WE were delighted to welcome back former Mariner Jimmy Thompson to Blundell Park on Tuesday night.
Initially a draughtsman playing amateur football, Jimmy was an ever-present at right back for the Mariners during the 1964/65 season. The tough tackling player, who played alongside former England boss Graham Taylor in the Town back four, later moved to South Africa.
Jimmy was kind enough to draw the Half Time Bonanza winners
for us on Tuesday night and he received some rapturous applause from the Town fans.
