made in treacherous conditions, opened the door for Osayande and the Southwark youngster made no mistake and secured a tight victory. For more information about the Tigers, including information about joining their set up, visit www.pitchero.com/clubs/southwark tigers.

happy to say it now seems to be working.” In a dominant and professional performance at the weekend two goals each from Kevin Maresi and Edriss Conteh plus other efforts from Kelly Odhu, Andre Wumba-Lelo, Joseph Earls and an own goal were enough to secure the visitors their latest league points.

Dropped points but undefeated run continues Stansfeld O&B Club 1 Borden Village 1

STANSFELD'S UNBEATEN run continued following a draw against Borden Village in the Kent County Premier Division, a undefeated sequence that now runs to twelve games.

Things looked bright for Stansfeld when top goalscorer Billy Shinners opened the scoring on fifteen minutes after being set up by Tony Dakin for a simple finish from six yards out. Sam Ryan, Freddie Sansom and Shinners all went close to adding a second, but some wayward finishing and some good goalkeeping prevented the lead from being doubled. The game was turned on its head when Sansom had to come off at halftime with a pulled hamstring. With Stansfeld's genuine substitutes both stuck at work it meant assistant manager Hari Philips had to pressed into action. Borden Village gained some confidence from the reshuffle and they soon took control of the game. The scores were eventually level on 70 minutes when Borden substitute George Latham managed to lose Lennie Wise in the box to rifle home a shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net. Borden hit the outside of the post with another long distance strike, before Shinners had a great chance to wrap up the points in injury time, but his goal bound drive was somehow headed to safety by a Borden defender.

HALSEY AND WALTON STAND DOWN AT FISHER

Southwark News, Thursday November 13, 2014

By John Prendergast

news@southwarknews.co.uk

FISHER CO-MANAGERS Billy Walton and Simon Halsey have stepped down from their roles at the Rotherhithe side.

Halsey formally announced the decision two days after Fisher exited the FA Vase against Crawley Down Gatwick last week, a tight game that eventually went to a replay and penalties. The ex-Herne Bay boss joined Fisher back in June but Halsey told the News that being a co-manager was not working out as he hoped. He said: “Joint management is not for me. I have spent fourteen years as a coach and number two before stepping up to overall charge at Herne Bay and Lordswood. “But I am at a stage where I just want to do what I want to do. I have my own footballing beliefs, which are actually not

that different from Billy's, but I thought it would be better if one of us stood down and let the other take charge.” Halsey added: “I don't have anything lined up but I am looking for work. I want to wish Fisher all the best in their quest to get home [to a new ground in Rotherhithe] and for the rest of the season.” But on Tuesday night Walton also decided that he too would leave his role and he would not be taking sole control of the side for the remainder of the season as the club had initially hoped. A Fisher spokesman told the News: “Billy has decided to step down from his managerial role. Junior James will be in temporary charge of team affairs for this weekends game.” Performances under the duo have been inconsistent this term although Fisher had been showing signs of improvement in recent weeks. Hopes were high of progress in the FA Trophy against Crawley Down Gatwick, who were

www.southwarknews.co.uk/millwall

Simon Halsey, standing, and Billy Walton, seated, left their managerial roles either side of last weekend

struggling for form in their own league, but Fisher lost that tie last Wednesday. Fisher followed that up with two league defeats in three days, on Saturday against Rochester United and Monday night against Greenwich Borough, which seems to have been enough to convince Walton he was not the right man to take the club forward.

McDonagh extends winning run

BERMONDSEY LIGHT middleweight Pete McDonagh extended his undefeated run to six bouts after beating Zoran Cvek in six rounds on Saturday night. The 36-year-old stopped his Croatian opponent in the sixth round at The Glow club in Bluewater meaning he has not lost a fight since he was beaten by Bradley Skeete in March 2013. Since that loss, when Skeete won the Southern Area Title, McDonagh has fought on six occasions and has

picked up five wins and a draw. The win maintains McDonagh's long stated belief that he still has much to offer the boxing world, having spent most of the rest of his career picking up fights at short notice and losing bouts. Now fighting out of the MGM gym in Marbella, and having secured sponsorship that means he can pick his fights, McDonagh has started on a journey that he hope will turn him into another 'Cinderella Man' of the boxing McDonagh continued his undefeated run on Saturday night world.

