What would the new ground be called if it were on the docks though (sponsorship aside)? I quite like ‘The Docks’ as a name myself.

If the ground was built on The Docks or down Freeman Street, it would be a nice boost for Docks Beers as it would be within easy walking distance of the ground then.

If Docks Beers can add a standard-strength lager to their range, I see no reason why the new ground (or even Blundell Park for the time being) couldn't be 100% supplied by Docks Beers.  This should be encouraged, I think it would be great.

Steel's or Ernie Beckett's should open pop-up stalls at the ground and supply fish and chips too.

These sort of things can't be too difficult to sort out, surely?

I think it should be an aim to keep everything local where possible, without sounding too much like someone from League of Gentlemen!

Absolutely.  I know it's highly likely that the likes of Brewers Fayre, Harvester, Wetherspoons will all want to get a piece of this pie.  It's also quite likely that we'll need them to get it off the floor.  But it would be brilliant if local businesses could really benefit from this.  

Unfortunately you only have to look at how the local council sold out the local bars down Sea View Street for the Armed Forces Day in favour of a firm from Doncaster to realise this might not happen as wished...https://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/news/grimsby-news/armed-forces-weekend-pubs-rules-3027117

It's not going to be built on existing land. It's fish dock number 3 which is going to be filled in which is the furthest east dock. Drove round it the other month, has to be about 800m long and 200 or 300m wide


That’s a big hole to fill!

Thinking with my fantasy cap on (no not that sort of fantasy), part or all of that would be great as a water sports centre (no not THAT type of water sport).

For a start a 50m pool. Maybe a long kayaking/rowing/open water swimming section. Triathlons and open water swimming events are big these days so will attract big numbers periodically.

Would be good to see a triathlon swim in the Humber with a full tide racing through. Immingham in 4 minutes or Holland in 20

Long said this.  What we've got around there and then especially the Alexandra Dock South should be a major hub for water based activities.  From the Corporation Bridge right up and across the Sea Wall up to the Cleethorpes promenade should be where this town rebuilt itself after the collapse of the fishing industry.  We've got a natural asset on our doorstep waiting to be developed and exploited, yet countless incarnations of our councils (elected and non-elected) have done absolutely nothing with it.  

Hopefully this potential shot in the arm will spark something really special into life, something that will really make this area vibrant.
