📝 Grimsby Town U18s v Chesterfield - Youth Team Match Preview

Grimsby Town welcome Chesterfield to Cheapside in the EFL North East Youth Alliance on Saturday

4 December 2019

Neil Woods’s Grimsby Town youth team return to EFL North East Youth Alliance action as they face Chesterfield at Cheapside on Saturday (11am).

The young Mariners picked up an impressive 2-1 win over Walsall last time out as they moved up to first in Youth Alliance Cup group D.

The Saddlers opened the scoring, before Evan Khouri equalised midway into the second half.

And Ayodeji Owoeye secured all three points as his 90th-minute goal lifted Town up to top of the table in their final group game.

But it’s back to league action this weekend as Town welcome Chesterfield to Cheapside.

The young Mariners are currently bottom of the league, with two wins and a draw from their opening nine matches.


Town’s last league win came at the end of August as they beat Scunthorpe United 1-0 at Cheapside.

And they will be hoping to return to winning ways, and build on last weekend’s impressive cup performance, in the league this weekend.

Chesterfield are eighth-place, on 12 points – three places and five points above Town.

And the Spireites will be looking to continue where they left off last weekend as they beat Rotherham United 2-1 at home.

After this weekend’s clash with Chesterfield, the young Mariners host Mansfield Town at Cheapside on Saturday, December 14 (12pm).

Grimsby Town youth team end 2019 with 5-3 win over Chesterfield to move off the bottom of the EFL North East Youth Alliance

10 December 2019

Neil Woods’s Grimsby Town youth team ended the decade on a high as they beat Chesterfield 5-3 in the EFL North East Youth Alliance at Cheapside.

The young Mariners started brightly in their final game of 2019 without creating any real clear-cut chances in the first 10 minutes.

But Town put the Spireites to the sword in the following 20 minutes, showing lots of attacking intent.

Evan Khouri opened the scoring after 15 minutes when he cut in from the right and smashed home from distance.

Town doubled their lead immediately after, following some good play by Brandon McPherson who played in captain Joe Starbuck to make it 2-0.

McPherson then got a goal himself, after more good individual play, as he made it 3-0 on 25 minutes.

But the visitors responded and tucked away a penalty, shortly after McPherson’s strike, to make it 3-1.

But Town restored their three-goal lead minutes later, as forward Lennon Stead made it 4-1.

It was all action at the other end as the Spireites were awarded another penalty and tucked it away to make it 4-2 at half time.

Town came out with intent after the break as Stead tapped home from close range for his brace.

But the visitors were awarded a third penalty of the match which was converted to make it 5-3.

Town dominated the remainder of the game to pick up all three points, and move off the bottom of the table, heading into 2020.
