The Road To Grimsby

The Road To Grimsby

After 45 League Two games it all comes down to one game at Blundell Park against Grimsby Town on Saturday.

Argyle will be crowned champions of League Two if they beat Grimsby.

It will be a 690 mile round trip for the fans and players, our third longest away game of the season.

Grimsby were formed in 1878 with Blundell Park built in 1899 and today has a capacity of 9,052, Argyle fans have snapped up 1,900 tickets and will be housed in the Osmond Stand where there is allocated seating. The stadium is actually located in Cleethorpes and not Grimsby.

The Mariners were promoted through the National League play-offs last season, beating Forest Green Rovers, having lost to Bristol Rovers in the play-off final the previous season.
It was a welcome return to the EFL for Grimsby who suffered relegation to the National League in 2010 and were in the second tier (now the Championship) of football as recently as 2003.

They currently sit in 14th place in League Two on 61 points with a home record of won nine games, drawn five and lost eight, scoring 31 goals and conceding 30.
Grimsby have won their last two home games but before that were beaten 5-1 by local rivals Doncaster Rovers.
The current manager is Russell Slade who returned to the club in April.

The food on offer inside the ground includes a range of Pukka pies; steak, chicken balti and cheese and onion (all £3). Pukka pasties are priced at £3, jumbo sausage rolls £2.50, cheeseburgers £3.50, burgers £3.20 and jumbo hot dogs £3.20.

Argyle fans are sure of a warm welcome in the dedicated bar in the away end which is run by the Mariners Trust.
Although an old the room it is full of character and is decked out in flags, scarves etc from a many different clubs who have been kind enough to donate them. Please feel free to add an Argyle scarf to the collection.

Sat Nav for the stadium is DN35 7PY.
