We regularly need new Cod Heads, so would appreciate contributions from lifelong supporters of the Mariners. This week's Cod Head is Henry Barber.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I'm Henry Barber and I am 14 years old. I have been a season ticket holder for around 8 years in the lower Carlsberg stand. I live in Alvingham near Louth.

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

I started supporting them 10 years ago and my first match was in 1997 vs Bristol City at home. it was 1-1.

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

In my opinion the best player I have seen in a Town shirt is Kingsley black.

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

The Wembley game against Bournemouth because it was a brilliant comeback.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

My favourite is Pride Park (Derby's ground), it has brilliant facilities. My least favourite is York street of Boston, a total dump.

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

The best season-1997/98. Worst - the 2002/03 season where Town were relegated from the old div1.

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

The most eventful day while I have been following Town is the play off final last season. the match was poor but Cardiff was a great place.

What is the strangest thing you have ever done at a game?

Erm, going to the toilet and to walk out to find Town had scored against Boston at home this season.

What is the worst game you've ever been to?

Town v Cheltenham at Cardiff, the players didn't really show up.

What's the most amusing chant you've heard at a game?

Against Crewe in the cup. We were loosing and I heard the Crewe fans sing "we are going up" when they had only got 2 points.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

Alan Buckley, some people didn't like him though.

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?

I go to all the home games, because I have a season ticket. I go to about 3 away games a season.

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