I remember the Chelsea game, I have always thought that the ref bottled it and gave them a penalty to let them win. (not bitter or twisted at all  ). I was a lower findus season ticket holder, but when I arrived at the ground the stewards made us all go into the pontoon as they had given our stand to Chelsea. They initially gave them the Osmond half of the stand and left the other half empty, but it soon filled up as the police didnt want ticketless Chelsea fans wandering around Grimsby. I was knarked with Ramsdens, who were on the board at the time, if not Chairing it, they successfully got the police to shut all the pubs near the ground, and then sold cans of beer from their supermarket to the Chelsea fans. There were loads of Chelsea fans there that day, if I remember correctly Chelsea were already up, but had to beat us to go up as champions. Dont know how many Chelsea were there but I remember thinking that if it kicks off today its going to be fun getting home, but as it happens it was ok. It makes me pine for those days again, good opposition week after week, cracking football.


I'm not sure they would have made much money that day actually as a mob of Chelsea went on a mad shoplifting spree in their store that day. I can remember seeing one Chelsea fan carrying three 24 packs of Carling down Grimsby Road.
