This is Grimsby: Thomas Turgoose on his love of the Mariners
Think Grimsby and you think fish. You know it, we know it. Start a chant of you stink of fish and well answer with we piss on your fish, yes we do. The names of our fanzines C Sing When Were Fishing, The Fishy, Cod Almighty C tell their own story. It was Liverpools Kop that first sang you only sing when youre fishing at us, during an FA Cup tie in 1980. We changed the personal pronoun and turned an insult into a motto. Grimsby men, away for long periods in the fishing grounds, came home with a lot of catching up to do, with their drinking and with the Mariners.
Perhaps inevitably more about canadagoosecanadaoutlet, then, the piscine theme finds its way into We Are Town, a new anthology of writing from Grimsby Town fans published by the Mariners Trust. In one section of the book Grimbarian author Jack Waterman, reflecting on the clubs centenary best mens canada goose jacket exhibition in 1978, argues that during our heyday in the 1930s, the prosperity of the fishing industry and the confidence of the town were reflected in the performances of the team. In another, Town fan and former Guardian sports journalist Steve Bierley says of our long post-war decline: The trawling industry collapsed, while the footballing knowledge of the Grimsby board could have been written canada goose coat 1000 calorie bariatric diet on the dorsal fin of a small cod.
By 1970, the decline appeared terminal for both the Mariners and the industry that gave us our nickname. The trawling never did revive. True, manager Lawrie McMenemy reignited the club in 1971-72, taking us to a fourth division title. In another can i wash can i wash my canada goose jacket my canada goose jacket chapter, Grimsby-supporting DJ and author Bill Brewster notes that weve had better teams can you buy canada goose canada goose coat 1000 calorie a day diet jacket online since, but McMenemy remains a legend. He took his bleary-eyed players on to the Grimsby docks before dawn to remind them how hard fans canada goose coat 1000 calorie bariatric diet had to work to earn the money for a ticket on the Pontoon of a Saturday.
But by the time of our centenary, that revival had faded as Great Grimsby MP and foreign secretary Anthony Crosland negotiated, unsuccessfully, an end to the Cod Wars with Iceland which sounded the death knell of the fishing industry. Everything that happened to the football club since felt like a battle against a strong economic tide.
And yet. In 1980, a team best canada goose canada goose coat 1000 jacket womens consisting of local youths and journeymen won the Division Three title and Town were back in the canada goose coat 1000 calorie second tier after an absence of 17 years. The next season we almost went one better. Back in the Fourth in the late 1980s, Alan Buckley, with stubborn single-mindedness, built a team of hard-working craftsmanship C that craft at times spilling over into sheer bloody genius C which again returned us to the second flight. Attendances remained low. An abiding theme of much of We Are Town is a failure to appreciate good times when they were working dazzling triangles below us on the pitch.
And the association with fish remained. It was something now that our parents had done, rather than something we did ourselves, but the fishing industry was still ingrained in the way we related to our town, and Town.
