A complete list of the original subscribersis printed at the bavck of the book." "The Mariners - Grimsby Town Football Club - are one of two sides to have played every single division of the Football League including Division 1, and the one team that has never lost at home - their ground is in neighbouring Cleethorpes. The Mariners have taken the Division 2 championship twice, theDivision 3 championship once and twice won the Division 3 (North) championship; they have also once taken the Division 4 championship. Town has also competed in no less than three FA Cup semi-finals, and was originally formed in 1878. Charles Ekberg has been recording their triumphs and their failures for 27 years and Sid Woodhead has been compiling facts and figures about them for 33 years. Together they have put together this fascinating, illustrated record of their home team - one of the country's most deservedly famous football clubs. Here are personalities like Paddy Hamilton, skipper, ironmonger and Club chairman; magical manager Lawrie McMenemy; stalwart scribe and supporterBob Lincoln and player-0manager Allenby Chilton. Here too are the never-to-be-forgotten Jackie Bestall, whose wizardry in no less than 428 appearances for Town stood as a record for an astounding period until beaten by Keith Jobling in modern times; the great Cockles Appleyard, who once scored with his backside; record-scoring Matt Tees and literally hundreds of players whose exploits colour the 105 year tapestry of this mercurial Club. Now only points away from Division 1, Grimsby's 'great days' shine again and again through these pages. This book is a 'must' for all Grimbarians and football fans everywhere. Published in both limited and general editions, it will put the Club firmly onthe printed record, with its exhaustive text, its many pages of facts and figures and its fascinating pictures of the past."
