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

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

When I was 6 years old my dad was a steward and I use to go with him. I think my first game was Portsmouth but can't really remember

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

There is Oster, Todd and Coyne - they were amazing and had a lot of talent.

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

1 nil win against Tottenham, the atmosphere was amazing. I didn't go to Wembley or Anfield so couldn't really decide on any other game.

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

My favourite is the Millennium Stadium and my worst one is Boston.

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

The worst was when we got relegated to Tranmere and one of the best is '98 season when we got promoted, also the season we beat Tottenham was a good season.

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

Probably when I needed to go to the toilet but went to the canteen then went back to my seat but I had then to get up to go to the toilet.

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

When we got relegated at Tranmere

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

Alan Buckley

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

Lincoln Bomber in the Air..........................RAF from Grimsby shot one down.

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?

If I can't get to a game I either listen to it on Mariners World or listen to I on the radio. I get to all the home games and about five away games. I have never missed a home game for ages there was one time when I had a operation in my ear at the hospital and they sent me home to rest and they said I wasn't allowed to go out but I still went to the Town game.

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