The savannah around Clapham Common played an important part in Britain’s equine heritage. Conditions were perfect for rearing, breeding and training horses for cattle herding duties. The city’s first stud farm, Clapham Stud, was located on the site where Infernos now stands. A decline in general cowboy activity in the 1950s, saw business at the stud farm slowly dwindle. The owner Jaypee McManaman decided to utilise some of his land to capitalise on the boom in popularity of American Football. The Colts were born, and McManaman bankrolled them to several Conference titles including their 1974 “Game of Five Quarters” against local rivals Balham Blitz, which most Colts fans would agree that this was the club’s finest hour. This tee takes you back in time to that famous moment, when quarterback Norris Pumpernickel launched a hail Mary with 3 seconds left on the clock, finding rookie wide receiver Derek Burrito in the endzone. The fans invaded the pitch and Burrito became an instant hero.
