I am sure many of the older posters will have known Graeme who sadly passed away last week aged 51, he was the chairman of the old supporters club for many years , played for the supporters club football team and was a well known local Plumber and Campaign for Real Ale activist.....RIP Graeme, condolences to your family.

This season just gets worse.

R.I.P Graeme

My thoughts are with his wife and family


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Blimey, really shocked by this. First Big Keef and now Wally. I knew him very well going back to the years of the old GTFC Supporters Sunday Footy team and when the Mariners Supporters club was down Kent St, where The Yardbirds club is now. I was also in the GTFC Supporters pool team with him too. The last time I saw him was at Bournemouth last season when I found him wandering around the streets looking for a real ale pub and we went for a pre-match drink together before the game.

RIP mate, another one gone far, far too young.

RIP Wally mate. A more genuine bloke you couldn't find. Sadly missed.


"That Grimsby team was pound for pound, and class for class, the best football team I have seen in England since the war. In the league they were in they played football nobody else could play. Everything was measured, planned and perfected and you could not wish to see more entertaining football."    Bill Shankly

Absolutely tragic news.

Graeme also ran the Blues Of the Month Club for many years.

He was a warm, friendly genuine person.

He will be sadly missed.

Thoughts to his family.

Sorry Jungle missed your comment about the blues of the month....

When the Blues of the Month Club restarted at the Queens, I remember the spontaneous round of applause Graeme (Wally) received, it really suprised him.
