Cod Head Pete Conboy

The following is an interview of Pete Conboy undertaken by The Fishy.

When did you first start supporting the Mariners, and what was your first game?

GTFC v Notts County 1970-71, 2-1 to Town. This was the game before Matt Tees returned to GTFC.

Who is the best player you ever saw wearing a Grimsby Town shirt?

Joe Waters

If there is one game you were allowed to go back in time and watch what would it be and why?

GTFC v Exeter City 1972

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

My favourite ground is Newcastle's St. James Park. I've been 4 times and we've won 4 times.
My least favourite is Cambridge Utd.

What, in your opinion, are GTFC's best and worst seasons since you have been supporting them?

The best season is 79-80 when we were the Old Div. 3 champions, League Cup quarter finals and taking 10,000 to Anfield.
The worst season was Mike L***s relegation season 86-87.

What is the most eventful day you have ever had in the course of following the Mariners?

Leicester away 1982/83. I copped with a really fit law student at an all night party at Leeds University, but had to leave after a couple of hours with her in her bed to go catch the train to Leicester - meeting some mates for beer and footie, she never really understood and the relationship quickly floundered.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

Alan Buckley

How many games a season do you get to now, and what do you do while Town are playing games that you can't get to?

I live in Ireland now so I only make 4-5 a season. I previously averaged 20ish. The best ever is 40 in the 90-91 promotion season.

Name your all-time starting eleven since you have been watching Town?

Nigel Batch
John McDermott
Gary Croft
Peter Handyside
Paul Futcher
Tony Ford
Joe Waters
Paul Groves
Jack Lewis
Kevin Drinkell
Clive Mendonca

Trevor Whymark
Bobby Cumming
Kevin Moore
Aidan Davison
Dave Gilbert

Do your children support the Mariners?

We have two children, Patrick aged 5 is a Town fan at the moment but probably wavering after that display vs Barnsley on Boxing Day.
Katie aged 1+ - can't decide between Town and Arsenal!
