I used to live down the road from Dan McCauley and went to school with his step daughter.

There's a crap claim to fame for you.
His numerous interests in companies on the Companies House website show an address in Pinhoe

I do recall that..I remember thinking at the time that it was bang out of order to go to Mr Hills home.

It was a small group of younger supporters iirc.The exuberance of youth was a forgiving factor with the Hills I would imagine.
As I recall, Al Crockford was involved in this.

I remember reading that during France '98 some City fans found out they were staying in the same hotel as the then Argyle chairman, persuaded reception to give them his room number then constantly called him throughout the night 🤣

Didn’t a pic of the banner make the front page of the Sunday Independent which was quite a big thing in those days.
It might be the Freddie Starr rather than Dan, the former was supposedly threatening to take over the club. During those protests my banner read "Clifford Hill ate my Club" which made the local press. It is a bit out of context unless you remember that Mr Starr apparently once ate someone's hamster. Thankfully, Clifford stood his ground as latterly the 'would be' club owner was linked in Operation Yewtree to Gary Glitter and Jimmy Saville.

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Thanks for that. I'm sure you're right. I knew it was someone with a green connection..
Stuart Dawes had been the chairman at Plymouth previously iirc.
He became a director at SJP.It was all around the Allan Trump era of running the club.
Just thinking back that was a interesting meeting,Bally,Dawes,Trump.It took place in the directors room in the Grandstand.There were about 20 of us there.
Terry Coopers surprise departure in pre season was brought up.Allan Trump said that he could not be held to his contract because of a release clause that had been inserted the previous season.
