🗓️ On This Day: April 3, 2004 - Grimsby Town 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday

On this day in 2004, Grimsby Town picked up a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in League One

3 April 2019

On this day (April 3) in 2004, Grimsby Town earned their first win in seven League One games as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Blundell Park.

Nicky Law’s men earned a vital three points after six games without a league win.

Striker Darren Mansaram bundled home a Phil Jevons cross, before centre-half Tony Crane scored against his former club to seal the win for Town.

And Chris Turner’s side were down to 10 men just before half time as centre-forward Guylain Ndumbu was sent off for a foul on Jevons.

But the win wasn’t enough to secure survival for the Mariners who were eventually relegated to League Two after a 21st-place finish – one point off safety.

Town: Fettis, Ford, Crane, Edwards, Crowe, Anderson, Lawrence, Coldicott, Jevons, Rankin, Mansaram.

Subs: Parker, Antoine-Curier, Rowan, Campbell, Thorrington.
