Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
16/09 Swindon Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
A minute later the ball was given away on the Town right near the half way line. The ball was zoomed over to their left, with Barnard standing off the winger, as if a particularly pungent aroma had drifted in from the Police Box.

Have you got it yet? Thatâ€™s it for the first half, no more action, a very poor game, with four added minutes to account for a bunch of injuries to Town players. Crane crumpled, Rowan slumped, McDermott was scythed down. Rowan was replaced in the 34th minute by Nimmo, who added some perkiness and strength to the attack, not to mention a very stylised step over with his first touch. We had four seconds of wonder, when Cas flicked the ball over a defender, Nimmo lifted the ball over the next defender and Boulding almost dinked the ball over the final defender. A surprising goal, one shot and four seconds of wonder donâ€™t add up to a hill of beans, but at least Town were ahead and werenâ€™t being overrun. Hanging on in quiet desperation more like. But leading.
Half time: Grimsby Town 1 Swindon Town 0
The crowd tried so very hard to get behind the team and the goal helped. There were songs of support, there was much merriment, we even stood up and applauded shinned clearances, stumbling thwacks and Craneâ€™s incredible stringy bandy complete miss when a through ball whooshed through his legs and went straight to Davison.
Fortune on Townâ€™s side? Too good to be true? I canâ€™t believe Town arenâ€™t butter.

"Craneâ€™s too tall to head the ball".
The report continues in the Second Half.
