I know we all are. I wonder how proud you’d be to work for a ‘local’ paper that runs a list of reasons to be proud of that town AND THEY CAN’T EVEN GET THE FECKIN DATE THE CLUB WAS FOUNDED RIGHT!

1898 my arris! Only out by 20 years.

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.

I have always been proud of coming from Grimsby and have told people so,

We might be rubbish at football at the moment was  a frequent comment but we shall only get better I would said hopefully .

Under Ollie I am proud to say he is our manager and we are on the up, is my comment now.

We all agree Pete. You wouldn’t get a basic fact like the club’s foundation year wrong.

PS I’d have had Dock Tower on the list instead of ‘Great Grimsby Day’ itself.

When the telegraph was printed in Grimsby  KM  it was a very good quality paper and most households had one delivered ( I was a paper boy )

Now it is printed in Yorkshire,

Say no more !!!!!!

I thought it was printed in Leicester now Pete? I'm surprised it's still printed daily if I'm honest. The Scunny telegraph went to weekly some time ago.

Yorkshire  Leicester   it does not matter Les Its not in Grimsby is my point

Its no wonder most people don't buy it now.

The Football  later named the sports telegraph was very good and I waited for it to pop through the door when I was young and tried to read it before my dad got his hands on it,  never got there first though.

There use to be a que in the paper shop at 6 on a Saturday night waiting for the sports Telegraph to be delivered.

Now we get our phones out as we leave the game. A sign of the times.

I used to be a paper boy too Pete. I used to go around  Scartho Road hospital (before the new one was built) selling them. Used to absolutely hate Fridays as the papers seemed to weigh a ton with the extra property supplement.

I delivered to one house that had 2 telegraphs delivered Les not a big house either,

They must have fought over who read it first and destroyed the paper    so had one each.
