Sporting Memories Fixture Announced

14 December 2017

We are delighted to announce that the home match against Luton on Saturday 27th January 2018 will be a "memories game" in support of our friends at Sporting Memories.

More details will be issued nearer the time but, for example we will be asking supporters of both teams to come along in retro shirts and we will be inviting a number of former players to the game.

As part of the build up to the day, we are putting on a very special event in McMenemy's on Wednesday 24th January 2018. Talking Stock Productions from Halifax are kindly coming along to put on their play "The Last Memory", which is a true and moving story about a Father and Daughter's emotional journey as he battles the effects of Alzheimer's until ultimately, he can remember only one thing. That one thing is a big surprise and is all about Grimsby Town Football Club.

The play is being supported by local poet and GTFC fan, Gordon Wilson (+ friends) who will be sharing prose and songs which will be themed all around local memories. Anyone who attended the Mariners Trust event " Can you hear the Grimsby sing" in November 2016 will vouch for what a fantastic night that was and we look forward to hearing more from these very talented fans.

Tickets are priced £10 and are available from the club offices from Friday 15th December and will also be available online later this week.

All proceeds are in aid of Sporting Memories, so please support and bring along family and friends. If anyone has been touched by the impact of dementia, if you are simply a fan of amateur dramatics or if you really want to understand what a football club can mean to its fans, then this night is for you.
