Quoted from Rodley Mariner
We're hanging around in a half-decent position but I really think if we can have a run with a fully (or nearly) fit squad then we have lots of options and might just be capable of putting a real run together.

Tends to be later in the season when lots of teams in the conference with small squads struggle and that could be when we can push on. Who else in the Conference can put out a bench with the quality of paddy, disley, lenny and arnold on it and pittman and aswad still to come back?

Fully agree, and we are very capable if we can just find that one magic word-,

Well if anyone doubts the quality in our squad they are not watching the same players as me. We have the best midfield for ages and the quality of some our play and work rate was great to watch. First half it was close with Steve Burr's team trying to play good football made for a good contest. We did at least score from a corner. The young lad Oates showed some good skills early on but tired and maybe should have come off a little earlier. After Ross's excellent goal we always looked like winning the game and the score line could have been more emphatic and we did miss a penalty of course. Despite that Hannah deserved his ovation for a very hardworking game. It was good to see Arnold on the pitch and although they were tired by then he took up some good positions and showed what a good finisher he is. What can one say about my mate Lenny, well supported by the crowd today and he responded with a cracking good 20 mins, winning the ball, laying it off, playing through balls and was denied a couple if goal bound efforts, loved it.  I am not getting carried away but with players coming back from injury we will be a force to be reckoned with and more of the same on Tues will be good. Finally Craig Clay has to be the find of the season.

Works really hard.  Scored one - the most difficult chance he had.
Misses two one on ones with the keeper and a penalty!

Have to say if it was LJL he'd have been slaughtered for that.

Great 3 pts though.  If we can have Arnold, Hannah, Lewis and then Pittman fit we have a squad that can beat any team.  Special mention to Brown and Clay - great performances.  Parslow did well too in an understated way.

That was just too easy, it was a game we were never going to lose but we needed the first goal to settle us down.
And once we scored it we never looked back.
Another one of those games were nobody played badly. But the stand out performers were-
Nielson again, absolutely full of running.
Hannah never stopped running all game, took his goal superbly but messed up the penalty, easily saved.
Magnay as consistent as ever.
Brown and Clay controlled the middle.
The back four were never going to be beaten.
A good all round performance.

Also got to mention the rousing ovation that Lennie got when he came on was very good indeed.


Great report! Thanks Tom.

Grimsby and proud!

Good around performance , Clay would have been my MOM  , everywhere on the pitch . Pearson as captain good choice . Macca in goal yet again a few scary moments . We do seem to miss these second balls too often and at times appeared unwilling to shoot . Midfield is much more mobile and does create options .
Credit to Chester who came to play which intern made for an enjoyable match
Like someone said consistency , what we don't want or need is wholesale changes just to accommodate the ones who were on the bench the week before .

We have a good squad but its what you do with them .

Made my Saturday night after a couple of stressful days.

As mentioned sounded a very good performance.

What a shame the Meggies game couldn't be moved to allow fans to go to both.

Well done lads. Top 4 by end of october

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.

Good hard working performance, led by Hannah.(hot and cold but I'd give him MOM for workrate alone)

Missed chances yes but I wouldn't say it was just too easy at all.
More that Chester's defence wilted towards the end.

Doigy had it spot on for me in the post match interview on RH.
Good stuff in patches, areas for improvement.
What he exactly means not sure.
But for me there were a few occasions we could have switched play better.

Can't knock the performance though.

Clay looks a L2 player.
Brown did well but rather suprised he got MOM !
Mackreth also worked very hard (as they all did tbf)
Oates looks like he's willing to shoot on sight, definite potential, perhaps tried too much too soon, a bit showboaty at times.

Neilson did great although relatively speaking, thought it was one of his quietest games.
Did notice there was one occasion he wasn't busting a gut by running down the left wing to receive a pass, guess he prefers the central role.

Magnay did well and obviously has a decent long range shot.
But really don't agree when you've got 9 teammates in front of you.  

Parslow did fine.
So did Toto but he needs to sort out these back passes and generally speaking if in doubt, stop flipping about taking risks.

Fair play to Hurst IMO, he said he wanted a fast start and we got one.
He could have gone 3 in central midfield to match them up but played 2 up front.

Thank god for that ,thought it was just me. Thought Hannah apart from his goal, looked distinctly average .
Lenny entertained when he came on , but glad he wasnt brought on to get a winner , cant help but like him though .Roll on tuesday.
Back four were sound , midfield all did well, Magnay Clay and Brown the outstanding performers , Wish Macca would catch rather than insist on punching.
