Jamie Truslove - Eastleigh

06 December 2015

 

How old were you when you went to your first Eastleigh match, and who did you go with?

I was about 18 as I first came to Hampshire when I started university at Southampton Solent in 2013, I went to a few Saints games and heard Eastleigh were doing well in the lower divisions so thought I’d go along and see what they’re like. I went to the game with a few of my course mates.

 

What was it that made you an Eastleigh supporter?

I joined the media team at Eastleigh in 2014 and started supporting the club as I went to every home game, therefore picking up an affiliation for the club and hoping they’d do well since then!

 

What is your memorable moment between Eastleigh and Macclesfield Town

It would have to be last season when Eastleigh played Macclesfield at The Silverlake live on BT Sport, Eastleigh won 4-0 that day and I remember our midfielder Jai Reason scoring a great goal from outside the penalty area.

 

Who is your stand out player for Eastleigh this season and why? 

It would have to be striker James Constable, he’s our top goal scorer and is always reliable up top when we need a goal! Yemi Odubade is a close second, though, as he has been outstanding in the midfield for us this season.

 

If there is one Macclesfield Town player you would sign, who would it be and why?

It would have to be Kristian Dennis, his goal scoring record this season has been impeccable, he’s scoring so many goals and looks like a top striker, not just for Macclesfield but when you look at the league in general he’s up there with the best in front of goal.

 

If there is one thing you would like to change at Eastleigh, what would it be?

Probably the status of the club, we’ve grown so much in the past few years and not too many people know about Eastleigh aside from the locals and the other teams in the league. Hopefully if Eastleigh do well this year in the league, and get a strong FA Cup run a few more people will know a bit more about the club.

 

And finally what’s your score prediction for the match?

I think we’re in good form lately, our squad is starting to really gel together so I’m going to back an Eastleigh win. Although it will be hard to keep out Kristian Dennis so I’m going to say 3-1 to Eastleigh.

Rob Shirley - Bromley

17 November 2015

 

How old were you when you went to your first Bromley match, and who did you go with?

I must have been about 16 (60 now) and would go with a few mates when West Ham were playing away. It was very much an amateur club and to be honest not much better than "jumpers for goal posts"

 

What was it that made you a Bromley supporter?

I was brought up in Bromley, so they were my local team. I have been a West Ham supporter since a boy, but finally got fed up with the hype that is the Premier League. I am now a regular home supporter of Bromley and I have to say I find it a much better experience than going to West Ham. In fact I sit with like-minded ex season ticket holders of Arsenal, Spurs and Palace.

 

What do you think of Bromley’s season so far?

Considering that most fans of Bromley were just hoping for season that would avoid relegation back to the Conference South we have performed better than anyone could have hoped for. If we had not given away some easy goals like last weekend against Altrincham we would be in an even better position. 

 

Who is your stand out player for Bromley this season and why? 

Moses Emmanuel has been fantastic, he is exciting to watch and of course the league’s top scorer at present. But for consistency I think our left back Joe Anderson warrants a mention.

 

If there is one Macclesfield Town player you would sign, who would it be and why?

From what I hear Kristian Dennis is playing well and could cause our back four a few problems.

 

If there is one thing you would like to change at Bromley, what would it be?

I would not change much, we are a very well run community club, and our present success is due to some very hard work by very dedicated owners and management.   However I would change the antiquated sound system in the stand. I'm never quite sure whether it is playing music or just noisily vibrating.

 

And finally what’s your score prediction for the match?

Going by the league table and both teams home and away form I would give Macclesfield the edge. However with our pace and form up front anything is possible. Overall I think a draw would be a good result for us.

Emily - Kidderminster Harriers

03 October 2015

How old were you when you went to your first Kidderminster match, and who did you go with?
When I was eight I woke up one morning and remember looking at the pre-season friendly fixtures on Teletext. I remember seeing Kidderminster v Walsall and thinking that sounds good - a local derby. So after a little gentle persuasion, my dad and I set off for Aggborough to watch the game. To this day I haven't seen a better pre-season friendly. Kiddy won 4-3, the atmosphere was brilliant and I became hooked, the rest, as they say, is history! 
 

What was it that made you a Kidderminster supporter?
They were my local (then lower League) team. I've always loved the red kit too. I quickly established an identity and forged friendships with fellow match-goers. And Murdoch’s food – especially the famous pies swayed my decision too! 
 

What is your memorable moment between Kidderminster and Macclesfield Town? 
Callum Gittings' worldy at our place in 2014. Funnily enough, it's memorable for me as I missed the goal due to a train delay when I was travelling back from Stoke when I lived up there. Of course, to this day I'm slammed by my friends for missing it but I've watched it enough times since! 

 

Who is your stand out player for Kidderminster this season and why? 
It goes without saying it's been a really really tough start with no wins. But there are positives and reasons to be optimistic. Luke Maxwell has stepped up from the academy and has put in some great performances in central midfield. Gurjit Singh has adapted well to National League football and has scored four goals – an impressive return in a struggling side. Unfortuantely he's been injured for recent games and is undoubtedly a big miss. Harriers have recently signed former Motherwell man Zaine Francis-Angol who scored on his first start on Tuesday. He looks very good and could prove crucial in the coming months. 
 

If there is one Macclesfield Town player you would sign, who would it be and why?
I’ve always enjoyed watching Paul Turnbull for his all-action displays and commitment to the cause. Not when he scores last minute equalisers against Harriers at the Moss Rose, though!

 

If there is one thing you would like to change at Kidderminster, what would it be?

The goings on of the last 20 months. The financial problems at the club have been well documented since the middle of 2014. Staying in the top-flight of non-league football has to be the priority now – a far cry from just over two years ago when we nearly won the league under Steve Burr. Decisions that will be made in the next week and months will be vital moving forward for the longevity of the club. We wait and see.  

 

And finally what’s your score prediction for the match?

Our away form actually hasn’t been too bad considering the league position. We haven’t been heavily beaten in any match. If Macc are on form they should take the three points but I’d like to be optimistic and say 1-1!
