Boring Stan, the Park Avenue fan by Tony Hannan
Reproduced from Bradford Park Avenue Fightback! pub. by The City Gent, 1989
Tony Hannan is nowadays better known as a successful author and publisher as well as editor of the monthly RL magazine, Forty20. Thirty odd years ago he had established a local reputation as a cartoonist with his work published in the Telegraph & Argus. In 1988 as editor of The City Gent I encouraged Tony to produce Bernard of the Bantams, a comic with a number of cartoon strips about Bratfud football which ran to about half a dozen issues between 1988-90. Boring Stan the Avenue fan is possibly the best remembered of the characters and the cartoon above was produced for a special one-off publication produced by The City Gent to help encourage interest in the revival of Bradford Park Avenue.
