Lenell John-Lewis was back at Blundell Park on Tuesday night, supporting his old skipper, Craig Disley in his benefit game. The now Shrewsbury Town striker was pleased with the reception he received from the Town faithful - but says that it was a bit weird running out onto the pitch again.
Speaking on iFollow Mariners, he said: “A bit of déjà vu, a few good memories.
“It’s been an enjoyable evening and it’s great to be back.”
Speaking of the great reception he received from the 2000 plus Town fans, he said: “I did yes. They hadn’t forgotten my song, which was nice. They were fantastic, they sang it a few times.”
And on the fantastic turn out for Craig . . .
“Dis deserved it, he’s a top guy.
“That’s why it was clear to see how many people turned up and how many players turned up from all over the country.
“I call him uncle Dis and he’s a top man."
Describing Craig Disley as a captain, Lenney added: “He’s someone who you could always talk to. When he did talk to you, he’s got something to say, something that you listen to. He’s somebody that you listen to and take onboard what he’s got to say.
“We are still good friends and he always has great advise. “
And what was it like running out on Blundell Park again?
“It was a bit weird,“ he said. A bit less pressure on me this time,” he joked. It was good to be back.”
