Yes, the famous old league club Grimsby Town were drawn away to The Dog and Duck in Hicksville Nottinghamshire. Landlord Tom Haddon said "It is a dream come true", having spent a wet weekend in Cleethorpes in the 1990's he has always wanted revenge. His parents however won a Darby & Joan Christmas raffle in the 70's and they still talk about "that wonderful week in Meggy" even today.

The actual day saw the 25 Town fans who used the Battle Bus and the other 25 who made their own way fill Tom's pub and then quadruple their usual attendance. The local heros played well for the first ten minutes and then the Sunday League side tired for the remaining eighty. The TOWN  managed to hang on though and the game finished 1-1 with a much needed money spinning replay at Blundell park next Tuesday.

Very good, I liked that.

Just to make your story even 'worse'.......the replay is next Saturday, forcing a league game to be postponed.

Yeah, sorry about that: three players got injured in the replay though and missed the next three league matches: Pearson, The Shop and Magnay.

Thanks for the report, not sure how I missed that when it all happened. Anyway, it's yet another game unbeaten. Well done Town.

Hannah. He worked really hard and looked sharp all game. I'm certain that this time he will be able to step up and take this form in to our league matches.

No linesman to flag him offside then.....



If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.
