Where do you sit/stand? Frank Adams Stand, Block S, Row Q.

Who do you come to games with? On my own or sometimes Jill my partner comes down with me.

How long have you been a supporter? 48 years.

What made you first start coming to matches? I was working in Wycombe and a colleague asked me if I fancied going on a Tuesday night. He and his family were great supporters. I think that was season 1966/67.

What was your first match as a fan? I cannot remember, but continued to go to matches, and several seasons we saw every one including the old floodlit league.

What has been your favourite moment supporting the club? Lots - getting into the Football League, Frank Adams Stand being built, Wembley the first time with Martin O Neill, the Torquay match when we survived.

Who’s the best player you’ve seen during your time as a fan? Dave Carroll.

Who’s been your favourite player to wear the quarters and why? Keith Searle. He was a great goalscorer, and more than a bit hard.

Tell us a funny story from your time supporting the club? I was living in Henley and really looking forward to the day’s cup game. It was a nice sunny cold day, I put the TV on at lunchtime before leaving to go to the match, and there was John Motson in his famous coat covered in snow saying the game was off! Could not believe it.

What does the club mean to you? I’m proud of the club; every club has ups and downs, Things are looking good with a great manager and chairman.

Describe Wycombe Wanderers in three words: Great emotional experience.
