A Wolves fan is to miss his first home game in 37 years in order to go to his daughter's wedding.
Since then, he's only missed one match, home or away: an away game at Blackburn, in 1985, when his train broke down. (The train driver probably had inside information: Wolves lost 3-0.)
But this time it will be even worse: the veteran supporter of 1,916 matches will have to miss a match on home turf for the first time in nearly four decades as stepdaughter Sarah ties the knot.
"When they told me the date, I was gutted," he said.
"My first reaction was to hope something would change - maybe the game would be postponed."
He didn't add "or the wedding called off", but we're pretty sure the thought at least crossed his mind. Particularly given that his future son-in-law is, from the timing of the big day, evidently not a Wolves fan himself. Getting married on a Saturday? What on earth were they thinking!?
"I now realise, whether there is hail or pestilence, the match will go ahead and so will the wedding," said the auditor.
Paul's record is made all the more amazing by the fact that he lives nowhere near Wolverhampton, but 150 miles away in Stowmarket, near Ipswich.
In case you were wondering, that does indeed make for some epic journeys around the country. His six-year-old Vauxhall Astra has 336,000 miles on the clock!
He's taking it on the chin, however.
“It will be a big wrench, but you have to draw a line under something in your life. Not watching Wolves play never crosses my mind. It’s just a part of my life.
“Sarah will have a great day, as I hope Wolves will.
"But, don’t worry, I’ll be back next Tuesday for the Oldham Athletic match.”
