Now then,

After a nice wee trip to the Isle of Wight this weekend I found myself in one of those little gift shops, trying to find some sun cream, pink nosed and with the sun making an unexpected appearance.

Next to to the till lie a rack of hand carved wooden beer matts with all sorts of strange clubs from Bromley, Den Haag & the mighty Grimsby Town.

That got me thinking, has anyone ever brought some not quite official town merch from further afield than Shanklin on the Isle of Wight, some 270 miles from the motherland?

The owner did inform me that he’s sold 5 other Grimsby Town wooden beer matts, as he has to order them in sixes, and mine was the last. In that case I believe I’ve answered my own question.

I recall seeing a GTFC scarf for sale in a seafront shop in Calpe in Spain. I didn't buy one for 2 reasons.

1) I already had one

2) it was 36c in the shade

I bought a set of wooden ‘Russian’ dolls in Prague in full town kits


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Ha ha.  

I don't like Russian dolls, I find they are full of themselves.