Kadi added: “As manager you have to have a different approach. As assistant you can be a bit more laid back and more interactive and sociable with the players. “The manager sometimes needs a distance, but still have the ability to put his arm around a player if he needs to, but as an assistant you can be that buffer between the manager and the players. “What we do works well in our time at the academy and now at Dulwich.” Despite their differences when it comes to short term targets this season Rose and Kadi, as you might expect, sing from the same hymn sheet. The Dulwich assistant said: “If we can improve on last season then it is progress. It's a new team so it will always be a different challenge but we will just look to improve every season as we always have done at the club. “If we perform we can give anybody a game on our day. It's then down to consistency, we have to get that and see where that takes us.”

The management duo, along with coach Kevin James, secured Hamlet's first league title in 35 years in 2013 before taking the Champion Hill side to the brink of the Ryman Premier League play-offs last campaign. When asked why the long standing partnership works the 35-year-old thinks being close off the pitch has helped them work magic with Dulwich on the pitch. He told the News: “Things just clicked. I have know him for a long time and we are best mates. It's not just football, we know each other families and I was best man at his wedding. “We have times where we might disagree but we always come to an agreement. It is one of those things, I can't put my finger on it but it has worked from the start.” Kadi added: “Gavin is the manager but I have been working with him for

the best part of fifteen years, I know him like clockwork. “We are different in our approaches but we do give out the same message. Maybe I am more of a link to the players. Sometimes as a manager you can't get too close, but Gavin manages that really well.” As well as managing a non-league club the duo established a successful football academy, called ASPIRE, in 2002. Since then the academy, which also works on improving the education level of its graduates, has produced a string of players who have gone on to succeed in both non-league and professional football. Kadi think that the crux of that success is 'improving the person' first, and the rest will fall into place. But he admits that he has learnt from Rose too, despite them being very much a partnership. The exCoventry player said: “I have learnt so much from Gavin. From all the clubs I have been at he is the best coach I have worked with or for. I am talking the professional game too.”

Non-league round up

FISHER FC had a busy week of it in the last seven days but they failed to pick up a win in any of their three outings.

Friendship key in Hamlet management success HAMLET ASSISTANT manager Junior Kadi believes his long standing friendship with Gavin Rose is one of the reasons they have been a success at Dulwich.

FA TROPHY Metropolitan Police (A) Sat Nov 15 @ 3pm

The Fish were knocked out of the FA Vase last Wednesday in a replay against Crawley Down Gatwick that went to penalties. The first game ended in an exciting 2-2 draw at Champion Hill and once again there was little between the two sides in the second contest. Crawley took the lead in the replayed game, thanks to a first half effort from Steve Major, only for Jamie Taylor to equalise before the break. For the first time in the contest Fisher led when Billy Walton netted on 70 minutes only for Mo Shuga'a to score from the spot in the final minute of normal time. With the home side having their keeper sent off before the final whistle Fisher appeared to have the advantage in the extra 30 minutes but they failed to score again. The game went to a penalty shootout which Crawley won 4-3. Just three days later Fisher fell to defeat again, this time in a league contest, as a solitary goal from Matt McHugh was enough to see Rochester United pick up three points against the Fish at Champion Hill. It was back to East Dulwich on Monday for Fisher as they took on Greenwich Borough, again in a Southern Counties East Premier Division contest. In the end they fell to defeat again, despite a brace of goals from Kareem Boyle, but two goals from former ex-Millwall striker Gary Alexander and a Scott Finch effort saw Greenwich win 3-2. With Maidstone United being in FA Cup action last weekend Dulwich Hamlet found themselves with no competitive fixture. Instead they took on Conference South side Farnborough FC in a friendly on Sunday which the Hampshire side won 2-1. Xavier Vidal netted for Hamlet whilst Fejiri Okenabirhie scored twice for the visitors. The rearranged league contest against Maidstone took place last night at The Gallagher Stadium.

After the welterweight's latest win last month Garton told the News he wanted to end the year with a title shot, and that scenario has panned out. The 27-year-old will take on Aldershot boxer Adam Battle who

has lost just once in nine outings since turning pro in 2010. Garton also has just one loss on his record, against Sam Eggington in the Prizefighter tournament in April, but the ex-Lynn ABC amateur has also picked up twelve wins on route to his first tilt at a title.

