Ingen lett motstander i FA cupen

Grimsby fikk tøff motstand i første runde av FA cupen – hjemmekamp mot MK Dons. Kampen spilles trolig lørdag 10. november, iallefall i løpet av den ovale weekenden det gjelder.

MK Dons ligger på 3. plass i League Two, men har bare ett tap og regnes som den største opprykksfavoritten. Grimsby stod dog godt til dem i august da det endte 1-1 i serien.

Ny stadion i Freeman Street?


Grimsby Docks

Nye føringer gjør at klubben og myndighetene nå nærmest legger fra seg planene om ny stadion i Peaks Parkway. Nå ser man mulighetene for en ny stadion nede ved havna rundt Freeman Street og Garth Lane.

Dem som har vært i sentrum av Grimsby vet hvor kummerlig forholdene er i og rundt Freeman Street, myndighetene skal derfor gi byens sentrum et løft. Området skal ha fått 60 millioner pund i midler som skal gi nye hjem og nye jobber. Det er i denne sammenheng at man ser på muligheten til å sette opp en fotballstadion samtidig som man shiner opp området.

På selveste jubileumsdagen for Grimsby Town kom en felles pressemelding fra klubben og fylkeskommunen.

Statement | Community Stadium
A joint statement from the club and North East Lincolnshire Council.

Proposals for a multi-million pound new community stadium in North East Lincolnshire continue to be discussed between the authority and Grimsby Town FC.

North East Lincolnshire Council and Grimsby Town have agreed to look at possible alternative sites to the original preferred option of partly Council-owned land at Peaks Parkway. That site was identified in two independent sequential appraisals commissioned separately by the Club and the Council as the best site for such a development. However, since then circumstances have changed with developments proposed at Garth Lane, the Fish Docks and Freeman Street and most importantly the Council securing Government support for the ‘Town Deal’.


Garth Lane

The community stadium is a massive opportunity for the area and in the light of other potential development in the borough it has been agreed to pause on Peaks Parkway to explore the opportunity of delivering a truly transformational project. To that end the Club and the Council have agreed to look at possible alternative sites to the original preferred option of Peaks Parkway.

In a joint statement, NELC and the Club said both parties remained fully committed to developing a community stadium and confirmed that talks were continuing about where best to deliver the project.

“Both the Council and the Club are fully conscious that this is a huge development for the area, and as such, we need to continue focussing together on the regeneration opportunities that a community stadium can secure.

“We need to measure those opportunities against the Peaks Parkway option, which it’s fair to say has presented us with a number of technical and commercial challenges,’’ it stated.

“The on-going discussions over the last 18 months or so have established a strong and firm relationship between us and we now want to move forward as quickly as possible to hopefully identify the best and most suitable site and move on with the project, both for the community and the Club’s fans. The key issues for all of us involved remain What, Where, When and How and that’s what we will be working to resolve. The Club is delighted to be in the forefront of the Council’s ambitions for the town.

The joint statement added: “The Club and the Council cannot and will not stand still in terms of regeneration and all parties involved agree that we owe it to the area to do all we can to see a new community stadium built. As such, we are now committed to developing future plans as soon as possible and hopefully, once agreed, we can then push ahead and work with the community and the Club’s fans to deliver a stadium we can all be proud of and which will be a catalyst for further regeneration in the town.’’

Mr Pringle klar

Grimsby har leid inn Ben Pringle fra Preston ut sesongen. Midtbanespilleren kan både spille sentralt og på venstre.

29-åringen ble signert like før fristen for lån gikk ut. Nå kan man ikke signere spillere igjen før på nyåret.

Ben har en fin CV med flere sesonger i Championship og har vært innom svære klubber som Derby, Rotherham, Fulham og Ipswich. Han kjenner til John Welsh som han var lagkamerat med i Preston.

Stortalent leies

Grimsby har leid Sunderlands Elliot Embleton i første omgang ut året.

19-åringen spiller for England U20, men har slitt med å få spilletid i League One-klubben.

Midtbanespilleren satt seks ganger på benken i Premier League 16/17, mens det ble to kamper for Black Cats i Championship forrige sesong. Denne sesongen har han sålangt kun spilt for Sunderland U23.

