Someone who works for a crime family, but is not considered an actual family member. Usually an associate is of a different ethnicity, and a crime family will only let in people of one particular background.
Formed by two founder members of the HFPC (Ches and Fin) along with Pricey, the Beserker and Moist in 1999, it was decided that the word of carnage needed to be spread unto the uneducated masses of the North.
Following Gillingham FC to such salubrious locations in England such as Preston,Blackpool,Nottingham,Stoke, Millwall etc, the Associates breathed new life into the decaying art of Football Hooliganism, excessive drinking, violence, vandalism and bugle practice.
The Associates finest moments would involve such tear-jerkers as the ransacking of the Boyce hotel, Pricey being arrested for mooning the riot police, Beserker doing a whole bag in one hit, Fin armed with 2 pool cues and bottles in the town centre, and Ches wrecking the phone box then laying out the bloke queueing at McDonalds late at night. Halcyon days.
God bless us all.
