I'm optimistic but I couldn't believe what I read.

Councillor Hayden Dawkins said: “I am not sure if a park and ride system will ever work in this town – but one occasion it would be useful for is football.“If Town keep on our current trajectory, I would be happy to see it cater to our matches in the Premier League in three or four seasons.”

It's impossible to do in 3 seasons but even wildly optimistic me cannot see Town in the prem in 4 seasons. But then Cllr. Dawkins might know something we don't!

Well, he did say "if Town keep in our current trajectory". If we continue to win 8 games out of every 11, drawing 2 of the others for the next 4 seasons we probably will end up in the prem. I'm not saying that's actually gonna happen like....

Hang on a minute.......the council who want nothing to do with the club are now suggesting that provision of a public facility may be dependant on the football club's continued success.

So Town sit top of the league with Grimsby folk streaming back to the club and suddenly the council are aligning themselves with it.

Opportunistic charlatans.

(Who can't string a coherent sentence together)


40+ years of black and white striped misery.

A quote from a person that is a walking talking bovine excrement producer. Have had dealings with 'it' before.
Probably only in it if he can line his own pocket from it.

For info;  Councillor Dawkins is quite literally Councillor JS Fenty's successor as Humberston ward councillor having been elected in his place in the 2021 local elections.

Put aside the cobblers he’s spouting, but that is an appalling standard of literacy for a councillor.

Is it? I think you are over-estimating the level required to become a councillor, I expect the only requirement is to be a bit of a busy body with plenty of time on your hands.
