Grimsby Town 1 Frem A/S 3

By: Jostein Jensen
Date: 22/07/2002

GRIMSBY played some rather good football today as the ball went quickly forward, but Frem finally took the honours despite ending up having only 10 men.

The Mariners started in a 4-4-2 formation with Coyne; McDermott, Gallimore, Ford, Raven; Cooke, Campbell, Pouton, Luntana; Livingstone, Jevons initially on the pitch.

Grimsby's goal came from a shot by Cooke after 30 minutes. Or Cock as the programme said. A great finish from just outside the box. The ball went via the post to the keeper's right side.

A goal that surely warmed in the very wet weather. Frem's 42nd minute equalizer by Kim Kristensen was however of even higher class - a canon in the top corner past a chanceless Coyne.

In the second half all of Grimsby's young subs got the chance except goalie Morgan Cranley.

The second half was rather equally balanced in play, but Frem had some sharp and fast (at least faster than Raves) strikers.

The 280 spectators in the crowd first saw the smart defender De Souza get sent off after 52 minutes before Martin Jeppesen after 57 minutes scored from a rebound.

Then after 74 minutes their really good striker Mirko Selak dribbled through Grimsby's defense and made it 3-1 to the home team at Valby Idrætspark.

We showed good enthusiasm in this game, there were several mass quarrels and the referee even had to speak to the two teams captains to calm it down.

Grimsby played well on the ground, the ball really rolled their way on the good surface.

Out-of-contract defender Simon Ford was injured during the game and was replaced by Paul Groves near the end, who had not intended to take part in the game

FREM: Stefan Campagnolo; Samir Haiba, Jairo Antonio De Souza, Tim Ilsø, Stefan K. Hansen; Kim Kristensen, Thomas Thøgersen, Ayeni Bosun, Rasmus Jørgensen; Martin Jeppesen, Mirko Selak.
