Can We Field A Team Yet?

By: Dan Humphrey
Date: 14/06/2002

With yesterday's announcement of the 2002-2003 Nationwide League fixtures, and the continuing ITV Digital Carlton/Granada saga severely restricting the club's ability to re-sign players, Mariners fans may be forgiven for wondering WHO is actually signed up for the Mariners for next season.

The Fishy understands that the following players are contracted to Grimsby Town FC for the 2002-3 season;

1 Danny Coyne 2 John McDermott 3 Tony Gallimore 7 Alan Pouton 10 Stuart Campbell 
11 Paul Groves 13 Steve Croudson 14 Steve Livingstone 15 Paul Raven16 Stacy Coldicott 
20 Jonathan Rowan21 Phil Jevons 23 Chris Thompson 24 Iain Ward 29 Chris Bolder.

Others: The Mariners have signed young goalkeeper Bradley Hughes from Watford on a one year deal, and the likes of Darren Mansaram and Graham Hockless seem likely to be at the club next season.

This leaves little cover for injuries or loss of form, and would see the Mariners reliant on young players, loanees and even trialists. However, the future of the following seems to depend largely on the club's financial situation;

35 Michael Boulding, 25 Simon Ford, 12 Danny Butterfield, 6 Wayne Burnett, 26 Terry Cooke, 19 Bradley Allen.

So, depending what happens in the next few weeks, the Mariners could start the season with a side as follows;

Poor Town:

McDermott Groves Raven Gallimore
Thompson Pouton Coldicott Campbell
Livingstone Jevons
Subs: Croudson Ward Bolder Rowan Mansaram

Rich Town:

McDermott Ford Groves Gallimore
Cooke Pouton Coldicott Campbell
Boulding Allen
subs: Croudson Butterfield Raven Jevons Livingstone

Naturally, the Fishy team will keep you informed of all developments... stay tuned!
