I think Foley got locked up in Cleethorpes police station once and our chairman PF had to go bail him out.

Paul Holsgrove
Jim Dobbin and Dave Gilberts second spells
Chris Thompson
Mark Nicholls
Mark Flatts


Mark Flatts must be well up there with instantly forgettable Town players. Didn't he come from Arsenal and played a few games for them?

Quoted from grimsby pete
Ray Lancaster  came with rave reviews but could not hack our fresh air at Cleethorpes,

He came from Rotherham and all the smoke in the pit mining towns effected him when he breathed good fresh air and it made him tired all the time,

Or so they say.


Ray Lancaster was about as fit a guy as you could get. Long after he'd finished playing for Town he was cycling long distances way before it became popular.

Here's a thought, being where you live, the full back wasn't Steve Govier was it? Used to play for Norwich before coming to BP, so would make sense to move back down that way.



No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Was he the one who allegedly had an altercation with Nigel Batch over Batch's missus ?

That’s what I recall as well. Think Foley was shown the door because of it.

He signed as a centre half, but played majority of his games at left back. Martin Young - a cracking talent cut down in his prime - was the usual centre half when Govier played left back.
