Cleethorpes Town 0-8 Grimsby Town
We got our pre-season schedule off to a flying start - scoring eight goals against neighbours Cleethorpes Town.
With three summer signings included in the starting XI, and two trialists, strikers Matt Green and James Hanson made an instant impact.
Green opened the scoring from close range, before Hanson grabbed an impressive hat-trick.
Both men were replaced at half-time as Michael Jolley made nine changes.
But having gone into the break with a 4-0 advantage, the second 45 minutes saw Town double their tally for the afternoon - with youngster Max Wright banging in a hat-trick in double quick time.
