Disley's testimonial hasn't had much mention on here recently.

Does anyone have a list of all those signed up to play so far?

It would be great if as many as possible from the promotion team were there on the night. Obviously they would probably not be allowed to play by their present clubs but they could form a guard of honour for "Skip".⚫️⚪️⚽️

I thought it was being done to try & keep the interest up... Announce a player every day or so in the lead up rather than naming them all in one go.

I think the most impressive thing is the number of players that have agreed to play who are still professional footballers with different clubs. Most 'benefit' games are between the players current team and another club. This way the secondary club can use it as a friendly, fitness test etc. Each player will need to have got permission from their current clubs to play, there will have been insurance issues etc.

I would say the fact that so many will have gone out of their way to be part of this tells us how much as a man and a skipper he was held in high esteem by his peers.

Good to see

I think LJL would have been better thought of if he’d played for us since promotion. There was a lot of pressure on the team in general in the Conference and he himself was under even more being our main ‘strike threat’ (I use that very loosely, whilst being aware that he did get 20 goals in a season). Had he played for us this season he’d have been well thought of because of his work rate which is perhaps lacking in our current strikers.

I am at work for the Testimonial but intend to buy a ticket/donate some cash for it. I see that there is someone looking for nominees to turn the Freshney Place Christmas lights on - Dis is worthy of that honour isn’t he?

If true then it will give Killip 90 minutes. I think Russ will probably treat it like a reserve game, give some of the fringe players some game time in front of what will hopefully be a good crowd.

He's down on the last update on the OS, so it'll be Killip in goal for Town I would think.

I'm not looking at it as a testimonial, but a chance to give him a proper send off since we didn't 100% know the Plymouth game was going to be his last for us.
In my eyes he's more than just a player. Remember this a guy that other than playing for us has no affiliation to Grimsby.

Thanks for posting the video mariner83. Looking back, its great remembering the connection and good times we all had during the last couple of seasons up to the Wembley promotion. Yes I know it was tense at times, but it was FUN; Wembley, Op Promotion, Wigs, Inflatables, The Shop christmas video, Turgoose video........and that Nathon Arnold goal! It was a great time to be a GTFC supporter. Supporters and players, we were all in it together. All the lads tonight in some way played their part in that. Cant wait! UTMM!!!

Gutted to be missing it tonight. We can only afford to go a man down on a night shift and a Leeds fan beat me to it tonight. Bought a ticket anyway though. Hope everyone enjoys it and gives him a great reception.

No 22 is called Maxime I believe. No 2 Emanuel Akiotu. Also had Corie Andrews on trial who scored towards the end.

The ref was a fking joke.
Never ever a penalty for the all stars. And as for giving a re-take for the keeper allegedly moving causing Disley to miss, ridiculous.  Hope he gets reported 😉

Joking aside I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice to see the old faces. Thought Ross Hannah took his goal well.
And a cracker from Osbourne as well.

I thought all 3 of the trialists in 2nd half looked good. Especially 22 on the right and 2 on the left but obviously tonight was little more than a exhibition match but good fun none the less!

Great evening of football and reminiscing. Not had so much fun in a football ground since Wigs at Woking.

Great to see the ex-players. Think they’ll be like the Laurie Mac squad in years to come.

Ace!

2031 there tonight for a great evening of entertainment, Dizza and the players got a great reception and I'm glad I didn't  miss this game. It's probably the most on the ground football that BP has seen for some time with some lovely weighted passes with plenty of movement.

Didn't know the BP could hold that many!  ;) Good to know Osborne scored from the half way-line again.

Was an excellent evening. Saw more football played in the first half than the whole of this season combined.

Noticed Bradley Wood, Sam Topliss, Brody Robertson were all due to play but didn't. Anyone any idea what happened there?

I thought the reception all the players got from those that were there was brilliant apart from the few that booed Toto when he came on.

I was never his biggest fan but that wasn't called for.

Thanks Dis for what you did whilst you were here.

Entertaining game lovely passing from both sides marvelous what a bit of extra time and no pressure does although second half  the all stars lack of fitness levels visibly showed.

One lovely forward pass for Gregor Robertson never the quickest he just gave up on it look over to us and laughed great moment. lol.

The sheer pace of the current sides attack did them and D,J. showed why he should be starting games for us.

Osborne's goal was typical of the man and showed some lovely touches and passes. We need him back in the side ASAP.

The ball hardly ever launched in the air except Loyd's goal kicks that struggled to go thirty yards up field lol.

Great to see the old promotion/wembley winning squad back together.


The night belonged to Dizza though was well pleased so many attended on and off the field for him.

