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!

Location: Norwich. I'm the opposite of northfinchleybee in that I live in norwich, but born in barnet and a north finchley/whetstone boy (many a night drinking in my grandad's local, the torrington, now sadly gone)

How many years following the bees: 40

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.

Worst Memory: 20/04/13. Last ever game at Underhill vs Wycombe A sad day. I have my match ticket framed. Plus was my birthday, 43 years earlier my mum popped me out up the hill at the Vic.
