Cod Almighty man of the match: Curtis Thompson

Curtis showed that with just a little faith, if you put your mind to it, we can surely do it. A titan.

Our gaffer says

Don't mention the Parslow Point, John! Shaun the Brave fronted up and pointed out the positives amidst the negatives:

"No complaints about the penalty…It's gutting but we have to take the positives from it…we've got games left"

More on this

Their gaffer says

Alexander the Grate was annoyingly accurate with perfectly reasonable ramblings about this muddling mess:

"It was a game we could have won but we did not do enough to say we should have won"


Goals win matches. You can't score if you don’t shoot; Town don't shoot.

They all worked hard, they tried very hard, but it's so very hard to watch.

Won't someone please put the beached whale back in the water, or at least the ball in the net? A Hurstian grind with unHurstian players as the curtains begin to draw upon this season.

We've seen this before, we know how it ends.


They came, they bored, they got lucky.

Just not good enough, they really should be better than this.

Grimsby 'til I die... or cry?

We're still here even if they can’t hear us.

Official warning

Mr M Corlet

Three beards in a fountain each one seeking happiness in avoiding eye contact. He wasn't the reason we lost two points, he tried hard to keep it simple and simply adequate: 6.66
