As well as myself and my Son, my Grandson (Archie age 5 and a bit) will be there on Friday night to watch the Mighty Mariners play FGR. But we have a problem. This will be his 3rd game, the other two were against teams playing in red, so he has a dislike for teams playing in red against the 'Black & White stripes'. He expects to see us play the 'Reds' again! As it is unlikely FGR will play in red how do we explain to him that we do not like 'The Greens' as well?


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

Black and White is good - all other colour shirts at Blundell Park are bad - tell him no one else is allowed to wear our colours at our ground, but they make us change our colours when we play at their ground sometimes !

Green is the most hated colour in this town because of fishing superstitions.

Reason enough.

Would also definitely stop any child going near an open fire if you put his pic on the mantlepiece.
