As I mentioned in my last post, I know nothing about Grimsby Town and cannot tell you a thing without actually doing some research using the information provided by the game and the ever reliable (yeah right!) Wikipedia. I have done this to provide a small team profile to help me understand the team better but also anyone else out there that like me, doesn’t have a clue where Grimsby even is in the country.
Grimsby Town are not the most successful club in history but they do have some trophies in their cabinet. Unfortunately for the club the honours have come as a result of their taking part in the lower leagues. The small honours and misery involving dire finances that have plagued Grimsby Town for many seasons have meant that the fans have not had the most to sing and cheer about in recent years.
Grimsby Town do boast an all seater stadium which will see them have 8870 fans in attendance if all the tickets are sold. It is going to take some big teams to visit Blundell Park in order for that feat to ever be achieved. It is a fairly old stadium that in the future will need to redeveloping but the club’s finances are atrocious so any future plans in regards to the facilities need to be put on hold. It is even more unfortunate that the club’s condition is classed as average
which suggests that work will have
to be done at some point to restore it.
As expected of a team in the Skrill Premier, the club have very basic facilities which really will hinder any potential success that I could actually have with the club. We also don’t have the best corporate facilities to attract the higher paying fan which means that money coming into the club is minimal. With the club sitting mid-table the fans are not having much to cheer about which is resulting in even less money coming into the club despite us being in desperate need for some. All in all, the future looks bleak for Grimsby Town so it will have to come down to my management of the players in order to bring some joy to the Cleethorpes club.
