Version three took us to Wembley so it's hard to argue even with his final spell. Admittedly a mixed bag but he'd never have let this happen.

Well now you've both got the story just a bit tangled.  Paddy Hamilton persuaded Luton to part with Matt in November 70 and his first game back was a 2-0 win over Scunthorpe and the crowd was up by around 2000. And obviously Bobby Kennedy was manager.Matt scored one and a certain diminutive player got the other from a penalty. The chanting for Matt that day is still something that I can clearly remember,one of those things that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.



Well, now I KNOW for CERTAIN I'm getting old! LOL! :>)

I thought Chris was right in that it was Cambridge.


Cambridge's first season in the league. The last game at Blundell Park before the "Second Coming" was York so a bit of a derby game. The attendance was 4052. (The game contained one of my favourite ever goals by Alan Woodward-a volley from a cross by Dave Boylen but that's another story.)

The attendance v Cambridge was 7295 and as the article says must have paid a chunk off the five grand it cost to sign him.


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

Let me tell you this story about Matt coming back to Grimsby.
At the time I was one off only I think off two people who played with Matt Tees in the first instance.
The other guy being Goalkeeper Harry Wainman, in Matt`s first tenure me and Harry  were only in the youth team.

Bobby Kennedy on this particuler morning called me in the office to what I thought was a general discussion over the way we were playing, then he dropped the bombshell he said to me did you know a guy called Matt Tees.

I said yes he was a brilliant player for Grimsby Town, Bobby Kennedy said to me well I have to admit that I do not now nothing about him and I am going to meet him tommorrow to sign him back for Grimsby what do you think.

I said if you can get Matt Tees to play for Grimsby once again the gates will just take off and we will score goals.

Sure enough the deal was done and the rest is history.

Matt Tees will always be a living legend in this Town, and he was so respected by all off his team mates as well.