Thanks, I have amended the attendance, guess I got carried away with a really good evening  :) and Osbornes goal was a great effort, poor old  Lloyd Griffith was left completely rooted after a couple of good saves.

I didn't realise until I got home that we had a few triallists playing in the second half. Probably explains why they were trying a lot harder than you would expect from a slow-paced friendly match!

A lot of pace among the second half subs so it seems Slade is at least aware of what the squad is missing at present.

Really disappointed to not be able to make the game. Live several hours away from Blundell Park anyway so getting to a game is always a challenge on a weeknight, but was even further away this week due to work commitments so it was just never going to happen. Really wanted to get there to be honest.. I really only got into following the Mariners in the last decade, and so really the only success I've known for the club was our promotion - and of course that squad, and especially Disley, are the legends for me in the time I've followed the team.

Can only hope Disley comes back in some other capacity in the club in future.

Absolutely agree with that, 17 was the liveliest and him Akheem Rose and Hooper certainly livened up our attacking third, good movement and runs off the ball as well as interaction between the three.
A sterner test for him against realistic opposition defenders is needed though to evaluate.

However...

it was Turgoose out on the right wing who was the suprise package for me....simple passing, kept possession and some cracking crosses in that put our first teamers to shame.

I previously posted having him and Lloyd Griffith included took a bit of shine off the event in the run up for me however i am happy to retract that statement now as Tommy's performance pleasantly suprised me and seeing Lloyd Griffith perform actually made me laugh, which is the first time i have ever said that about him.  Fair play to both of them.

Yes Hearn surprised me, I thought as a footballer his injuries had done for him, however he has not lost his quick burst of speed and positional sense.
Also good performances from Brown, Josh and Hannah, some great touches all round without the pressure of a competitive match.

Not allowed by Alfreton. Players involved would of got sacked if involved!!
Disley wasn't happy about it and you could tell the team was short on players.

Not like there are league players is it...

Fantastic evening and was great for my young lad to see some of his Wembley heros and also see some older faces.

One minor point which I thought we missed a trick on...

It would have been lovely to see each player announced individually and walk out of the tunnel one by one, for each of them to get a reception and a quick song by everyone in the crowd. Only a small thing but would have been nice to recognize them all individually.

Overall though a brilliant event and really enjoyed it. Would love to see Diz back here in some capacity. A true gent and in my eyes he is a Grimsby Legend

When he scored the first goal we did joke that he only managed to stay on side as it was a pass from the opposition. Nice finish though.

Cracking save from Killip to deny Hearn at the Pontoon end as well first half.

I wouldn't say it was a dig, obviously didn't want them picking up any injuries. Probably allowed to come by PH but only to play 5-10 minutes. I know Wrexham only allowed Pearson to come if he only played 15 minutes, even though he played 25 last night.

I think Pearson said he was allowed to play 20 minutes in an interview with JT before the game.

I've got such a lot of affection for loads of the allstars and wish some of them were playing for us now!

Paddy played well, roaming drinking passes around around and playing with flair. Effectively the fulcrum for the All Stars attack for the first half hour.

Can't remember much about Quick Mick last night.

Quick Mick had a quite game but as a bit part he did show some nice touches. Pearson despite only on for about 15 to 20 mins still looked rock steady. early on Hannah and Hearn looked very lively. The extra pace was far to much for Gregor though lol.

Haven't thoroughly enjoyed a game so much at BP for a long time and didn't even cry when Dizza's voice broke when he spoke after the game.  So great evening all round!

Agree, Lloyd gave a fine parody of a keeper, even though when he trotted on in his yellow strip he did resemble an over fed canary. Great stuff.

To be fair to him, he did actually make a couple of reasonable saves as well.

I reckon Pearson was looking at the touchline, wondering why he hadn't been subbed when Jaiyesimi went past him too easily!

Interesting to see Jaiyesimi play through the middle, even if it was just in a friendly. Didn't look too out of place in the role.

Really enjoyed it; more goals than the last SIX home league games combined!

Initially I couldn't work out whether to support GTFC, or the Disley All-Stars.  Chose the latter eventually, particularly as they passed it so well, with a lovely Hurst-style lob-sided midfield of Dis, Brown and Paddy, with Arnold out wide.

Felt we needed two or three more if am being really greedy, Wood as mentioned, Clay, Tait, Pittman etc.., but was really good to see so many familiar faces.   Odd that GTFC had so many trialists second half.  Thought Clifton was impressive, most i've seen of him; full game!?

Dizza was fine until he thanked his family for standing by him then his voice started to brake understandably very humble man thanked all the backroom staff and Program designer and made a special thanks to Fenty for allowing the match to go ahead even.
