Location: rural Northumberland
A Bees supporter since 1962, although unfortunately not continuously (see above for one reason)
Favourite spot: anywhere at Underhill, but most memorably the "top-end" terrace
Favourite player: Jack McClelland - impeccable handling and an impressively wide vocabulary!
Favourite manager: Paul Fairclough; perhaps it should be Barry but I am ambivalent about the man despite his tremendous achievements
Best memory: so many, but principally Les Eason in any one of dozens of matches - he embodied all that was best about the amateur game but transferred to a brave new era
Worst memory: Wembley v Stafford Rangers 1973 and virtually all of the horrific season of 1975/76
Other sports: I watch a little cricket and rugby union
Hobbies: walking, writing, music, painting; oh, and converting unsuspecting Geordies to the joys of the lower leagues!

Fave Player: Graz

Fave Manager: MA if he can keep us up

BEST Memory: Burton away when we stayed up
We actually ran into MA and the team at burton train station after the game and got in a huddle with them and all of us singing "we are staying up, I say we are staying up!!" Me and my mate got on the train and said "did that just happen". A brilliant end to the day.