THE SOUTHWARK NEWS IS THE OFFICIAL MEDIA SPONSOR OF MILLWALL COMMUNITY TRUST

Southwark News, Thursday November 13, 2014

Millwall Premier League Kicks League LAST FRIDAY marked the first evening of the eagerly awaited Millwall Premier League Kicks League.

Fourteen teams from across Lewisham and Southwark were brought together through the Millwall Premier League Kicks satellite sessions to compete in an organised football tournament. Following on from the success of the launch night, which engaged with over 100 selected young people, this event will now take place once a month at

Millwall’s indoor sports facility, The Lions Centre. The tournament is by invite only, so young people now have to demonstrate all the key skills which professional football players have to go through in order to get selected for these monthly events by working hard at their weekly football satellite sessions. Millwall Community Trust community development officers Tom Rolt and Dean Burrowes, who manage Millwall’s Premier League Kicks programme,

A Wish - Young Lions fans pay tribute DURING THE build-up for last week’s Remembrance weekend, youngsters from Millwall's half-term soccer school programme were keen to offer words of hope ahead of this year's Remembrance Day by

reciting 'A Wish', an inspirational poem written by Maxine Kendall. The video is now on Millwall's official YouTube channel, along with the iconic 'Millwall Football Club Remember' film where both can be viewed.

commented: “The Millwall Premier League Kicks League was devised simply to give young people from the projects, an opportunity to represent their estate or area once a month in structured competition against peers from across the boroughs. “By establishing the League format the aim is to create even more positivity at the free weekly sessions on the estates, and create an even bigger element of cohesion and focus within the groups in the targeted areas. Using focused competition to

bring young people from some of the toughest estates locally, demonstrates that sport and in this case football, is the answer to tackling a lot of the challenging social issues that our communities face day in, day out.” The Premier League Kicks scheme is aimed at increasing sports participation in deprived areas and has already seen

more than 100,000 young people get involved since it was first piloted in 2006. To get involved in the programme please contact Millwall Community Trust on 020 7740 0503.

GREGS’ GOAL GRAB www.newsatden.co.uk

MILLWALL 45

Lions frontman makes claim for Lions' first against Brentford

By Alex Aldridge

alex@southwarknews.co.uk

LEE GREGORY was the first man in to the referee’s office after Millwall’s defeat to Brentford.

But unlike in recent weeks, the Lions did not have a contentious decision to complain about. Instead, Gregory wanted to make sure that Millwall’s first goal had gone down as his. The striker bundled Danny Shittu’s header over the line to take his tally for the season to three. “It was definitely mine,” Gregory told the News. “Anything that comes off me in the box and goes in is my goal! “I went in to see the referee after the game to check that he jotted my name

down on his report. “I’m going to claim everything because that’s what strikers do. It’s my first season as a professional so I want as many goals as possible - it came off my back and I’m claiming it.” Gregory then had a chance to put the Lions ahead for the first time in the match but headed Matthew Briggs’ cross against the woodwork. “I was too far over at the front post maybe if I’d taken a step back it would have flown in,” he said. “These are the things that I’ll try to take into my next performance. We would have been 3-2 up then and the game would have been ours, so that’s what makes it worse.” But Gregory is feeling at home in the Championship, having found the back of the net three times in his last seven

appearances. “I’ve had a run of games in the team and now I’m confident,” he added. “The gaffer is trusting me to play each week at the minute so I’m happy. I’ll keep working as hard as I can because I want to nick a goal in every game. “It’s a long season and we’ve got a massive squad, so just to be in the team at the minute is good for my confidence. “I know that I could have a stint out of the line up but if that happens I’ll just have to take it on the chin. “I’m lucky in that the fans have taken to me so hopefully I can repay them with goals.” Despite Gregory getting his name on the scoresheet against the Bees, it was visiting striker Andre Gray who stole

the limelight with a brace. Gregory and Gray are used to competing against each other from their days together in the Conference with Halifax Town and Luton respectively. “We always had a chat last year but were both trying to be the division’s top scorer - he just nicked it in the end,” Gregory explained. “We still talk now and then and it’s good to see him doing well. It’s great to see players from the same level as me step up and score goals. “There are a hell of a lot of players in the Conference who could step up and Andre and I are lucky enough to have been given our chance.” When Millwall’s season resumes after the international break, they make the short trip across the capital to rivals Charlton.

