Paul Groves Holding Contract Talks With Ford

PAUL GROVES is trying to sign up defender Simon Ford on an extended contract and talks have already begun to keep him at Blundell Park. 20-year-old Ford arrived at Blundell Park last Summer when Lennie Lawrence signed him on a one year contract from Charlton Athletic.

He made his debut as a substitute when Grimsby beat Sheffield United in a penalty shootout after a 3-3 draw in the Worthington Cup. He later made his full debut as Town fought out a 0-0 draw at Preston before Christmas.

Since then he has been in the team on a full-time basis and manager Paul Groves revealed today that he is keen to tie him to a longer contract. He said. "We've been speaking to Simon to try and work something out and we last spoke to him about this last week."
