Uncle Jeff & Stanley Matthews’ autograph

Uncle Jeff, at the wheel

My Unlce Jeff has been going to West Ham since the 1950s. I’ve been going with him since the early 90s. On Saturday, we went to Reading to watch our team be rubbish. He’s always telling me stories about how football used to be, and on this journey I decided to record one of them. At some point in the 1950s, uncle Jeff tried to get Stanley Matthews’ autograph. It didn’t go to plan.
