Today I had a good chat with Elliot Grandin outside Lidl on Cromwell Road while Mrs G loaded the car with shopping and offspring. Not exactly the place I would have envisioned meeting one of our players but I suppose they have to do all the menial tasks like the rest of us when they have nothing else to do with themselves at the moment.

Who have you met, past or present, and where?

Jamie Clarke down Lincoln High Street during the relegation from the league season. Asked him if we were gonna stay up? He didn't sound so sure...

Ashley Chambers lived in my village when he played for York and wasn't so keen on us at that time, gave us the ssshhh finger when Jason Walker scored the overhead kick against us

Had a drink after the game in the Main Stand bar with Joey Waters and Mikey Lester back in the day, a work colleague knew them personally.

I've also met and spoke fleetingly to Slade and Hurst.

Used to speak regularly about GTFC with Stuart Watkiss when he shopped at the store where I was working.

I was very fortunate in the late 70’s early 80’s to work with the wife of a former Lincoln player called Dave Carr who sadly died in his forties from cancer.

That friendship not only meant I knew personally all Lincoln players from that era, Peake, Tony Cunningham, Mick Hartford, Gordon Hobson, George Shipley but his best mate was Glen Cockerill who I got to know very well. Glenn was big mates with ex- Mariner Owen Simpson so shared a few beers and stories with him.

Anyway friendship with Dave resulted him taking my as a guest to the 1981 PFA awards dinner in London and on the next table was Terry Venables and Tom Finney whilst we shared the table with ex Tranmere players including Ken Beamish, for older fans. We spent the afternoon drinking with Peter Grotier and other then Cardiff players and as an ex- Luton player spent a couple of hours at the PFA drinking with then Luton players, Tony Grealish, David Moss, Brian Stein and Mick Saxby wholater played a few games for town.

After what was a great night for me we returned to the hotel bar and in there was Dean Crombie and Joe Waters, as I knew Dean to say hello too from playing Lincs and Sunday League football against him before he turned pro I immediately headed for them and spent the next two hours talking about everything Grimsby and our superb team of that era.

Went to bed worse for wear but a night never to be forgotten, RIP Dave and thanks for one of the best nights a football fan could have.
