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

John Dimitrovich-White

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Born in Skegness. Currently living in Isleworth Middlesex. Just down the road from Brentford's Ground. Moved to London in 1972. Go to games in London and others I can get to, finances allowed. Married with two daughters , Emma and Laura both of whom are Town Fans with Emma coming to all Grimsby games I see with me.

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

Always a MARINERS FAN since I was a kid. First saw Grimsby at Home to Bournemouth in 1968.

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

Clive Mendonca and Sir "MACCA"

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

Brentford V Grimsby, 3 - 1 to Grimsby, 2003 -2005, because I was able to rub in the result to the four Brentford Fans I work with.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

Favourite Brentford as they are pretty friendly to away fans. Least favourite Plough Lane, an awful place. No wonder they moved Wimbledon.

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

Best season the Wembley Double year and the promotion.
Worst season the double relegation 2002 to 2004.

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

The two Wembley games and watching the Grimsby fans doing the Conga in the rain at Brentford.

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

I never do anything strange and my psychiatrist can support me on this one.

What is the worst game you've ever been to?

Loosing FA Cup and League game at Queens Park Rangers, there are also Rangers Fans where I work.

What's the most amusing chant you've heard at a game?

"Dirty Northern Bastards", by any London fans. They are incapable of developing individual chants for teams so anyone North of Watford gets that shouted at them.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

By their personal record over all it has to be BILL SHANKLY

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 get to about 6 which has more to do with finance than anything else. I watch the Gillette Soccer Saturday show to keep up with events.

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

4.Futcher (C)
11. Reddy