Goalkeeper Forde: Millwall are flattering to deceive

By Alex Aldridge

alex@southwarknews.co.uk

DAVID FORDE is confident Millwall can surge up the Championship table despite failing to turn promising performances into results.

The Lions head into the two-week international break having taken just one point from their last three matches, conceding eight goals in the process. Millwall fought back from 2-0 down to restore parity against Brentford last Saturday but Danny Shittu deflected Andre Gray's cross into his own net to

hand the visitors victory. That defeat came days after Ian Holloway's side wiped out a two-goal deficit with ten men to draw with Blackburn Rovers. So Forde says the Lions' fighting qualities are a source of encouragement and that it is only a matter of time before they start picking up the points to go with their displays. But he admits that the season has been one of false dawns so far, with Millwall now 18th in the league. The goalkeeper said: "It's been frustrating because we've been playing very well and played some good

football. "This has been the best style of play since I've been at the club, but we haven't been getting results. "We flatter to deceive at the moment – we're looking like a very good side but we can't seem to win games and close it out. That's the most frustrating thing. "But once things click I think we can go on a very good run again." Assessing the Brentford defeat, Forde said: "We seem to go a couple of goals behind before we really get going. "The first half was very flat and that was partly down to the Blackburn game - we put a big effort in to come back and

get a result there and we weren't fully at it in the first half. "It was the same again, we went 2-0 behind but showed tremendous character and you've got to hand it to the lads for the way we came back. "It's fantastic to see because we know we're always in a game. "We know that we can play anyone and, no matter what the score is, score goals ourselves. It's just keeping them out at the other end. "I feel that something is happening and that we will get there. Once we do get this sorted out and rectified, we'll be a very competitive side in this division."

And Gregory, who has been operating on the left of the front three in recent weeks, hopes the Lions come out all guns blazing at The Valley. “We need to start quicker,” he said. “We’re going behind in games - we need to get out of bed earlier. “We know that we can score goals and have proved that. Once we get into our stride we are a good team but sometimes that’s been a little bit too late. “It would be good to grab a winning goal soon - hopefully I can do that at Charlton. “I’m enjoying it on the left. I’m a striker and every striker hates defensive roles, but attacking-wise I like the position because I can drift in and drift out of the box.”

DUNNE 'EM PROUD

Southwark News, Thursday November 13, 2014

Lions stalwart's family tribute

By Alex Aldridge

alex@southwarknews.co.uk

ALAN DUNNE scored only his second goal in four years last Saturday.

And it couldn’t have been better-timed, coinciding with Millwall’s Remembrance weekend tributes. But the Lions’ match against Brentford was also an important event in the Dunne family. “It was not only a fantastic day for the club but my auntie was over from Ireland for the anniversary of my granddad’s death,” Dunne told the News. “So for me to score made it almost the perfect day, apart from the result. It was nice for my auntie because she doesn’t often see me play and it was a special occasion for the family. “My auntie watched the game with my dad and it was their father who died before I was born. I don’t score as many as I used to - those days are gone. But it was nice to get on the scoresheet, especially because of the occasion.” Personnel from Headley Court were guests of honour at The Den as Millwall wore a commemorative kit to mark 100 years since the outbreak of World War

One. “We got two of the shirts - one which will be auctioned to raise money for Headley Court and the other one I’ll get signed and framed,” Dunne added. “It’s nice that I’ll have some photographs of my goal to go with it. It will be a lovely thing to keep because it was a fantastic day for the club.” Dunne’s strike had brought the Lions back onto level terms - but a Danny Shittu own goal handed the Bees a 3-2 victory, leaving Millwall in 18th. “It was a poor result,” said the defender. “After we got back into it, we were playing well and it looked like we’d get at least a point out of it. “Conceding an own goal at the other end was down to poor defending - they were a good side, well-organised and dangerous on the break, but we can’t let in three goals and expect to get anything from a game.” Dunne is confident the Lions will turn the corner soon despite winning just one of their last 12 league fixtures. “We’re capable of going on an unbeaten run and climbing up the table at any moment,” he insisted. “We haven’t often been out-played - maybe that was the case at Ipswich - but generally we’ve

