Witham Town FC ‘superfan’ James Beardwell was the club’s only supporter at Grays Athletic on Saturday. Despite being by himself in the away end, he made plenty of noise. See a video here.

James has become a social media sensation thanks to his loyal support and has earned praise from the world of football far and wide.

Sky Sports presenter Chris Kamara and Eastenders actor Jake Wood tweeted about his incredible show of support.

The former contestant on TV show The Undateables was the only away supporter at Witham Town’s 4-1 defeat against Grays Athletic in the Isthmian League Division One North division.
