Quoted from Maringer
Cohen certainly played right back on several occasions. Away at Notts County, for one, where we won despite the fact that we had Tom Newey playing in central defence and Cohen, nominally a striker, at right-back. Just had a quick look in The Grimsby Town Story and the stats there seem to think he played right-back four times that season.


Stretching it a bit though to claim as someone did that RS took a forward and turned him in to a right back when he only played four games in that position!

I think Cohen would've played more at RB, but seem to recall he got a long term injury?.  He would've made a useful WB, as is the vogue these days

Cohen the chicken with no head 👍


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Just looked at the results of the 4 games he played at right-back during the 2005/06 season. Won 3, drew 1. Probably should have turned him into a right-back with that record!

Apparently, he's only 33 now. So sad that he developed his injury issues at such a young age as he could have had a really good career otherwise.

Quoted from grimsby pete
The thing about Tom is he does not know what he is going to do next so the defenders have no chance .

He is better suited to non league where he will be a success,

He did score one of the best goals seen at the Park last season though.


We are more than pleased to get Bolly back, he does have an end product if properly coached, we saw that the previous season with us. He got better and better throughout the season, making them runs count, whatever you have done at Grimsby has made him regress because he started off with you OK. We will get that final product back.

As for non league, as you will know there is very little difference between the top of the National and average teams in EFL2.

Nothing to do with the step up from when you had him in the Conference South to playing in League Two???

That's a myth.

Bolly may have an end product at that level, but he doesn't cut it in League 2.

Yes, the step up has something to do with it from the Conference South, but Bolly has the pace to get past the majority of players at any level. He came to us with a poor end product, but left us on a upward trend, and when he started for you, he was good enough for EFL2.

The National league is not a pretty league, a lot of big ugly defenders, space is at a premium, if he can find his mojo back at Sutton then he will be able do similar in EFL2.

Lets see, the jury is out..

Thanks for your thoughts sufc Can you keep us up to date as to how he gets on please? IMHO he's a typical national league player, with league 2 being a step too far, but I'd love to be proved wrong
