Colchester instead next season Pete!


Yes really looking forward to seeing their new ground from the inside Les,

You can see it from the A12 but I have not been inside yet.

The video is probably the best video I've ever seen concerning Grimsby Town. Massive kudos to the club for producing it.

In many ways the victory at Braintree was a greater achievement than the Wembley game. From talking to people who went to the game the turn out was more a show of defiance than a genuine belief that we could do it. We all hoped but as the commentator says the odds were stacked against us historically and in terms of (very) recent encounters between the two sides.
There are many game defining moments in football. The penalty decision and Podge's gleeful execution must rank as one of Town's all time defining moments. The result was staggering. Braintree's heads dropped. The tiredness experienced by part timers asked to play two massive games in four days (with work for some in the intervening period), which had been held at bay for the whole time they maintained a 1-0 advantage came flooding out. The mood amongst the Town fans changed in the instant Podge's penalty hit the net. I cannot put into words how but from that moment I knew Town would win. To me it didn't matter that they had a player sent off. Bogle's goal though fantastic, with the best celebrations (up to that point) I can remember in 50 years of watching my team was somehow incidental.
At Wembley I didn't speak to a single person in the lead up to the game who didn't think Town would win. From early on it was obvious that the same team that turned up at Braintree had come to Wembley. That's not to say there wasn't tension. The beauty of the video is that you remember how you felt when the first goal went in, followed so quickly by the second. The tension ramped up after their excellent goal and you wondered whether even then the game could be snatched away..again. I will never, ever be able to describe the feeling when Arnold stuck the third away. The realisation that we'd done it made me just stand there yelling "f**king yes!" again and again I fell over the seat in front of me because the person sat there had left early!!! This video brings it back as though it was still going on. I've lost count of the number of times I've seen it....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Watched it 3 or 4 times already. The BT Sport bit about writing us off is actually a microcosm of our fans after Braintree. "We'll never get out this league with Hurst in charge"

After nearly a month to reflect the joy has now really sunk in. I've made an edit of 5 seconds for Arnold's goal and I just love it. Finally after 11 years of watching town fail and fail again I finally saw some success! Sadly for my own sake I wasn't here to witness Mendonc, Donavon, Gilbert, Childs, Groves, Davison, Crichton, Drinkell, Waters, Drinkell, Ford, Moore, Handyside, Livo, Birtles and Oster. I've seen Church, Makofo and Fyfield! I doubt that when I look back hopefully in 60 years time or so I will be able to recall a greater moment of joy than the 95th Minute, Play off final, 15th May, Grimsby v FGR and that ball ricocheting off the defender and the moment before he scored that you knew he was going to and Shaun Pearson leading round a gang of players to start the celebration party! That is the happiest I've ever felt and after 6 agonising years of torture we finally suceeded, we finally got out of the league impossible to get out of.


I know I believe in Grimsby Town, at least it is my Grimsby Town

Beautifully written Barra. Agree entirely.

Agree with Barra about the confidence of Town fans. Every single fan i spoke to said we would win and all were saying by 2 or 3 goals. The one abiding memory i will have is my very drunken brother saying adamantly and repeatedly that we would win 3-1 and that FGR cannot and will not match our passion on and off the pitch. So much so that the gamblers among our group stuck bets on that score and won a fair few bob. The sight of them all kissing my brother at the end with tears in their eyes will live with me for ever.

Agree with the poster who mentioned the sadness that Clay and Robertson are no longer at the club. Would have been great to have given those two the chance to progress with us in League 2, but I suppose football is a cruel sport and there's no room for sentiment. Would obviously have loved to have seen Nolan too but that was out of our hands.

At the time I didn't realise the keeper had got anything on it. From the camera angle it was a goal all the way. You have to say it was an unbelievable save...
