Newest recruit, John Welsh talks to iFollow and tells us how Michael Jolley sold the club to him. He said: “He not only sold the football club to me, but the town itself.
“He told me how passionate the fans were, how much they wanted us to do well. He told me about his ideas that he wanted to bring to the football club. It left me feeling excited. It’s just something about the manager that got me excited and wanting to put a Grimsby shirt on.”
Looking forward to getting started.
“It’s a young squad and I’m looking forward to that and working with younger players,” Welsh said. I’m excited to be here, I want to put on the shirt and win football matches.”
What is his preferred position?
“Central midfield is probably my preferred position, I’m a one hundred percent player and I will give everything for the club. If there’s tackles to be made, I will be making them.”
