DISABLED Wanderers super fan Kevin Prince has spent more than a quarter of a century avidly following the exploits of the Super Whites - even turning his bedroom into a shrine to his heroes.

But his biggest challenge yet will be persuading fiancee Angie Atkinson to let him take masses of memorabilia to their new home when the couple move in together in a fortnight.

Kevin, aged 47, has collected Wanderers artefacts since he was a teenager, and has owned most of the team's shirts from the past 30 years.

He has amassed a huge collection of Super Whites-related items, and even has his current bedroom in Queens Avenue, Bromley Cross, kitted out with carpet from the boardroom of the club's old home at Burnden Park.

Kevin, who is a tetraplegic and needs a wheelchair following a motorbike accident at the age of 17, has followed the Wanderers across the country, and can recall countless statistics and facts from the club's history.

Angie, who has two sons aged 11 and 12, has told Kevin he can bring some of his favourite memorabilia to their new Westhoughton home, but Kevin may have to put some of it into storage. They hope to get married in the next 12 months.

He said: "Angie is not really a football fan, but she does well to put up with me and listen to me talking about the club.

"She'll only allow so much of the memorabilia to come with me, but I don't mind. I can't turn up and fill the house with it, but at least I'll be able to talk football with her sons."

Kevin says his favourite memory of the Wanderers is travelling to Wembley to watch the club's thrilling 3-2 play-off victory over Reading in 1995, which he says was "absolutely fantastic".

During the late 1980s, when Kevin attended most matches, he got to know the players, and remembers that goalkeeper Dave Felgate even tried to hand the Sherpa Vans Trophy to him after a 4-1 victory at Wembley.

He finally got to handle the spoils of victory a day later when the cup arrived in Bolton for the team's homecoming.

Kevin hopes to attend more games at the Reebok when he moves to Westhoughton as he will be closer to the ground.
