Text in report: It's a Knockout fan Ron 'Tiny' Miles
wants a St Albans team to enter the BBC TV competition and has started
organising a team himself.
Ron, of Colney Heath Lane, St Albans, doesn't think his
city should be left out when both Watford and Luton are having a go.
"We need only three girls now - we've got eight men and
five girls - and then we're ready to go."
It's too late for a St Albans team to enter this year's
competition but 23-year-old Ron wants them to start practising for next
St Albans mayor, Councillor Ivor Parry, said he thought the
show good entertainment but would not go so far as to say the council
would consider Ron's idea favourably.
"I do not want to commit them but anything of this sort
that introduces a competitive spirit is good as long as you ignore the
commercial side. I would think it is good for the district."
