Town's Winning Sequence
By: Rob Sedgwick
TOWN'S win at Peterborough was their sixth consecutive away victory, the best sequence in the Mariners' 127 year history. Grimsby have twice won five consecutive away games: once in 1951-52 under Bill Shankley; and again in 1982 under Dave Booth.
The sequence in 1951-52 was all in one season, with all the games taking place in Division 3 North.
As with the present run, the 1982 sequence straddled two seasons, and included a League Cup win. 1982's games were all in the old Division 2, now known as "The Championship".
Here is today's sequence.
Grimsby's worst sequence of consecutive away defeats stands at 11, which occurred in 1967-1968. Almost as bad was the club's recent run of away games between 03-Jan-2004 and 25-Sep-2004 when they lost 14 out of 15 matches away from Blundell Park, with a 4-4 draw at Chesterfield being Grimsby's only point on their travels (although even that effectively relegated the club).
Grimsby's next away game is on 24-Sep at neighbours Boston, who they have never beaten!
