Quoted from Perkins
I think its pretty obvious that in time to come, the stand nearest Weelsby Ave will be known as the Crem End.

I would think that's a dead cert.  

I'll get my coat !!

My girlfriend has just finished with me due to my obsession with G. T. F. C.

She says it’s making our relationship too complicated.

But to me it’s pretty much  Black and White.

The official name will almost certainly be the Extreme something or other.

Unofficially I think we should just call it The Park.

I would also endorse the thought of stands named after Alan Buckley, and either Kevin Moore or the Moore Family stand.

I am surprised no one has mentioned it (although I haven't seen other threads yet) but I also think a case should be made for the John McDermott Stand. Record appearances, one club and a true GTFC legend imo.

The ground will change name every 3 or 4 years as sponsorship changes...

but Nimby Park has a ring to it.

Back around year 2000/2002, Conoco offered 1 million for naming rights I think, I can't remember the term of the deal.

As far as I'm concerned, whoever offers Grimsby Town the most money over whatever period should aquire the naming rights, the more money the club receives the better.

I have no issue giving away naming rights as long as there is a normal name to go alongside it. Very few stadiums are actually referred to by the sponsor's name (Emirates being an example, although even that has the name Ashburton Grove). New York Stadium in Rotherham has been mentioned a lot as an inspiration, yet no one called it the ASSEAN New York Stadium! I'd be happy to play in the Young's New Pelham Park or whatever name we went for, knowing that we don't actually have to use the full name.

As a matter of interest does anyone know the origin of Blundell? I know there is Blundell Ave, but I guess they are named after someone of that name. Who was he/she?
