Merthyr Town supporters test

So how big a Merthyr Town fan are you? Are you a Super fan? How would we judge the merits of individual fans if we needed to award medals for services to the Black & White (and Green & Red of course) heroes who grace the lush carpet at Penydarren Park?


Hulby has come up with the following competency test for you to complete to see where you fit in the pantheon of great fans who have stood on the Wank Bank over the decades.