We’ve got to stop conceding goals from set pieces, get back to keeping clean sheets and see how far that takes us. “The manager will get it right and I’m certain of that. We’ve had some great performances already this season but haven’t picked up the points we’ve wanted to. “But if we keep on the same track and keep doing the right things, it will work itself out. Before we went on our eightgame unbeaten run last year, we were in a similar situation - we were playing well but weren’t picking up the points. “We’ve been unlucky with a few decisions - especially in the Watford game - and those should even themselves out, but there’s a lot of learning to be done from the first 17 games. “Eradicating set-piece goals is very important because we haven’t been broken down often in open play. We know what we need to work on. “Without letting in those goals, we’d have six or seven more points and be up towards the play-offs. The margins are very fine in this league.”

ON THE day Millwall wore camouflage for the first time, friendly fire proved their undoing.

There was little Danny Shittu could do about the match-winning goal, an unfortunate deflection into his own net. And it was a cruel way for the Lions’ fightback to be curtailed. It had started with Shittu’s towering header to the back post and Lee Gregory’s bundled finish. Then an unlikely equaliser came from an unlikely source as Alan Dunne stabbed a low shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards. But Shittu was in the wrong place at the wrong time when Andre Gray’s centre flashed across the box and the ball went in off the defender’s shins. Ian Holloway said afterwards that defeat had spoiled a proud day for the club - but perhaps he only felt that way in the heat of the moment. Because wins and losses will come and go but Millwall’s tribute to wounded soldiers will live long in the memory. Very rarely does football come second at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon, but here

matters off the field took precedence - for all the right reasons. The Lions have already raised £20,000 for Headley Court but that total is expected to rise. Bucket collectors were swamped outside the ground, while David Forde’s match-worn shirt could raise £3,000 alone in a charity auction. Before kick off, The Den fell silent to remember the war dead. As WWII veterans looked on from the touchline, heads bowed, wounded troops stood side by side with players in the centre circle. It may seem as though Millwall went above and beyond in their support of Headley Court, but this is the norm at a club which has its heart in the right place, contrary to popular opinion. What happened during the 90 minutes seemed trivial in comparison to the wider context. The action was nevertheless pulsating entertainment. Lee Martin, playing as the no.10, skewed an early shot well wide of the target after being teed up by Lee Gregory. Brentford, who had 60% of the possession in the first half, had their first effort on goal when Moses Odubajo curled wide from 20 yards. Millwall were sloppy with the ball but

they carved out a decent opportunity in the 10th minute as Ricardo Fuller set up Magaye Gueye, whose shot deflected behind. The visitors counter-attacked from the corner but Romallo Jota wastefully blazed over when he had better options waiting for a pass to his left and right. Gray then dragged wide after Matthew Briggs gave the ball away before Fuller headed over from the full back's cross at the other end. In the 39th minute, another Briggs centre was flicked goalwards by Martin but David Button saved well in the Bees goal. And his side took the lead when the lively Alex Pritchard slipped a pass through to Gray, who finished between David Forde's legs. The duo combined again after the restart when Gueye's wayward pass found Juge and Gray dispatched his through ball with aplomb. But Millwall were back in it when Button failed to deal with Shittu's towering header and Gregory got the final touch as the ball crossed the line. And 60 seconds later, Dunne was encouraged to shoot on the edge of the box and his low drive found the bottom corner to make it 2-2.

Gregory then hit the bar with a free header from Briggs' cross as Millwall, back on level terms, sensed they could grab a winner. They were instead hit with a sucker punch as Gray found space inside the box and Shittu could not prevent his cross from deflecting into the net. Substitute Mathias Ranegie was denied by Button in the 69th minute before the keeper got down well to parry Fuller's drive across goal. Gregory then shot over from the inside the box as Brentford weathered a spell of heavy pressure. They could have added a fourth goal when Gray rounded Forde but his pullback rolled harmlessly across goal. Dunne glanced wide from Martin's free kick and Ranegie nodded harmlessly at Button as Millwall failed to capitalise on two headed chances. In the final minute, a high ball dropped to Ranegie but the Watford loanee couldn't control his shot and blazed his effort into the stands. Player Ratings: Forde 6, Dunne 8, Shittu 6, Beevers 6 (Ranegie 6, 67mins), Briggs 6, Chaplow 6 (Upson, 82mins), Williams 7, Gueye 6 (McDonald 7, 57mins), Gregory 6, Martin 6, Fuller 6.

