Any player from this day forth shall not wear this shirt number, or be forever cursed along with the following names...

9. Danny North
9. Martin Butler
9. Adam Proudlock
9. Charles Ademeno
9. Damien Spencer
9. Anthony Elding

Seriously Michael Reddy (apart from maybe Elding last season) was the last number 9 to have any success, even that didn't end well. Its a curse!


"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

It was a shame Reddy was so injury prone. I'll never forget the home game against Lincoln (it was fcuking Baltic - New Years Day I think) when he ran them ragged and we ended up smashing them 4 - 0 or 4 - 1.

Could of gone on to great things!

I think Mike Jeffrey might've been 9 between 00-02 too. Lee Ashcroft was 9 the year before and scored a lot of penalties.

Boulding was 9 in 03-04 and was decent, but after being sold his shirt was taken by Paul Warhurst!

That Reddy goal mentioned is the one against Torquay I believe when he runs a full half of the pitch, cuts in and slots past the keeper.

The number 9 shirt may be cursed or may be those players just weren't good enough. North is a time example. Could never fault his effort but he was first choice in a 'league' side yet he wouldn't be in the first 4 choices up top for our current side, shows how bad we got in my opinion. Elding could've been great this year if Hearn was fit but clearly he's using that excuse and he clearly unsettles the side so rightly so he doesn't fit into the plans.

As for Ademeno and spencer...just excrement.
