When was your first game? What was the score? What can you remember about the game?

I was about 8 years old when I attended my first game at the Goldstone, accompanying my brother who was a steward so I got in free of charge. I can’t remember the team or result sadly! I went once or twice but really didn’t like football too much so didn’t go again until I was 13 in 1996. That first game back was 2-2 against Wrexham at the Goldstone, again free of charge with my brother Steve at the back of the south stand stewarding. I was also present for the infamous York City game at the end of that season. Despite the on and off field struggles I was hooked and never looked back!

Who was your first Albion idol?

I loved goalkeeping so probably Nicky Rust and outfield Stuart Storer.

What is your favourite Albion game and why?

First game at the Amex without a doubt, I literally dreamed of that ground being built and longed for a stadium to be proud of. The day and result was perfect.

Which season stands out as your favourite?

Had to be the promotion to the Premier League season in 2016/17. We were so close the year before and to go again and achieve it with some wonderful football, characters and results was fantastic.

Which are your favourite Albion home and away shirts?

The last home shirt at the Goldstone and first home one at the Amex.

What is your all-time Albion XI?

Stockdale, Bruno, Dunk, Duffy, Bridge, Knockaert, Vicente, Lualua, Stephens, Zamora, Murray.
