Town Reserves in Cup Win
By: Rob Sedgwick
GRIMSBY TOWN reserves ran out 3-0 winners against Bury in the Avon Insurance Cup Preliminary Round on Wednesday afternoon. On target for the Mariners were former Mansfield striker Michael Boulding, Graham Hockless and Iain Ward.
The match, at Radcliffe Boroughâ€™s Stainton Park ground, saw the Mariners' team dominate from start to end. Chris Thompson, who was a constant menace to the Shakers, hit the cross bar on five minutes. Michael Boulding and Iain Ward also went close for Grimsby in a first half which ended goalless, although the Mariners did everything but score .
Town opened the scoring with a rare goal from a corner at the start of the second half, when Michael Boulding superbly spun and volleyed the ball direct from the spot kick to put Town 1-0 up.
On the 90 minute mark Shakers defender Steve Halford pulled down Mansaram in the penalty box and the ref awarded a spot kick which Graham Hockless duly dispatched. Deep into injury time Iain Ward wrapped things up for the Mariners with a long range shot.
