While living and refereeing in the Kenyan super league in Kenya I came across Len Julians. I was the senior linesmen for one of his games. As at that time I was the only white referee I had the opinion that Mr Julian’s expected preferential treatment which he did not receive. He subsequently turned his supporters in the crowd against me from the bench saying I was bias towards the other side. The outcome was that my 8 year old son and I were set upon and dragged from my motorcycle and only escaped serious injury due to the more sensible supporters intervention.
So forgive me if I don’t join in shouting his praise. I do remember him being a popular coach and fairly successful during his time in Kenya.

Len moved to Africa to develop Kenyan players at Gor Mahia FC and was a successful coach. The team transformed its mode of play. Solid defending, Great mid play and firing from all cylinders were the hallmark of his game, Never seen a greater coach in Kenya
Len Julians was the father of my friend Gary Julians who also was a gifted footballer.They lived by the green in Joydens wood in Bexley.One day Len took me and his son to a Millwall match at the old Den it was totaly amazing.as we drove into the ground all supporters were say Hi Len
I worked with Len in a printers in north Acton when he was 16 a nice lad football mad,he was playing for Spurs Juniors at the time,I recall the time Spurs were playing an evening game against an Austrian side, after work I took Len to spurs on my motocycle, he got me in free of charge, prime position on the bench. A great guy
A TRUE GENT A LOVELY APPROACHABLE MAN HE WAS MY SPORTS TEACHER AT KINGSDALE SCHOOL IN WEST DULWICH HE WAS PLAYING FOR MILLWALL AT THE TIME
When I was 16, in 1979, I started work with Len Julians and Bryan Snowdon at their garage, Whitehill Service Station, Meopham, Kent. Len was invited to join Crystal Palace as their Assistant Manager around 1982. Both Len and Bryan were good to work for.
Not sure if this is true but my late father said that he was related to Len (cousins i believe, born and breed in Tottenham) would love to know if this is true as i am a arsenal fan and strangley enough was also born 19 June
Len was my uncle, my dad and me would go to every Arsenal game (being I was little) I got to sit in the glass box/coaches box quite often at Highbury. I had a set of footballs signed by all the team members of all of the first division teams - courtesy of uncle Len.
Gosh, just came across this. Len Julians is my Dad. Sadly he died in 1993. Such a special man. Wonderful memories, he adored his fans and course loved the game.
