Quoted from ska face
Apparently the Hartlepool chairman has stated on twitter he'll put tickets for Trophy fixtures up to £100 each to prevent people coming & supporting the idea.

That's leadership. That's someone who understands the value of fans and their views. That's someone with principles and someone with a bit of nous.


I notice that Chesterfield have released a statement claiming that they were against the proposals...but voted in support of it anyway!   You couldn't write it. I hope those at GTFC aren't thinking that a similar sentiment is going to appease fans (if that's the way they've ended up voting, of course, we can only speculate at the moment) tomorrow.

Just seen the "statement" released on the website  

I'll stop short of saying "absolutely gutless & utterly insulting" right now, as I'm expecting some actual explanation a bit further on.

It looks like a cut and paste of a brief news report in a regional newspaper!

Pretty much no doubt now that we voted in favour. As always, Fenty's eye would have been on the bottom line and the increase in prize money (i.e. 30 pieces of silver) would no doubt have made him think it was a great idea. Clueless as usual, of course.

Typical Tory. Knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. Massive own goal and a little bit more of me just turned off from football.

Surely the club need to clarify what has gone on. If a decision has been made without consultation with the trust, it goes to show that the arrangement with members being on the board is only for show.

It's simple, I won't purchase a season ticket until Fenty comes out and explains his decision on why he wants to destroy lower league football.

Just sent the following e-mail to john@gtfc.co.uk:

Quoted Text
Dear Mr Fenty,

As a concerned Grimsby Town supporter and season ticket holder, I'm worried that the recent vote by League One & Two clubs to allow Premier League Under 21 teams into the EFL Trophy for a trial period in the upcoming season will be used as a precedent to shoe-horn Premier League "B-Teams" into a re-organised future Football League structure. I can think of nothing less appealing in football than watching the Grimsby Town first team playing against Premier League reserves and youth team players, and I intend to boycott all EFL Trophy fixtures to register my opposition to this development.

Based on my own interest, and those of fellow concerned supporters, I would be very grateful if you could briefly clarify the following issues:

1) Who represented Grimsby Town Football Club at last week's EFL Summer Conference?
2) Did GTFC's representative vote for or against the inclusion of Premier League U21 teams in the EFL Trophy during the 2016-17 season?
3) How was this decision reached?

Thank you very much for your time.

Best Wishes
MY NAME


Fingers crossed for a detailed response.
