Post: # 237834Post Northumberbee »

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!

Originally from Dollis Valley mays lane I started going to Barnet in 2005 first time at underhill was Barnet vs Arsenal in 2004 when they opened the floodgates for the last 10 minutes and we were allowed to go inside. (I was 3 at the time and playing football outside the ground with my old man) first full match was against Halifax in 05 when we won the league and first away game Man United! Always stood on the east terrace at underhill and am now one of the regular faces of the “younger generation” behind the goal at the hive trying to create some atmosphere and get behind the team. A lot of you will know me as one of the admin on Barnet Til I Die Facebook group.
