"I've got some dinky tattoos already but nothing this big.

Natalie is a big Mitchell Cole fan and it was his arrival at the Lamex Stadium that began her love affair with the club.

"I've been following Boro for three years," revealed Natalie.

"I've always followed Mitchell Cole's career since he was a junior with West Ham and then I met my partner in Sandy who also supported Boro.

"Graham Westley wished my son a happy first birthday last year which he didn't have to do and it made his day."

Natalie travels from Cambridgeshire to watch her team and travelled to Wembley last month to watch Boro lift the FA Trophy against York City. She is hoping Westley's men can make a better start to the new campaign than they managed to do last season.

"I live in St Neots and we pay all that petrol money to go and watch Boro - people think we're crazy!

"I'm hoping that they can make a better start than last season and show that they can stay up there at the top.

"Wembley was a first for me. It was a great day out and I've never been anywhere so big.

"I'm gutted that Steve Morison left the club for Millwall but I can't wait for the new season to start and to see the new players in action.
