Boulding Backs Town Move

11 December 2014

FORMER Town striker Micky Boulding is the latest ex player to show his support for the club's proposed move to a community stadium on Peaks Parkway.

Boulding, who netted 25 times during two spells with the Mariners, says a move is essential for the club to progress.

He said: “I think moving to a new stadium would be great for the club.

“You have to be progressive in modern football.

“If the fans are patient, and they get the new stadium and are progressive, they will do well."

Even though Boulding's recent return to Blundell Park brought the memories flooding back, the former frontman believes relocation is needed to keep the club moving forward.

He added: “I think the main thing is you have got to keep moving forward - you can’t stand still in this game.

“Football doesn’t wait for anybody, and it doesn’t take any prisoners either.”

And Boulding is hoping that the Mariners can get promoted back to the Football League this season.

He said: "From talking to Hursty, you can tell he's got real plans for the team.

"He's doing an excellent job in what is a difficult league.

"I don't think people always realise how tough the Conference is, but it's a really difficult division to get out of.

"In League Two you have three automatic places, but it's tough with just one.

"If they can hold their form together, then fingers crossed they can do it."
