Greeting from Bulgaria! Yes, RnD have fans in Bulgaria, too.
My name is Hristo Margaritov, and I am 20 years old. I live in Kazanlak, a town in the middle of Bulgaria. I am a big fan of the sport. I love watching and playing football and tennis. I’m a student in university (finance). I hope to become a banker after 4 years. Then I will be able to afford to travel to the UK and watch with you. We will drink beer, sing songs etc. 🙂
My favourite team, as you already know, is Rushden and Diamonds. I also support Levski, Manchester United, Margate and Juventus. Maybe you are wondering how could it be – a Bulgarian supporting Rushden & Diamonds?!? Guess what… I wonder too. Yes, it’s stupid but I don’t remember how/when I became a fan of RnD. Maybe it was from a football manager computer game, but I’m not pretty sure.
I have supported the team for 9-10 years. My favourite ex-players are Darby, Burgess, Hope, Jackson, Woodhouse and Challinor. I hate Kettering! 😛 (11.04.2009 – precious date. I was born on that date 20 years before 🙂 )
I have watched only one of our matches – on the internet – and we won – 1:0! It was very exciting experience for me! I want to watch more matches 😦
I’ve met 3 or 4 fans of RDFC in the Bulgarian internet society. I have a Rushden and Diamonds topic in the forum of the biggest bookmaker in Bulgaria – eurofootball, where I’m a moderator. I don’t write in it very often, because the interest is not big, and I don’t have time to translate the news. Here it is: http://www.forums.eurofootball.bg/showthread.php?t=1455
