Description:
Stan Flashman (1930 in East London – December 1999 in Ilford) was known for many years as a ticket tout who claimed he could obtain tickets for almost anything, from Cup Finals to the Queen's Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace.

Chairmanship of Barnet

In 1985 he took over as chairman of struggling Barnet Football Club who were heading towards receivership. Buying the club cost him just £50,000. Almost immediately the team improved and, with Barry Fry as manager, Barnet won the Conference and promotion to the Football League in 1991. Despite Fry's success as manager, he and Flashman had their differences and Fry was regularly sacked and then reinstated by Flashman.

He resigned as chairman in 1993 after they had narrowly avoided bankruptcy and expulsion from the Football League.

In 1995, Barnet goalkeeper, coach and manager Gary Phillips said of Flashman, "A lot of people knock Stan and I had my runs ins with him as much as anyone but at the end of the day he did save the place once. When he was good he was very, very, generous, and most of the time he looked after the lads well. Unfortunately when it went sour he, maybe, could have handled things a lot better".Gary Phillips testimonial, Barnet FC programme May 8, 1995

Death

Flashman died of a heart attack in December 1999 at the age of 69.
