Attached are the pics from the next home programme showing the injury to Jacko.

Both Bert Head and Arthur Wait criticised Dawes heavily afterwards.

Arthur Wait was quoted the next day as saying," I thought at one point he was going to start booking the corner flags."
In an era just before muscle bound minders came into vogue, it was Bert Head's young daughter Sue, who was given the task to escort 'Smiler' to his car and ward off the hostile masses.
