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

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am 13 years old, but am very mature, and live in Waltham.

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

I started supporting the Mariners in the season before the Wembley season but my first game was against Rotherham at Blundell Park in our Division 1 relegation season. It finished 0-0 but we Raven and Santos sent off.

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

John Oster is by far the best player I have seen play for Town, he was pure quality and should have playing in the Premiership.

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

The Spurs game was the game that I will never forget and the one that I wish I could go back to watch it again.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

Well my least favourite is York Street in Boston by a mile, I can't believe how bad the facilities are their.
But my favourite is Fratton Park because of the atmosphere there was around the ground.

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

Well when Kalala scored against Tottenham I just went round hugging random people.

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

It was Town against Wycombe at Blundell Park in the 04/05 season. It was absolutely awful, there was about 4 shots in the whole game.

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

This season at home against Peterborough their fans were singing that we were just a small town in Scunthorpe. That one got me laughing.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

I know he was not in my time but I have heard and seen great things from Lawrie Mcmenemy's reign as gaffer at Grimsby. His best achievement was getting us promoted from the 4th Division.

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 pretty much all the home games at the moment but don't travel away for many reasons. And when Town are playing and I'm not watching it I watch Soccer Saturday, listen to Humberside and get Texts on my Mobile.

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