    Proposed Return of Fans

    Yip, there for the cup match a couple of years later, we won that day too!

    GRIMSBY

    Just because it's not fair? Oh, hold on, we were the worst team in the division for most of the season and the league table agrees with that! It's actually a moan about the NL not relegating anyone but the FL are, or very close to that; as i said initially 'Embarrassing'

    So what have I to look forward too on my travels next season?

    I had a Chilli Dog and Chips for breakfast once (at an American Air Base on the Azores) and I'm still alive and kicking (just)!

    Yes, Haddock is a bottom feeder, but not as prolific as Cod. Grimsby 'fish wives' who's job it is to gut fish (they are very handy with knives) will tell you that they find all sorts of 'filth' in Cod compared to Haddock and it takes longer to clean Cod because of this. PS. I like Mushy Peas!

    Oh, something else that you might not know: WE DO NOT EAT COD. It's a bottom feeder, so always full of worms and 'shit'. WE EAT HADDOCK. You will have to ask for Cod if you must have it, but expect a strange look when you order it.

    My brother lives in Tottenham, so for most London games we stay with him.

    Grimsby it's self is pretty dire for good pubs but Cleethorpes (where we actually play of course) has improved greatly over the last few years, even if we have lost a few pubs. Willy's brewpub and the pub on the railway platform are the best two with Message In a Bottle another option, it's a...

    Stickied Non-League Away Support 2019/20

    Looking forward to the Willy Waving "My Dad's bigger than yours". Should be some large followings (Covid willing), especially if we and the other 'proper clubs' down here have good seasons.

    I think Weymouth might be a highlight, for me Dover too; we will combine that with a cross channel trip, or holiday if the dates fit nicely.

    I've got 'The Hop & Vine' on my radar for Ruislip.

    Manchester trains from Wales run through Shrewsbury, so it shouldn't be a problem getting there and if I had to go on into Manchester I'd be able to have a beer or two before popping back South again.

    For some reason I've never been to Hartlepool. I did have a good RAF mate from there once. He loved boxing; never won a bout in his life and he had the biggest cauliflower ears I've ever seen. I also remember a TV documentary about a Boxing Club in West Hartlepool. The guy that ran it was ace...

    Cheers Adam. Belgian Beer and driving is not a good option, but I might take the train next time. Glad to hear they've spent some time and money? The whole town appeared a bit 'run down' on my two visits.