Hendrie leies inn

Grimsby har leid Shrewsburys wingback Luke Hendrie ut året. 23-åringen har blitt skolert i Manchester United og har siden vært innom Derby og Burnley samt en del låneavtaler. I januar signerte han for Shrewsbury og han fikk ti kamper under daværende trener Paul Hurst.

Hendrie vil bli spilleklar fra tirsdag av.

Kontraktløs spiller hentes


Grimsby signerte fredag spissen Wes Thomas som forrige sesong var å se i League One med Oxford.

31-åringen er fra London og startet karrieren i akademiet til QPR. Siden ble det non-league før han gradvis tok steget oppover i ligasystemet. Han har for det meste spilt for klubber i Championship og League One. Totalt står han med 286 offisielle kamper og 74 mål i løpet av karrieren.

Thomas er spilleklar mot Lincoln og har fått draktnummer 39.

Vinduet stenges

Overgangsvinduet stenger i kveld torsdag klokken 18:00 norsk tid.

Man fikk ikke Lee Angol, men i følge ryktene er det to potensielle signeringer man vil ha samtaler i dag. En av dem ryktes å være Sam Jones.

Skulle ingen overganger gå igjennom i dag så er fristen for å låne spillere ut måneden.

Welcome to Sweden


Former Grimsby talent Declan Slater has made an untraditional path in his career having signed for Gottne IF in Swedish League Two.

The 18 year old played for the youth team at The Mariners the two last season. He also got a handful matches for the Reserve team.

Now he leaves Grimsby and Cleethorpes with 120 000 people to a little place called Gottne in Norrland, Sweden.

The place is such a tiny place they need to pick players from elsewhere. We became curious on this transfer and got in touch with Declan.

«After my two years at Grimsby Town I went to Gainsborough and kept fit playing matches and training, then I got a phone call from Gottne. An opportunity I couldn’t miss. I havn’t arrived in Gottne yet, I arrive there shortly.»

The move came around through LFE (League Football Education), meanwhile had the club seen som videoes of the player online.


DOWNTOWN: The grocery store in Gottne is the heart of the village.

Out on the county side
The place Gottne is a  tiny hamlet with 194 inhabitants and the centre is a grocery store. Now during the summer the temperatures are really high here inside of the woods, but in January the average temperatur is -10 degrees Celcius.

Declan don’t seem to be afraid for the cultural shock that awaits.

«I have done research of the place there and it seems really warm in the summer so far but I do understand the weather drops very sudden. I am living in an apartment with the also new signing Joe Cairns (from Walsall) which should be good fun. It is very good to have another Englishmen on the team and be living with one becuase we’re both in the same boat so that’s good.»

Even though this is level four in Sweden to train is still a free thing to do. Declan will train just as much as full professionals.
«We train six times a week including our game on Saturday, so it will be very hard work!»

Declan Slater was released by Grimsby, but don’t seems to hold grudges towards his old club.

«Grimsby Town is good for young players. You’ve got everything you need with the your gym on the same ground as where you train, with all the training gear. I really enjoyed my time at Grimsby Town. I had a lot of ups and downs but that’s the way football is and I learnt a lot at Grimsby.»


WOODSY: Neil Woods was a star player for Grimsby in the 90s and is now in his second period as YT boss.

The Youth Team has improved lately after the promotion back to League Football. Harry Clifton and Max Wright are two promising players from the academy that is led by Neil Woods.
«The club is defiantly going the right way with Woodsy. He likes the team to play a certain way and has a good group of players that are disciplined. They also have some very talented players coming through so i hope they do come through the ranks.»

Most big clubs got a U23 team nowadays. At Grimsby it stops at U18. Declan agrees that you could had earned on developing players longer.
«I think if Grimsby were too have enough money to make a U21s or a U23s that would be a very good investment to bring more youth players though the club. I think if your good enough at the young age you should be playing first team football, but there does need to be a U21 or U23s set up because the set up from youth team football to first team men’s is a huge step to take, everything within the game is different.»

We thanks Declan for the interview and will of course track how his new club is faring in Sweden from now.
