The away game was the last game of the season. We were already promoted but I think that they needed to get a result to secure the last spot.

Not exactly sure how many fans we took there but it was several thousand and loads of coaches. I remember there being loads of trouble and our coach returned with about 4 windows and a dozen people less than what it went with!

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby


Tell me Mam me Mam

Best keep those geeks out of sight.


Då ska vi vända hem     Then we shall turn home
då vill vi dit igen             there we want to be again
Till det ställe som             To the place from
vi ifrån en gång kom     which we once came
     
För längtan finns             For the longing is there
hos folk som minns             in people who remember
Den tid som var             The time that was
finns i drömmen kvar     remains in dreams
