Monday 8 May 2023

Division 4

Grimsby Town 1 (Ogundere og, 7)

Wimbledon 0

Attendance: 6,733 (367 away fans)

Sponsors' man of the match: Shaun Pearson

Ah, Shaun, the things you say and do just thrill them through and through, as the corporate chompers joined hands with the hoi-polloi to get just a little sentimental over you.

Cod Almighty man of the match: Alex Hunt

He stayed on the bench a long, long time and watched the season gliding past but hey...he's got time, lots of time. He's alright, he'll be in our side for a while. His mind keeps time and made Town tick like clockwork.

Our gaffer says

The tanned Tyke is tired of life and wants a holiday, but, hey, you know, Shaun Pearson:

"Shaun is one of those that you certainly feel better for knowing and better having him attached to your football club."

Their gaffer says

The Wacko Jacko of old Wombledon was feeling like a kipper in a tie as his boys were stitched up good and proper:

"It sums our season up to be honest. It was a really close game that was decided by a freak goal. We had some good moments … we should have had two penalties in the second-half"

More on this



After all this time there is nothing new to see, nothing new to say. This wasn't a competitive game, it was a testimonial for Dear Old Shaun and a chance to say thanks for the memories. For better or for worse how lovely it was.


They say Wombles are organised and work as a team.

They say Wombles are tidy and Wombles are clean.

Who are they?

They are nothing.

Awfully glad we met you, cheerio and toodle-oo. Thank you, thank you so much.

Grimsby 'til I die... or cry?

We all love Shaun Pearson.

Official warning

Mr D Rock

Dr Rock had clearly been knocking back a few pre-match cocktails and was well into the esprit du jour. The orangina just wanted to have a quiet day by the sea and Shaun of the Pearson to have a lovely last jog around the mudflats.

On any another day we'd be railing at the general ropey-dopeyness and sniggering at his Nelsonian approach to blue tumbles far, far away. Does it really matter anymore? If we add the bonus points for clapping Pearson off, our survey says 6.01
