Sorry should have done this a while ago!

Location: Boringwood, originally East Barnet and Borehamwood and East Barnet (my parents and grandparents remember the milkmans horse getting its head blown off by the railway bridge in Longmore Avenue during the war!) My Grandmother lived near Billy Wright and the Beverley Sister
How many years following the Bees: 40+
Which Stand: Any. I am disabled so cannot get along as much as I once could
All Time Favourite Players: Gary Bull and Greavsie. Also the the great Les Eason, my Dad pointed him out when I was a kid
All Time Favourite Manager: The invincible Bazza, very disappointed when he turned his back on us without a fight against the weak fatty Flashman
Best Memories: Fisher when we were promoted, away win at Colchester (me and my brother winning the first scorers draw on the coach) and my first game the FA Trophy final at Wembley in '72 v Stafford Rangers and some noisy northern nerd with a dodgy rattle all match. Also seeing the promotion bus come past my parents place in Longmore Avenue with our scarves and flags up, and beating the lowlife scum from over the border in Middlesex.
Worst memories: Two main league relegations, hopefully never again, and three conference runners up.
Hobbies: Artist, used to do caricatures of the Barnet players when we were successful. Architecture, I could design a stadium better than the pile of tosh we put to the council.
Other sports watched: Rugby, I used to play and lost most of my toothy pegs that way.

How Many Years following the Bees: Whatever DJH said its his fault
Which Stand: East Terrace

Best memory: Daniel Hope losing his seat in the local council elections closely followed by the Hatch goal at Rushden

Worst Memory: Ross Flitney's goal keeping exploits at Old Trafford, The Kazaam and numerous other places - such as shame to see a keeper who had potential lose it so badly.
