The following is an interview of John Sowerby undertaken by The Fishy.

When did you first start supporting the Mariners, and what was your first game?

Sometime in the seventies (it's my Father's fault), whilst George Kerr was manager though I've never seen a game.

Who is the best player you ever saw wearing a Grimsby Town shirt?

Kevin Drinkell

If there is one game you were allowed to go back in time and watch what would it be and why?

The League Cup against Everton at Goodison Park, when Paul Wilkinson scored the winner at the end of the match.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

Never seen a match, so no comment

What, in your opinion, are GTFC's best and worst seasons since you have been supporting them?

The best - The double Wembley season
The worst - Mick Lyons

What is the most eventful day you have ever had in the course of following the Mariners?

Not so much one day, but the series of wins against Sheff. Wed., and Leicster in the cup, followed by the loss with honour against Liverpool were good.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

George Kerr

How many games a season do you get to now, and what do you do while Town are playing games that you can't get to?

Don't get to any.

Name your all-time starting eleven since you have been watching Town?

(In no order, and I'll probably be short a few positions!)
Batch, Waters, Jobling, Cumming, Whymark, Drinkell, Wilkinson, Croft, K. Moore, Lund, Ford
