Storey clan to side with Swindon
HIS mum’s a Wolves fan, his dad’s a Wolves fan, his grandad’s a Wolves fan - but this week Miles Storey’s entire family will be packed in the away end at Molineux cheering on Swindon Town.
For six years the striker himself was a season-ticket holder at the West Midlands outfit and the 19-year-old was also on Wolves’ books as a kid, only strengthening the Storeys’ ties to the club.
However, when the front man went to purchase tickets for his nearest and dearest ahead of the weekend, he was told to buy a block of seats amongst the travelling Swindon faithful.
“It’s going to be strange this weekend. I’ve bought 25 tickets for my family so my mum’s bank balance has gone down the swanny a bit,” he said.
“All the family are going down, we’re all Wolves fans and it’s going to be strange for me because I was a season-ticket holder for six years when I was in high school and junior school.
“It’s going to be really strange to go back there on a different team in the away changing room.
“They’re sitting in the Swindon end. They’re Swindon fans for Saturday. If I score I’ll be ecstatic.
“That’s where they wanted the tickets. I told them they could get tickets in the Wolves end if they wanted but they all wanted them in the Swindon end. I’ve done well, haven’t I?
“My grandad is a big, big Wolves fan but they’re all becoming Swindon fans now.
“I’ve been here for three or four years so they really are starting to turn into Swindon fans. They’re looking at our results before Wolves. I think they’ll all be hoping for a Swindon win.
“She loves the away games, I think she prefers them. The atmosphere in the away end is brilliant, especially with our fans and the way we travel. They always travel in good numbers.”
With his fan’s hat on, Storey expects Wolves to be one of the sides to beat in League One this season.
“It is strange to see,” he said. “They deserve to be in League One after the last couple of season’s that they’ve had but they’ve got to be looking for automatic promotion now.
“They’ve got players like Kevin Doyle, (Bakary) Sako who could arguably play in the Premier League. They’ve got a real chance of getting back up.
“Hopefully they don’t beat us on Saturday, I’m a Swindon fan on Saturday, but I’m looking forward to seeing how Wolves do this season.
“I think everyone knows what Wolves are about. They’ve got a lot of good players. I used to play with one of their wingers - Zeli Ismail - when I was at Wolves as a boy and he is a very good player. He’s doing very well for himself.
“There’s a lot of strength in depth.”
