Me plus 10+. I'll be heading down from London on Friday afternoon. Any recommendations for pubs etc for when I get there? I believe we're staying in the Travelodge. Any thoughts on numbers on the back of a positive display at Wrexham?


We've got Jason Pearcey, number one, we've got the best team in the land...

Lass on the phone said it'd been booked by Grimsby Town Football Club under the name of John Fenty...

The choice was the Oxford CAMRA beer festival or watching The Town in Torquay: the wife chose Oxford. Hope she made the wrong decision and we win, the beers will help me get over it of course.

I'll be there for the weekend too,

Thoroughly enjoyed our last visit there early on in our relegation season when we won 2-0. Great Saturday evening out around The Harbour area too.

There's a decent pub/club (Boots & Laces) at the ground which is well worth a couple of pints.

Some great pubs in torquay. Was there only 3 weeks ago. Some nice bars round the marina and if you go in a bit, a cracking bar called rock garden. Possibly the best pizza I've had! Other bars include mambo (view from the roof terrace is good) and a pretty decent cider bar as well.


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.
