Two To Sign Today

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 09/07/2004

SHEFFIELD United winger, Andy Parkinson is expected to sign a two year deal with the Mariners later today. Described as a left winger, he can play as a forward or midfielder.

Beginning his career at Tranmere in 1996, he joined Sheffield United in July 2003 but has spent all of 2004 up to May with Notts County on loan.

Position Forward

Russell Slade told Mariners Net; "Obviously we're delighted that we've got Andy Parkinson. We feel that we are bringing in a player that is above the level that we are at this season."

"He's been at Sheffield United and Tranmere and he's got great pedigree and a great turn of pace. He's inventive and can score goals aswell. He needs to get his career back on path, and I'm just delighted that he's decided that Grimsby is the place where he can do it. He wants to come here, he wants to play football"

"I think it is a great signing for the football club. He had a year left on his contract but that's been negotiated. I've been after him for 4-5 weeks. We've grinded this one out and in the end we've got our man."

Also expecting to sign today is Terry Fleming From Cambridge.

Fleming's described as a pacy utility player who is comfortable in midfield, right-back or as a wing-back. But he also possesses a long throw which was a successful asset for Preston when he was there.
