A mate of mine who supports Sunderland told me there are suggestions they move their weekday training to the South East in order to attract players to a more "glamorous" location. It occurs to me that Town could do the same. Our manager and a lot of the players live in Sheffield which is bang in the middle of the country. How about we train there at least some days of the week then the players travel to Grimsby for "home" games. That way we might be able to get this elusive striker plus improve our squad generally for not much extra cost.


Ask any man what nationality he would prefer to be, and ninety nine out of a hundred will tell you that they would prefer to be Englishmen.

Like Wimbledon training ( & playing) in Milton Keynes????

IMO it's an appalling idea. IF clubs like ours are to survive they have got to get closer to the communities they represent and training elsewhere sticks two fingers up to the area. Clubs need to do much much more in communities & to re-enforce their identities.

Isn't Sheffield a bit too far from the changing rooms at Cheapside?

Not a good idea at all,

We are Grimsby Town and should be getting the local community involved as much as possible,

BUT

If Town did want to take the odd training day away to a different area,

There is a nice big field next to my bungalow in Suffolk.

He'll be alright. You are allowed to take guide dogs on the train.

Great idea and maybe solve the location problem that has handicapped this club on future possible signings.
If an idea like this improves competitiveness why not.

As far as getting the local community more involved, i believe a lot of fans are staying away at the moment and some may find other interests and disappear forever.
Success breeds success.

Why not move the ground/club and get a larger fan base too!!!!!!


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.

It's not ideal but if it makes the difference between attracting good players then it may be worth considering

The key question is can you take a flask on there?
