Question of the Week
Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?
Town Sign 'Keeper!
By: Rob Sedgwick
GRIMSBY have signed former Everton 'keeper Andrew Pettinger on an 18-month contract. The former Scunthorpe youth player left his home town club three years ago to join the Toffees, before being released from Goodison in September 2002 after being an unused substitute on just one occasion.
18-year-old Pettinger will be Grimsby's fifth permanent goalkeeper, joining Danny Coyne, and Steve Croudson, as well as Leeds United's Shaun Allaway, currently on loan at Blundell Park. Youngsters Paul Fraser and Bradley Hughes are also currently on Town's books.
Paul Groves has been looking to increase his cover in the goalkeeping area, due to the persistent injury problems on Steve Croudson, and the fact that Allaway is only on loan.
Earlier this season there was speculation that first choice 'keeper Danny Coyne's, the top earner at the club, departure was imminent after it was revealed on this site that Crystal Palace had made an offer to the Welsh international to move to Sehurst Park.
This site is by the fans, for the fans, and we will consider articles on any subject relating to the Mariners whether it be related to current news, a nostalgic look back in the past, a story about a player, a game or games in the past, something about Blundell Park or football in general.
