Following the appearance of the “Alcoholics” article on this site some interest has been raised in the now defunct Wivenhoe Town Fanzine “Look For Floodlights” that first appeared in 1990 and ran for a decade. Its title came from the cry uttered during away trips as the travelling faithful desperately tried to locate the opposition’s ground, even though on some occasions we had already visited the place for five years in succession ! (remember this was pre Sat-Nav, though not pre alcohol ).
In all a total of 52 Issues were produced and it was viewed as “An example of the good humour that exists amongst the Wivenhoe fans” (Evening Gazette) or “A poxy piss-taking rag” (the majority of our opponents/local rivals). Due to libel laws and the fact that much of its contents tended to be in-jokes and incidents relating to the SOBS and players of the day, what will be produced on this site are articles that are more accessible to the casual reader. Some articles have had to be re-vamped a little being over 20 years old while a couple of bits will appear for the first time having never seen the light of day in the ill-fated Issue 53.
