Name: Jack

Age: 16

Live: The heart of Lancashire - Ansdell.

Marital Status: Single, but emotionally attached! (That`s got to be a better way of putting what JC did the other week?*Haha*)

First Game: Home game, Port Vale in October 1993. We lost the game 3-1, although I don`t remember it…obviously!

First Away game: Wigan at Springfield Park. Not a clue when it was, all I recall is a striker with long fuzzy hair doing a somersault (Stuart Barlow?), scoring a hat trick and us losing 3-0!

Favourite Former players: Richie Wellens and John Murphy. Loved watching the both of them play. We`ve missed Richie somewhat and 'that` goal against Port Vale from halfway will stay with me forever! I favoured Murphs more though; with his crucial goals and his all round play was fantastic. I believe BJM made Brett Ormerod what he is (some may say was!) today.

Favourite Current player: Shaun Barker - best player we`ve had done Bloomfield Road in a very long time for me: absolute stand out player even in our great squad. He`s won player of the season on the site, and he`s been playing out of position for the whole campaign - that alone shows how good the man is.

Favourite games:

Scunthorpe the other week has got to be up there somewhere, along with Stoke City away where Martin Aldridge (RIP) scored three. Kidderminster away on TV sticks in the memory. I`ve been to nearly every home game possible throughout my 13/14 years watching the 'pool, but obviously can`t remember that many! The Millennium Stadium games were memorable but none of these will compare to if we clinch promotion at the new Wembley!

Any final thoughts:

Well, the next few weeks are massive for the club. This season has been the best I`ve ever seen, clearly, and the increase in attendance signals this. The club seems to be more professional all round this season - perhaps that`s down to Normunds' impact? The playing side has thrived from investment, and I`m enjoying going to Bloomers more now than I have ever done. As I grow older I`m able to get away more often now, and I`ve had a couple of fantastic days out with the lads from the site, and long may that continue. We ARE going up - I`m certain. Having never seen the mighty above League One level, we have to go on to The Championship! Destiny calls…

Yes would be great to see the might out of the bottom 2 leagues. 20 plus years following the Pool and never seen us in top 2 leagues. But WE ARE BACK UP THE POOL
