None
I can't remember 😀


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

There's a few I'd like to forget  


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Who's the best player that you forgot played for Town?




Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Although I was a big fan of Slade in his first spell, it kinda sums him up when he got Francis in on loan and chucked him on the right wing simply because he was tall.  That meant we could lump it out to him for a knock-on.  Very similar to the much slated Monkhouse tactic of 2015/16.

Francis has since gone onto have a very solid career in the higher levels of the English game as a not too shabby centre-back/right-back.

About 20 years ago while shopping in Bury St Edmunds I got talking to a bloke who had a car on display in the shopping mall,

He asked me where I came from ( my accent must have given me away ) and when I said Grimsby,

He replied I played for Grimsby in the 70's I was a full back,

To my embarrasment I did not remember him when he told me his name,

So if there are any swots out there with his name I would apprecieate it.

I think he said he played about 30/40 times in 2 years.
