What's been your favourite moment of the season so far? Here's one game that might be on your list.

Morecambe 0-2 Town

Elliott Whitehouse scored on his long-awaited Grimsby Town debut to get the Mariners' season off to the perfect start and send them on their way to an opening day victory at Morecambe.

In a game of few chances on the Lancashire coast, Town had the better of the opportunities and struck the decisive blow on 68 minutes through the midfielder, who missed the whole of last season through injury.

Roared on by more than 1,000 travelling supporters, the Mariners then held firm to keep a clean sheet and substitute Max Wright added extra gloss as he grabbed his first league goal to make it 2-0 with seconds of the game remaining.

Town: McKeown (C), Hewitt, Öhman, Davis, Hendrie, Hessenthaler, Clifton, Whitehouse, Green, Hanson, Rose.

Subs - Russell, Pollock, Ring, Cook, Wright, Ogbu, Vernam.


Referee: Darren Handley 


Attendance: 2872 (1073 away)
