The only one I remember - was to the tune of 'Ferry across the Mersey' - and something like


"Cheep ferries across the Pompey, 'Cause this land's the place I love, and the booze is free"

Actually, I preferred the other one.

"He's on the booze,
he's on the booze
his name is Hughes
Hooghsie, Hooghsie, Hooghsie, Hooghsies - repeat to fade.

Unfortunately there’s not a lot of people left at FP that remember Docker so I’d imagine if they did get a song going they wouldn’t have an idea what it was about

I'd say anyone older than 45 would definitely remember him.

If you knew Docker you would remember he liked a bet. He once asked me to put a fairly substantial bet on for him at Bransbury park Ladbrokes (which he frequented almost daily). Anyway, on a particular day he gave me 400 quid to put on a race at Cheltenham for him. The horse was 7-4 (called beech road) and it led at the last only to fall over. Poor Docker was distraught cos that was a big bet for even him in 1989. The real kicker was that the same horse ran next at the Cheltenham festival in the champion hurdle. It was 50-1 ………….. and yes it won. [cr][cr] ,

Fairly substantial, 400 notes in 1989 faf Docker [cr][:D]

After reading your story I went on to Facebook and found a memorial page with some cracking stories about him including one from the girl who used to work in one of the bookies who needed sugar if he wanted a cuppa and he came back with caster sugar [:D]

Heartening tales of a lad having a laugh and enjoying his vices, halcyon days

Yeah im sure there are many 'Dawnshandbag' tbf. Don't they still have a memorial race at Goodwood every year in his name? I always found him to be a decent enough character but he did love that green parker. XXXXXXin thing had more pockets than fagins coat.

It is the one thing that foreign owners and highly paid chief executives will never grasp. It is not a mere football club, it has an emotional pull. The fathers, grandfathers, great grandfathers and more that stood on those terraces passed things on to other generations. In common with many football clubs the club and ground reflect the community’s they are sat among.

yyr it’s not just about the club it’s the club the city the island the streets the pubs etc. We’ll never get an owner who understands unless we’re lucky enough to get one who grew up in the city which is highly unlikely.

Love reading threads like this.

Ricky is too young to have known Docker, just recall playing Villa in a pre-season friendly after he passed away and they had a bed sheet tied to the back of the Milton End saying something like “Villa fans pay respects to Docker Hughes”.
