The Mariners were finally back in action after 168 days away, but Town boss Ian Holloway was happy with what he saw in their first competitive game.
“It was a good workout, I'm really impressed with Cleethorpes Town's setup. I haven't seen it before, I've only seen it from the road, but I think it's magnificent,” he said.
“It was a tough test, we forced a couple of mistakes in the first half, it was a great free-kick that George scored, and it's always nice to have one of your debutants get on the scoresheet.
“We probably petered out in the second half, but it's another 90 minutes under our belt. We've got another game on Tuesday, so this is all about catching up really.
“I've got loads at the minute that I've got to work up to before I play them. It isn't fair for our fans to see them yet, I've got to teach them some bits.
