With Ladies' Day fast approaching, some famous Sky Sports ladies have given our female FanZoners their support.

This Sunday, April 26th, our four Ladies' Day commentators will make their FanZone debuts, as Arsenal host Middlesbrough (1.30pm) and Wigan head to Blackburn (4pm) - live on Sky Sports 1.

Unfortunately Sky Sports News presenter Natalie Sawyer won't be appearing on FanZone just yet, being a supporter of League Two leaders Brentford, but if she were her profile would look something like this...

About you

Full name: Natalie Sawyer

Nickname(s): Nat, Nat Splat, Gnat (pronounced Ger-Nat), Sawyer...the list is endless!

DOB: 23/10/79

Born: London

Marital status: Single

About your team

Which team do you support?Brentford.

How long have you supported them for? 22 years.

What's your earliest memory of your team? Brentford v Bristol Rovers, November 1987, 1-1 Andy Sinton with the goal for the Bees. It was my brother's 9th birthday and I was the only girl so I kind of liked that - being a 6-year-old girl mixing it with the boys!

Favourite player(s): Dean Holdsworth (scored 38 goals in our promotion season of 1990/91).

Favourite manager: Martin Allen for his character.

If you could sign anyone for your team, who would it be? Steven Gerrard as he's captain fantastic!

Worst signing ever for your team: Murray Jones.

Best moment as a football fan: Earning promotions in the 1991/92 and 1998/99 seasons.

Any football superstitions? Sadly not but maybe I should start coming up with some to ensure the Bees go up this season!

What are you...?

...most likely to say on FanZone: C'mon you Beeeeeeeeeeees!

...least likely to say on FanZone: C'mon you Rrrssss!

Natalie's favourite manager - Martin Allen

Describe what your style of FanZone commentary would be in three words: Passionate, Crazy, Fun.

Favourite song/chant: Sung to the theme of Hey Jude: Sing the song as usual up until... La La La La La La La, La, La, La, La and instead of Hey Jude, it's Brentford. Always good to hear that being belted out at Griffin Park!

Most prized possession: My 100 years of Brentford book that is signed by some of the former players including the above mentioned Dean Holdsworth!

What do you do when you're not in the FanZone commentary box?Other sports interests include tennis but love to socialise with friends and of course shop 'til I drop!

Why should women be allowed to do FanZone? Girls would offer the same drama and excitement to FanZone as the boys and it would be interesting to hear them as I'm sure they'd give a different perspective to it all as well - and it will be great to hear the girls have a go and give the boys some competition!
