Ever wondered what it would be like to play in Ollie's team?  Get changed under the Main Stand just like the teams of greats from the times of Shankly, McMenemy, Kerr, Buckley?  Feel the pre-match tension as you pull on the famous kit, tie up your boots, with the buzz of the dressing room, that familiar stamping of studs on the floor, the whiff of wintergreen on muscles, and the words of Ian Holloway ringing in your ears?  The final moments before the referee's whistle signals that it's time to leave the confines of the dressing rooms, and walk with your rivals … and heroes … once more down the tunnel and on to the hallowed turf of Blundell Park, emerging into the sunlight as the super fans of the Mariners cheer you out sending a tingle down your spine as you've never had before?

And then the match … trying to keep to the gaffer's match plan, trying NOT to admire your opponent's skills so much that you forget to exhibit your own?  Maybe scoring at the Pontoon End, or making a miraculous save in front of the Osmond?  And afterwards, that feeling of having done your best, your body aching with the efforts of the game.  The satisfaction of a job well done, and a wind-down in McMenemy's with a buffet and a chat …. Who knows - you might even have earned an ice-cream from the boss!

Now you can savour all of this in the game to end all games - literally (unless we make the playoffs!).

YOUR team will be Ollie's "Sponsors Army" and you'll be playing against the Mariners' Stars of the recent past. Already confirmed in the Town team are former skipper Craig Disley, Paul Bolland, Ben Davis, Anthony Limbrick, and Tom Newey. 

Who wouldn't fancy all of this and more?

For just £250 the great End-of-Season Academy fundraiser match will take place on Blundell Park on Sunday 26th April kick-off 7 pm. Your chance for a bit of fame, a part of history, and, maybe, one of the last few chances to play on Blundell Park!

There are just 11 starting places up for grabs, with each guest being provided with 5 passes for guests for the fixture and post-match in McMenemy's. You can secure YOUR place by clicking HERE. Please note that players must be over the age of 18 & have no underlying health issues.
