Town keeper, James McKeown, who has made 284 league appearances for the club, says that Saturday's Unity Day game will be important for everybody associated with the club.
He said: “It’s important. It’s a big thing in this town, I’ve lived here for nearly seven years now and this football club is a big thing for people, it’s huge around the town. My kids go to school and it’s sort of become a part of their lives now.
“Players will be long gone, all of us will – the staff will, everyone moves on, but the one thing that keeps their football club going is its fan base.
“The football club means a lot to people, and trying to get as many people as you can inside Blundell Park, and that’s what it’s about.
“So it’s important that you get new fans through the door and hopefully now the fans can come at a time where the club is hopefully on the way up, and it’s moving in the right direction.”
