Sitecom USB to Gameport adaptor

Having just bought a new PC, I find that it does not have a gameport socket only USB ports. As a result, I can't connect my trusty old joystick (F-15 something, I think). I suspect it's progress linked to the modern throwaway society!

Since it's better quality than the lower price-bracket joysticks currently on sale, does the above adaptor (£7.79 on Amazon)work to convert the gameport connector on the joystick to the USB port on the PC? I have found mixed reviews on the web, particularly on Amazon where reviewers have said that it didn't work!
