As part of #PaulRobinsonDay, the Blues skipper gives bcfc.com a selection of his firsts and lasts.

My first memory... would have been my first proper family holiday. We went to Spain on a train and I was about five-years-old.

My first pair of boots.. that's a tough one to recall but it must have been Mitres.

My first replica shirt.. was a Manchester United one because my dad supported them and he tried to convert me.

My first car... was a clapped out Ford Fiesta, a blue one.

My first game as a fan.. was, I think, Watford at home to Tottenham Hotspur. It was when the likes of John Barnes, Kenny Jackett and Nigel Gibbs were playing for Watford.

The last song I downloaded.. was 'Wake Me Up' by Avicii for my eldest lad.

The last holiday destination I went to... was Salema in Portugal with the family.

The last thing I Googled... would have been tickets for Alton Towers.

The last present I bought... was for my brother's birthday on September 14. I can't tell you what it is because he hasn't opened it yet.

The last film I watched... was Despicable Me 2 with my wife and kids.
