When did you first start supporting the Mariners, and what was your first game?

My first game was v Cambridge Utd at BP when Dion Dublin played for them in Div4 as it was.

Who is the best player you ever saw wearing a Grimsby Town shirt?

Paul Futcher

If there is one game you were allowed to go back in time and watch what would it be and why?

I'd go back to Wembley or Burnley in the windscreens as a fan anyday.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

Bolton's is the best. Chesterfield the worst.

What, in your opinion, are GTFC's best and worst seasons since you have been supporting them?

97/98 best 96/97 worst

What is the most eventful day you have ever had in the course of following the Mariners?

Most eventful day as a fan must have been the playoff final hugging total strangers at full time and my best mate's Harry the Haddock is seen on all the celebration photos cos we gave it to Aidan Davison as the players celebrated.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

Best manager: Lawrie McMenemy or George Kerr according to my father.
Worst: Mike Lyons and Brian Laws.

How many games a season do you get to now, and what do you do while Town are playing games that you can't get to?

I've had a season ticket for the last 6 seasons in the main stand and average 6/7 away days + reserves, youths and I referee the juniors on sunday mornings at Cheapside.

Name your all-time starting eleven since you have been watching Town?
