That's a weird one. When was it arranged? Seems a bit pointless and risky. Pointless because we don’t have any trialists or loan players to test out risky because we are already being stretched due to injuries and suspensions. Hopefully it will be a confidence boosting win with no injuries. Will be good for some of the younger lads to get some more game time as they may well be needed soon….

And maybe some game time for the fringe/comeback players. And also a chance for the shop to keep his edge

In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

If they are going to do that then why didn't they just get the Lincs Cup final (that has to be played by October) done and dusted?

I'm guessing we and Lincoln always wanted to play the Lincs cup after the league match to avoid giving our "secrets" away.

I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

Quoted from psgmariner
risky because we are already being stretched due to injuries and suspensions.

Point taken but it's arguably a lot MORE risky asking Arnold to jump in at the deep end v Wellling AFTER injury though.
Even as a fan of "rotation", I'd have my doubts starting him v Welling so soon - think it's far better this way...

Rightly or wrongly if you don't change the team, it leaves others short of match fitness and practice.

Then if say LJL suddenly becomes unavailable, Hannah is expected to step in 100% match fit as miracle worker.
Not forgetting the very many others currently out of the team, who will also be needed in the future too.

Other risk for Hannah is, if he steps in v Welling and doesn't perform (through lack of match practice/fitness) he may be unfairly viewed by others as useless.
Personally I wonder if it'll be enough time anyway (and guess Hurst may try to wrap him in cotton wool tonight).
But like you say should surely help everyone a little bit (so hardly pointless at all)

Longer you leave unused players out, worse the problem gets!
What we wouldn't want (for example) is asking a player like Paul Walker to suddenly start a playoff 2nd leg after not playing all season.

Admit we've seen Neilson enter the fray all guns blazing with his goals at Gateshead.
But players still need regular time on the pitch to reach 100% match fitness.

Very good move by Hurst & the club IMO.

Do we have a team in the reserve league this year?

Don't think we have the reserves ?
That's another very good reason for it I suppose.

We don't have a reserve team I think.  I know back when we did we use to be able to put players out of form, or coming back from an injury into the reserves.

so it makes sense to arrange a friendly due to not having a reserve team.

Regarding the lincs cup if its a fixture thing then most probably both teams need to cone to some form of agreement
