It was so much easier when cleethorpes played in grimsby and grimsby played in cleethorpes. Back then folk from Grimsby knew to follow Cleethorpes and folk from cleethorpes knew to follow grimsby. Now cleethorpes play in cleethorpes which has caused great confusion. God knows what will happen when grimsby move to grimsby. I’m from Grimsby but live in Cleethorpes. I think. Honestly don’t know now.

Cleethorpes still play in Grimsby. Old Clee became part of Grimsby in the late 19th century (Clee with Weelsby got absorbed into the County borough of Grimsby). Etymologically (Old) Clee could never be part of Cleethorpes since the thorpes are subsidiary settlements of Clee.

So Grimbarians can still follow Cleethorpes Town as their hometown club and leave us Meggies to get on with supporting Grimsby Town

Dunno - but just done a quick google and find that:

'Thorpe means 'settlement' / 'village'

'By means 'settlement / village'


Grimsby - 900 AD is older than Cleethorpes - 1300 A D  - Richard de Cle of Suffolk apparently  arrived at this time.


So likely Cleethorpes was Grimsby way back when.


Anyway - so turning full circle - how about amalgamating all of the efforts of the last 700 years to form a football club, in Grimsby / Cleethorpes, capable of competing higher up the nations league tables?

Name?  - Grimthorpe United?

                Cleeby Town?

Just saying!

They lost 2-1 in controversial circumstances. Seems to be some dodgy reporting somewhere.
