One of the finest nights in Mariners history. I think most of us got urine wet through but nobody cared.

How the mighty have fallen.  And I don't mean Everton.

.........................

This was a top-quality Everton side who did very well in Europe.   Unbeaten at home that season.  Town did brilliantly to hold out for nearly the full 90 mins before snatching the winner.  If we can show the same character, determination and fight for the rest of this season, then we have a very good chance of going up.

They were THE team of the moment at the time. They had won their previous 10 games in all competitions and I think they went on to win the 1st Division title and The European Cup Winners Cup the same season. Our defence, particularly Batchy and Chris Nicholl were unbeatable that night. I don't think that I have ever seen a more one sided game where the team on the receiving end have won!

I remember we stopped at Hartshead Moor services on the way home and the team coach pulled in too, only to be mobbed by hundreds of Town fans.

I wish you would stop putting all these great times of the past on Les,

It only reminds me how low we have sunk.

Brilliant memories Pete. I'm glad we have them to look back on unlike some clubs.

Didn't go myself that night, unemployed at the time and couldn't afford it
Listened to it on the radio
Remember the commentary to this day

Wonderful night.  Went to the Clee park after for a celebration drink with Brazilnut and his mates.


<'(((((<

When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby


Tell me Mam me Mam
I dont want no tea no tea
I'm watching the Grimsby
Tell me Mam me mam

Wonderful night, under the cosh for most of the match, Batchy was superb and Wilkies header beat the finest keeper in the league at the time, unbelievable
