It was actually yesterday but here's the opening

I didn’t really want to sign for Grimsby Town. I’d played in the Football League — in all three tiers beneath the Premier League — for more than a decade. Dropping out of the professional ranks into the National League was, if I’m honest, a bit of a dent to my pride. An unfashionable town on the north Lincolnshire coast wasn’t the most alluring place to play, but it was all there was.

Grimsby, however, as vividly as any of the six clubs I represented during my career, showed me just what a football club means to its town. To its people. Not all of them of course. But as a place where people congregate in their hundreds or thousands, a central pillar of a community, nothing comes close in provincial towns.

You can register for a free subscription but only get a very limited amount of articles. If you only read the Gregor Robertson articles it's fine for that.

I would read The Times a lot more but it's a very expensive subscription.

Thanks. It's not a paper I read normally.