BERYLSON BACKS RULE CHANGE Lions chairman voted in favour of FFP overhaul at league summit

EXCLUSIVE

By Alex Aldridge

alex@southwarknews.co.uk

MILLWALL HAVE been spared a series of transfer embargoes after changes to Financial Fair Play were voted through.

A majority of Championship clubs agreed for rules on spending to be relaxed at an emergency meeting last week. From next season, clubs in the second tier will be allowed to lose £13million-a-year - a whopping increase from £5m. And that is good news for the Lions, chairman John Berylson has told the News.

Berylson said: “If the rules had stayed the same we absolutely would have been above the limit for several seasons. We would have been dead “This change takes us from being in violation of the rules to being out of violation. We’ll be on an even keel.” The old regulations still apply for the remainder of this season, meaning Millwall’s plans for the January transfer window won’t be affected. And the club will almost certainly be placed under a one-off embargo in a year’s time because of the current £10.2m playing budget. “It’s likely we’ll lose one transfer window,” Berylson confirmed, “but after that we won’t be penalised.” In the future, Berylson will have the option to spend “real money” on new

players - but first he and manager Ian Holloway want to reduce the size of the squad. “I’m not going to start losing £13m just because I can,” he added. “We have a lot of players on the payroll who aren’t playing - that’s millions of pounds tied up. “Our budget is about £10m at the moment but I think we could make less stretch further next year by having a more efficient squad. “That would leave all sorts of possibilities open because Ollie would then have room to sign somebody for real money - a ten or 15-goal striker. “It means we can go for it once - and I can live with that. If we identify somebody that we really need, we will be able to go and get them.”

Lions to 'bump up' fitness against QPR

By Alex Aldridge

alex@southwarknews.co.uk

MILLWALL WILL play a behind-closed-doors friendly with QPR to keep fitness levels ticking over during the international break.

Previously, bigger crowds at The Den were needed to increase Holloway's budget - and Berylson regularly appealed for more fans to come to games. “I still need the fans but we’ve been at a huge disadvantage,” he said. “We have great fans but not enough of them. “The Cardiff and Blackburn managers both said that the passion of our fans is enormous, even though we don’t get big crowds. “A lot of clubs in the Championship get twice as many fans going to games but they’re quiet, whereas our fans do a lot for the team. “So changing the rules is a good move and gets us in line with how they do things in the Premier League.”

The Lions have a free weekend coming up and do not play again until they visit south London rivals Charlton on November 22. So assistant Marc Bircham has used his connections at Loftus Road to organise a match against an XI from Harry Redknapp’s squad. Bircham told the News: “We’ve arranged a reserve game against QPR for today. “The players that need to bump up their fitness will be playing and we’ll put out a strong team. “QPR will be playing the likes of Jordan Mutch, Joey Barton and Adel Taarabt so it will be a proper game. “Mathias Ranegie, Jack Powell, Jermaine Easter and Angel Martinez will be involved, and Byron Webster might play a little bit too. “It will be quite a strong side.” Bircham, who has admitted an FA charge of improper conduct after he was sent to the stands against Blackburn, hopes the Lions can use the break to their advantage. “We’re not too far off,” he said. “We’ve got to tweak things - we could be better defensively and more clinical when we’re attacking, because we do get chances. “If we stop giving teams a two-goal head start, we’ll have a good chance of winning games. “We’re not looking vulnerable at the back or giving teams lots of chances but we’re getting punished for every little lapse. “That was happening when Ollie and I first came in - teams weren’t having a lot of shots on goal against us but they were going in. “There’s been a bit of bad luck involved in our recent results but we’ll be alright if we tighten up. “The lads will have a few days off over the weekend and then next week will be a normal week, preparing for the Charlton game.” THE RECYCLED PAPER CONTENT OF UK NEWSPAPERS IN 2013 WAS 83.5%
