We regularly need new Cod Heads, so would appreciate contributions from lifelong supporters of the Mariners. This week's Cod Head is Stu Cox.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Stu Cox (16) lives in Grimsby and a season ticket holder with the Mariners.

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

When I was about 5 or 6 I started supporting them. My first match was a 2-1 win against Notts County in either the 94/95 or 95/96 season.

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

Without a doubt Clive Mendonca - guarantee a few goals when he was around.

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

Grimsby's 6-2 win against Wimbledon as we went 1-0 down and showed our true fighting spirit and walloped the Dons.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

I've only been to 3 away matches in my life best though what I've been to Blackpool worse then Peterborough.

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

97/98 easily the best season for any young Town fan.
The worst is 02/03. I didn't see Town win, I only went to 8 games though.

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

Wembley easily AWS final great atmosphere and sightseeing before hand. Nothing can beat a good bit of Wembley.

What is the strangest thing you have ever done at a game?

When we played Blackpool at their place this season I asked the stewards if I could go onto the pitch and show these lads how to take a proper penalty. I asked the steward but he swiftly ....... refused.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

In my eyes Alan Buckley made us be the most successful team at Wembley (we ever lost) and helped us quite a bit.

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 go to as many as possible this season I have only missed 1 home match (QPR FA cup) and been to 3 away games. When I'm not there I watch Gillette soccer Saturday or if something else is getting watched I flick on Ceefax.

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


Manager: Alan Buckley

What's the best-ever atmosphere you remember at a home and away game?

The best atmosphere was Grimsby v Norwich (02/03) I started the Upper Smiths singing "You're Not Singing Anymore"!.
The worst atmosphere Town v Swindon (03/04) hardly anyone was present and when you whispered it echoed!

Do your children support the Mariners?

No but when I have some I'm sure I will get them too whatever division they are in !!!
