RE stewards - maybe Towns problem is at this level it's difficult to predict away followings and it's better for the club to be safe than sorry.


It seems silly the amount of stewards they have on for most games. For example against Altringham, Welling, Southport there would have been enough for 3/4 stewards for 1 away fan. It is totally unnecessary. On the other hand Woking, Torquay, Forest Green, Macclesfield, Eastleigh, Braintree, Welling, Dover, Dartford, Southport and Altringham are all renowned for there high risk groups which have the potential to cause trouble. When was the last time it actually kicked off inside Blundell Park? I probably sound like a boring, moaning brat but I just think its pointless having so many there when there is a minimal amount of trouble . We have a high amount of unintelligent people in this town but I don't think anyone is stupid enough to run at a gate and get a banning order and a fine against Dartford. I wonder if they realise that the hooligans/ trouble causers only attend Blundell in which there are big away followings and they are not bothered about causing trouble at 75 % of teams in this league.

I'm not saying it's right - I agree - just offering a possible reason.

360 Town fans at Wrexham.

Great number considering the distance and 'rumblings of discontent' some people seem to claim we have amongst our support.

Would have been a lot quieter without the youngsters, but I too do not like smoke producing canisters and we should encourage the lads to think again about bringing them to games.

I really don't agree with the OP. I don't know what flares and smoke bombs bring to the games this isn't Italy, i personally think these can give a club a bad name.

Quoted from Paris Mariner
I'll repeat what I said in the 'just back' thread : Finally, a message to the 'Teenage Cas(ual) Club': If you must insist on bringing flares/smoke bombs to 'enhance' the atmosphere be sensible with them. Let them off around you mates and not in the faces of little kids as you did when you all piled down the front of the stand and don't aim them at people. The second one landed very close to to Wrexham stewards. You should remember most people stewarding at this level are doing it because they are football fans too - not for the money. I hope it doesn't result any fines for the club.

Fair play for renting a mini bus and being organised though. Supporting your local club with your mates it's what it's all about. When done in the right way. The shenanigans at Wrexham General just don't reflect well on the club, Grimsby or Lincolnshire so try to think about that.


I'm certainly not one of the youngsters mentioned and I couldn't go this season but I've been to Wrexham many a time and 3 out of the last 4 when I've been on the train I've had some Welsh billy big biscuits try and have a go at me so maybe this isn't a reflection on those from grimsby at wrexham general but more a reflection of the locals.

The more youth that go the better. When they first started travelling i thought they were all muppets and the novelty would wear off. To be fair to them, there's more and more each week, the atmosphere is superb - keep it up!!!

As for the smoke bombs, probably best not throwing them but in the stand on Saturday was awesome. If you don't like it, don't sit near them

Your final paragraph sums up entirely what the problem is here.
What exactly was "awesome" about being half choked by acrid smoke? Town were given the upper portion of approximately half of the stand. When the smoke bombs were let off the smoke became trapped by the roof of the stand and instead of going upwards went outwards, affecting anybody who had elected to follow your advice and not sit near them. There were people coming out past me in clear distress with their breathing, eyes streaming and coughing. The day that such inconsiderate behaviour becomes acceptable is the day I give up watching Town away. I have been to many away games with brilliant atmospheres and not a smoke bomb or flare in sight...Get a grip.


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

Absolutely. Matches are for everyone not just a minority. Have fun but think of others.

My girlfriends little lad , who is 7 has suffered breathing problems and had an inhaler for about 3 years...

I shudder to think what he would suffer should one of these be let off near to him.  He loves his football ,
and I wouldn't want anything to put this smashing little fella  " Junior Mariners Trust member " off going...

He sings the songs , and enjoys wearing either of his 2 Town shirts.  Please lads , think on before you use
flares / smoke bombs... just saying... might look good , but could seriously affect others in a bad way.
