Scary moment on Gorleston Beach

Post by chukka63 »

me and 15 year old son were the only 2 fishing near the wreck at gorleston tonight when a youth came from the darkness from behind me.my son was looking behind me which made me think someone was approaching,so i looked round and 8ft away was a guy walking up to us.when he got level,asked what we'd caught,then i noticed a cricket bat by his side.then he asked for a ciggy,i dont smoke.i got my phone out to call my partner to make him aware people knew where i was etc,he asked what phone it was etc etc.he left shortly after.why would you carry a cricket bat at that time of night along a "deserted beach".got home safe,but just beware.p.s.,poor nights fishing

It could be genuine Chukka, a colleague of mine has already started indoor nets in preparation for the upcoming season. However, if it was me i'd have been suspicious as well.

Thanks for posting the warning though, there are some nutters out there.

Just be careful. It could be worthwile to bring a shot gun with you maybe.
The yarmouth area is not the best place to go on your own at night! :-S

Wouldn't worry about it mate, most yob youfs are gutless cowards and always go around mob-handed (that's how they got Garry Newlove because they would not have got him one on one). So one on his own even with a cricket bat is very unlikely to start anything. In my experience they usually turn up three or four, p***ed or high and making a row. Fortunately they always buzz off again when they see that there are two of us because being cowards they don't want to take the risk that one of us could be a bit handy (actually we both are LOL).

I am assuming by the way that the original post was worded I can imagine that the chap and his son that were out fishing felt very intimidated to be approached by someone with a cricket bat.
I know I can handle myself if needs must but some people out there may be more vunerable than others, especially if out late with their children, not really something to joke about

no its not a thing to joke about, but if it comes to it being an ex rugby player who now weighs 20+ stone i will be able to see off a couple of kids with weapons but also if i would use my filleting knife if needed

Luggy, one look at your casting and they'd soon run off (probably laughing!).
