THE hunt to track down the Phantom Raspberry Blower of the SIL continues apace with the culprit still causing havoc around the local football scene.

And his fame has spread to the other side of the world with Jason Hadley getting in touch while taking a break from travelling in New Zealand and Australia.

He played for Ipswich Athletic last year alongside Alan Ditcham and he believes he's the culprit.

“He never admitted it was him, although he happens to be on Face Book just after the Raspberry Blower has left a comment!

Apart from Ditcham, joint Stowmarket Town manager Christian Appleford has also been put in the frame.

He has been in touch to refute this and to add: “After the recent vicious accusations to my character I feel it is time to offer my side of the story and prove my innocence and put the true identity of the Phantom firmly in the frame!

“Shaun Watson was right last week that it did start around 1995 at Ransomes and although I was aware of it due to receiving countless rasps at all hours I was not a part of it.

“I also received the array of meows but also regularly got a brass band playing down the phone or the theme from the Gladiator film before being subjected to a vicious rasp.

“The finger at the time pointed to Alan Ditcham due to his obsession with Gladiator although Paul Munchwell and Shaun Watson were suspects.

“I have a firm alibi to prove my innocence as last Tuesday when Stowmarket were playing Diss I was on the sideline with many local football personalities as witnesses and phone and online rasps were taking place during this period showing I am not the Blower!

“I do also believe there are other rogue/hybrid/copycat raspers who may or may not be working in conjunction with Shaun the online 'original' Blower.

“There are many suspects such as Peter Solorasp, Simon Barksrasp, Irvin 'the half time oranges' Flaherasp and another 'original' Alan Ditchrasp, but the new phone rasper in my opinion is Jamie Sandirasp.

“Although I honestly don't think anyone is really sure who the Phantom is as guilt/evidence/accusations seem to change every week, I think the old school like Jimmy Marjrasp, Big Telrasp from Ransomes and Glen Bradgoodrasp may not be the culprits.

“Also, possibly Ditchrasp, but if I was a betting man my money would be on Shaun Wattyrasp as the original phantom and Jamie Sandirasp as the hybrid new phone rasper!”
