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!

Which Stand: East Terrace, Underhill

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.

Location: Bath. Lived in N20 until I was 7 and always attached to the club via my dad who is Whetstone born and bred

How many years following the bees: 30

Which Stand: East Terrace, Underhill

Fave Player: Gary Bull/Paul Showler from the Fry days. In the 21st century I'll go with Grazioli and Bailey

Fave Manager: John Still

BEST Memory: Beating Man City in the Coca Cola Cup in 94, Freedman after 30 seconds and Sumo keeping out Niall Quinn all by himself! // Staying up on the last day at Rushden and at Burton // Sneaking into Underhill on the Friday before the last home game ever and taking some photos. Weather was perfect and the place never looked better.

Worst Memory: The Torquay game. Was a student in Durham so couldnt attend. Stayed in my room for days afterwards // The hundreds of times we have conceded a last minute equaliser

Hobbies: Horse racing, walking, golf

Fell out of love with it for a few years but will be there this season as often as I can
