Former players and managers - general discussion

I have always wondered what Bruce Grobbelaar moved onto after his football career finished :0)

Naked decorator sparks chaos as ‘giggling’ cops are called to woman’s house

Naturist Bruce Grobbelaar was 26ft up a ladder in nothing but his birthday suit, outside Maria Goodey’s house in Middleton when the ‘giggling’ officer arrived and asked him to get dressed

Members of Greater Manchester Police were left in stitches after they rocked up to a house to find a man completely naked.

The cheeky decorator, Bruce Grobbelaar, was perched 26ft high on a ladder painting his friend’s house in nothing but his boots when the officers turned up, all because of a tip-off from locals.

Maria Goodey, the homeowner and Bruce’s pal, had already given the neighbours a heads-up with a note that read ‘please be kind’, hinting at her friend’s penchant for nude decorating. But as Bruce heard the hum of a car he clocked a police vehicle and knew the game was up.

Once he’d made his way down, Bruce, a self-proclaimed naturist, assured the officer that Maria was fine with his birthday suit brushwork. Bruce said: "One female officer came out. It was an electric car so it sounded a bit strange, I looked round and saw that it was a police car.

“She pulled in and I thought ‘well I’m not going to stay on the ladder so she has to get out of the car and look up at me, I’ll come down the ladder and meet her at the bottom’. She got out of her car, giggling to herself and she said 'do you have any idea why I’m here? '.”

“I said, ‘well I’ve got a good idea’ and we were giggling. I said ‘I’m just painting, I’m a naturist’ and gave her the spiel of ‘it’s not illegal to be naked in public and I’ve got the permission of the owner’.”,

“She just went ‘no problem at all, I hope you have a happy day painting’ and off she went and that was that. I’ve now got the most famous builder’s bum in the North West.”

Maria added: "The top and bottom of it is I didn’t want him getting any grief. I wrote something out for every neighbour and posted it through the letterbox. I just felt it was the right thing to do.

"Bruce is lovely and he has an absolute heart of gold and I know he doesn’t deserve the backlash. I caused a bit of a stir, there were a few photographs going round.

“As far as I’m aware, because people knew what was happening, nobody had anything bad [to say] and we gather that the person who reported him to the police wasn’t actually a neighbour. He’s done a fantastic job, I highly recommend him.”

Especially when it’s an England kit, with “Bellingham 10” on the back.
